Blue Cheese Crostata


  • 2 pre-made pie dough shells
  • 6 seeded and sliced large red apples
  • juice of ½ lemon
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup of Salemville Gorgonzola crumbles


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°.
  2. Place the pre-made pie dough shells on top of one another and gently roll them out together with a rolling pin until it expands by about 2”-4” more in diameter.
  3. Transfer the rolled-out pie dough to a cookie sheet tray lined with parchment paper.
  4. In a large bowl toss together the apples, lemon juice, sugar, and ground cinnamon until combined.
  5. Place the coated apples right to the center of the rolled-out pie dough into a mound.
  6. Fold the outside of the pie dough to the center to enclose the crostata while still leaving the center part open.
  7. Bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until the apples are softened and the crust is brown.
  8. Garnish with gorgonzola crumbles.
