Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon warm water
  • 1 roll pre-made pie dough
  • 1 can (16 ounces/453g)) prepared apple pie filling
  • Granulated sugar, as desired


  • Small Bowl
  • Rolling Pin
  • Step 1

    Install SearPlate in the bottom level of the unit, then close the door. Select RAPID BAKE, set temperature to 350°F, and set time to 35 minutes. Press the setting dial to begin preheating.

  • Step 2

    In a small bowl, add the egg and lightly whisk with 1 tablespoon water to create an egg wash.

  • Step 3

    Prepare the crostata by unrolling the pie dough on a clean work surface. With fingers or a pastry brush, coat the pie dough with the egg wash.

  • Step 4

    Add the filling to the center of the dough, leaving a 2-inch rim around the perimeter free of filling. Fold the edges of the dough up and over the filling 6 times, leaving the center open.

  • Step 5

    With fingers or a pastry brush, lightly sprinkle the outer rim of the crostata with sugar.

  • Step 6

    When unit has preheated, open door and use oven mitts to remove SearPlate and place it on top of the oven. With a large spatula, place the crostata in the center of the SearPlate, then reinstall the SearPlate in the bottom level of the unit. Close the door to begin cooking.

  • Step 7

    When baking is complete, carefully remove SearPlate and place on top of oven. Allow the crostata to cool for 5 to 10 minutes and serve warm.
