Happy Monday y’all!
The Fall time is one of my most favorite times of the year because of the flavors, and smells that come out of the kitchen. October 16th is World Food Day. In honor of this day, thought I would share a recipe from one of our cookbooks. The apple crostata combines two of my loves, the apple and Italian food. A crostata is an Italian baked tart, or pie also known as coppi in Naples. A crostata is a "rustic free-form version of an open fruit tart" that may also be baked in a pie plate. Historically, it also referred to an "open-faced sandwich or canapé" because of its crusted appearance, or a chewet, a type of meat pie. To get everyone in the holiday spirit, I am sharing this recipe for Apple Crostata. I am referencing The Ultimate Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker Cookbook by Justin Warner (photograph by Robert Bredvad). I have tried this dessert before, and it is wonderful! I hope you will think so too!
Juice of ¼ lemon
4 medium crisp apples, such as Fuji, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
½ cup granulated sugar
¼ cup packed light brown sugar
2 tablespoons instant flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon kosher salt
1 (9-inch) store bought and refrigerated rolled out piecrust
