Easier Than Apple Pie

This free-form apple dessert (often referred to as a rustic tart) is super easy because it starts with a refrigerated pie crust. Boost the nutrition and flavor even further by adding 1/4 cup dried cranberries or dried cherries to the fruit mixture.

Ingredients

Servings

  • 1 refrigerated pie crust, (from 14.1-ounce package)
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons McCormick® Ground Cinnamon
  • 4 medium tart apples, such as Granny Smith or Braeburn, thinly sliced (about 4 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Unroll crust. Place on foil-lined 12-inch pizza pan. If necessary, press out any folds or creases. Brush crust with about 1/2 of the beaten egg white.

  • Mix 3/4 cup sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon in medium bowl. Toss with apples. Spoon into center of crust, spreading to within 2 inches of edges. Fold 2-inch edge of crust up over apples, pleating or folding crust as needed. Brush crust with remaining egg white; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sugar.

  • Bake 20 minutes or until apples are tender. Cool slightly before serving.

  • Test Kitchen Tips:

    • Try adding 1/4 cup raisins, dried cranberries or dried cherries to the apple mixture.

    • Prepare as directed, using 1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick® Pumpkin Pie Spice or 1 teaspoon McCormick® Apple Pie Spice in place of the cinnamon.
