Ingredients

2/3
cup dried pears, chopped
2/3
cup dried apricots, chopped
1/2
cup dried plums, chopped
1/4
cup golden raisins
2
cups apple juice
1
box Pillsbury™ refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
1
tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon cornstarch
2/3
cup chunky applesauce
2
teaspoons lemon juice
3/4
teaspoon almond extract
1
teaspoon sugar
1/8
teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  1. 1 In medium bowl, mix chopped dried fruits, raisins and 1 1/2 cups of the apple juice. Refrigerate about 4 hours or overnight until fruit plumps up; draining any excess juice.
  2. 2 Heat oven to 350°F. Unroll pie crust into ungreased 15x10-inch pan. In 2-quart saucepan, thoroughly mix cornstarch and remaining 1/2 cup apple juice. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and clears. Add applesauce, lemon juice, almond extract and fruit mixture, stirring until well blended.
  3. 3 Spoon fruit mixture onto center of crust to within 2 inches of edge. Carefully fold 2-inch edge of crust up over fruit mixture, pleating crust slightly as necessary. Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over crust edge.
  4. 4 Bake about 50 minutes or until crust is golden brown and fruit mixture is bubbling. Cool 30 minutes before serving. Cover and refrigerate any remaining crostata.
