  5. Peel and slice the apples, placing the slices on the Ricciarelli-covered dough.
  6. Cover with a lid of dough and bake at 180°C for 30 minutes.

Dish history

This is somehow a modern version of the famous, classic apple pie. The crumbled Ricciarelli biscuits at its base give it a delicious almond flavour and a different, captivating texture. Ideal at breakfast time, as a dessert or at tea time, this 'crostata' will satisfy your sweet tooth with its natural delights!
