I really liked the crust recipe. I chilled it for 30 minutes, as recommended and then let it sit on the counter for about 10 minutes. It rolled out very easily to a 12 inch round. I liked the crostata. The only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars instead of 4 stars is that I would have liked a little bit of juice in the filling. I expected the filling to be just like an apple pie filling but mine turned out a little on the dry side.

Mmmm, Mmmmm, Mmmmm! This was easy AND delicious!! Just what I like. LOL Husband, the apple pie fanatic, was quite please as well. It is not too sweet, which is always great. The only change I made was to take a frozen pie shell out of the freezer, rather than rolling it out myself. Thanks Karen!
