    Loves2Teach's Note:

    This European-style tart is easily shaped on a cookie sheet and has an extra-cinnamony aroma while it bakes. Enjoy it warm from the oven. From the pillsbury website.

      I have been making this recipe for a long time from the Pillsbury website. A few things I've found work well: Roll the Pillsbury crust out a bit thinner. To avoid leaking, place 1/2 cup of graham cracker crumbs on the crust, leaving 2" all around bare, before adding the apple mixture on top. You won't taste the crumbs but no leakage, and the crust will be lovely and crisp. Brush the edges with egg wash after folding and sprinkle with turbinado (coarse, raw sugar). Skip the nuts, they add nothing. Oh, I also bake it on parchment. This is so much easier than apple pie and my husband likes it better.

      This is a simple and wonderful recipe. I used golden delicious apples because that's what I had. I sprinkled the bottom of the crust with cornflake crumbs because I didn't have graham cracker crumbs, as suggested in another review. I've made many crostatas, and this addition of the crumbs on the crust is magic. The spices were perfect and the crostata crust stayed nice and crisp. I also skipped the nuts. The outcome was delicious!

      If your not good at making crust, this is the recipe to use! I loved it and so did DH. I served it with some ice cream and the kids were actually quiet for 5 minutes while they were shoveling it in!
