Apple Crostata with Oat Crumble Topping

Apple Crostata with Oat Crumble Topping

This recipe is really a cross between a pie and a crostata (“pietata,” anyone?). Whatever you call it, it’s my mom’s hard-captured recipe, worth every bit of the wrestling I had to do to get it down in print!This recipe makes enough dough for two, 9.5-inch pie pans (or crostatas), but the filling is just enough for one. You can freeze the unbaked dough for up to two months.If you don’t want to use a pie pan for this recipe, roll out your dough into a large circle (about 11-12 inches) then place it on a baking sheet. Add the apple filling to the center of the dough, and fold and pleat it all the way around as you would if you were following the instructions below.
