Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Kitchen Tip: Bake the crostata on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Once the crostata cools, it will be easy to slide onto a serving plate.
  • Tip 2
    Substitution: You can make an apple-only pie. Four medium cooking apples, thinly sliced, will yield 4 cups (1 L).
  • Tip 3
    Special Touch: Top with your favorite ice cream. Cinnamon or caramel ice cream would make a great flavour addition.
