Apple Cheddar Crostata

  • Author: URBAN BAKES
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 10 inch crostada 1x


A crostata so buttery rich, savory and tart it will have you wanting more than one slice. 


Units Scale


  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 34 tablespoons cold buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon coarse sugar


  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 34 medium baking apples, sliced
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons shredded sharp cheddar cheese


  1. In medium bowl, whisk flour and 2 tablespoons of sugar. Using a pastry blender or long-tined fork cut in butter until the mixture becomes crumbly about the size of small peas. Add buttermilk 1 tablespoon at a time and combine dough until the mixture leaves the sides of the bowl.
  2. Form pastry dough into a ball and flatten into a disk shape on a floured surface. Cover with cling wrap and cool in fridge for 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in another small bowl, whisk 1/2 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour, lemon juice, cinnamon and nutmeg until just combined.  Toss apples in and ensure each slice is coated.
  4. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly flour a baking sheet; set aside.
  5. On a clean floured surface use a floured rolling pin to roll out the cooled pie dough into a circle about 12 inches in diameter.  Note: Use a large inverted plate or bowl to achieve a perfect round circle. Transfer crust onto the baking sheet.
  6. Sprinkle 1/2 cup cheese onto the center of the crust. Arrange apple slices facing the same direction above cheese.
  7. Fold crust upward and onto the sides of the apples creating pleats about every 1 1/2 inches. Using a pastry brush, brush milk on the sides of the crust and sprinkle coarse sugar.
  8. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of cheese above crostata while still hot. Allow to cool for 5 minutes. Best served warm. ENJOY!
