Kate's Crostata Recipe

a.k.a galette (one's Italian, one's French. Basically the same dessert.)


Fruit (I've made it with apples, pears, and peaches). About 3 large apples worth.
Pie Crust
Brown Sugar
Spices (I use ginger, cinnamon, and ancho chile pepper.)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Peel and slice the fruit.
Prepare the pie crust. I roll it into a rectangle, but traditionally the crust is round.
Place crust on parchment paper on a baking sheet.
Liberally butter the crust.
Arrange the fruit in a single layer on the pie crust.
Sprinkle brown sugar and spices over the fruit.
Bake for about 17 minutes or until the crust is golden brown on the edges.

I serve it plain, but you might want to add whipped cream.
