Apple-Ginger Crostata


  • One 14- to 16-ounce sheet of puff pastry, thawed if frozen

  • 2 red apples, such as Honeycrisp or Pink Lady, thinly sliced crosswise and seeded

  • 3 tablespoons sugar

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 2 teaspoons finely grated peeled fresh ginger

  • Pinch of kosher salt

  • 3 tablespoons apricot preserves mixed with 1 teaspoon water


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Unfold the sheet of puff pastry on the prepared baking sheet. In a large bowl, toss the apple slices with the sugar, lemon juice, ginger and salt until well coated. Arrange the slices in slightly overlapping rows on the pastry, leaving a 1/2-inch border all around.

  3. Bake in the center of the oven for about 30 minutes, until the pastry is puffed and golden. Immediately brush the crostata with the apricot preserves. Serve warm.
