Raspberry Apple Crostata



I love making crostatas. They are so quick, rustic & scrumptious with nearly any fruit…or try caramelized Vidalia onion and bacon for a savory Virginia style appetizer! 

Lucia deCordre, Timbercliffe Cottage Inn


  • 1 pie crust dough (your favorite recipe), rolled to 12″  rough circle or square 1/4 inch thickness
  • 3 large apples (try a mixture of red and green) with peel on, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 3/4 cup raspberries, fresh or frozen – if frozen, thaw and dry in paper towel
  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbs butter


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Place the rolled out dough on parchment paper and onto a baking stone or sheet
  • Melt the butter and generously brush the dough with about 1 tbsp of the butter
  • Spread oats evenly over the dough, leaving approximately 1.5″ of the outer circle bare
  • In a large bowl, gently stir together the apples, raspberries, cinnamon, honey  and 1 tbsp of the melted butter until coated ( use more butter if desired)
  • Spoon the mixture on the inner portion of the dough (the portion covered with oats)
  • Carefully fold the 1.5″ outer bare portion of the dough over the edge of the apple mixture to hold the fruit in…working your way around the circle/square to create a ‘lip’ to the galette – this will form a “rustic” edge.
  • Brush this outer, folded portion of the Galette with the remaining butter.
  • Bake at 350 for 45-55 minutes or until the dough edges are golden. 
  • Enjoy!
