Pie is my absolute FAVORITE thing to eat & bake…it’s flaky, buttery, tart, sweet, and the flavor combinations are limitless!

If there’s one thing you’ll notice about me it’s that I’m not the neatest cook/baker.  My food may not always look perfect but it tastes darn good and I think that’s most important.

Which is exactly one of the reasons why I love making crostada: it’s very similar to pie except it’s more rustic and doesn’t have to be perfectly uniformed which (if you can’t tell) is A-OK by me.

Apple & Pumpkin Butter Crostada with Oat Crumble has both fall favorites, apple & pumpkin, baked in a homemade pie dough and topped with a delicious buttery oat crumb topping.  This easy fall dessert is quite impressive.

You’ve never tasted good pie until you’ve made your own pie dough.

Seriously, I’m telling you, there’s a HUGE difference and you’ll be amazed at how easy it is.

Plus, you can make it ahead and freeze it!  Pull it out when you need it for your chicken pot pie, traditional apple pie, blueberry pie, lemon meringue, all the pies!apple pumpkin butter crostada

*To make ahead: make dough and keep in refrigerator for up to 3 days or in freezer for up to 6 months.  Crumb topping can also be made and stored in airtight container for 1 week in refrigerator or 6 months in freezer.
*Make sure to use firm apples such as Granny Smith, Gala or Honey crisp so they don't get mushy or mealy once baked.
