Cranberry- Apple Crostata
This is the best apple crostata ever.
The recipe is from Alforno’s Restaurant in Providence R.I.
I changed some of the amounts and cooking time but the taste is the same.
One recipe of the Food Processor Tart Dough
This dough is the best ever and so easy.
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup superfine sugar
8 tablespoon cubed chilled unsalted butter
3 pounds peeled, cored and sliced apples
1 cup cranberries
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
One tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Two tablespoons butter cut into small cubes
To make the crust;
Mix the flour, superfine sugar and butter together until it starts to stick together and you have small clumps. Do this in the food processor.
Roll out the dough to a 12 inch circle.
Place the dough in a pie plate
Mix the apples, lemon juice, cinnamon, sugars and flour together
Fill the dough with the thin apples
Add the cranberries on top
Sprinkle the butter cubes over the apples
Fold the edges of the tart crust over the edges of the apples
Try to pleat the dough so it stays up
This looks so pretty.
Bake on the bottom rack in the oven.
Bake at 400 degrees for at least forty minutes
Make sure the bottom crust is nice and brown.
If the top is burning place a piece of foil on top while the crust is browning.
Serve with slightly melted good vanilla bean ice cream as a sauce.
