Crostata with oven baked apples

January 31st, 2012 Comments Off on Crostata with oven baked apples

for the filling:

  • 10 green apples
  • 50 gr butter
  • 10 T sugar
  • 1 t ground cinnamon
  • 20 dried sultana
  • 3 T walnut
  • Wash the apples. Put hazelnut sized butter cubes(approx.5 gr) to the top of each apple. Add 1 T sugar and cover each apple with aliminium folio.

    Place in a parchment covered baking dish. Bake in 185° C preheated oven for about 1 hour, until the apples are tender.

    Scoop inside and remove the skin. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Add chopped walnut and sultanas. Set aside.

    Keep the caramelized juice for sauce usage.

    For the dough:

  • 2 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • baking powder
  • 200 gr. butter
  • 2 T yogurt
  • cinnamon
  • Combine the flours, cinnamon and room temperature butter in a mixing bowl. Mix them until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add yogurt, eggs and baking powder. Knead well.

    Shape into a ball. Wrap and refrigerate for half an hour for easier rolling. Divide into two balls.

    Roll out one ball pastry and line a greased 23 cm flan tin. Pour the apple mixture on it.

    Take the other chilled ball dough. Dust rolling pin and work surface lightly with flour. Roll dough to a uniform thickness. Roll to a circle almost like your pie tin. Using the plastic strip cutter, form the upper dough and carefully place it on top of apple mixture. If you don’t have a cutter, simply cut the dough into thin strips and place it on apple mixture. With the strips make a cage design. Gently press into form of tin. Make a strip for the edge of the tin.

    Bake at 180° C preheat oven for about 35 minutes, until golden brown.

    For topping:

    Dust icing sugar and serve with caramelized apple juice.
