Crostata: Your Smart Sweet Snack

Crostata: Your Smart Sweet Snack

Hailed from Italy, Crostata is a crusty pastry that anyone would enjoy. It’s effortless to make and preferable when serving a huge crowd. You will only need crust and a good filling.

crostata

What’s also nice about this pie is that it’s versatile. You can choose whether it can be bite sized or huge. And you can also experiment with the fillings. It can be sweet from fruits fillings or it can be savory from meat or vegetables. Either way, it’s still delish!

Crostata2

How easy it is to make Crostata? You will only do 4 simple steps! Know how to make this heavenly pie in a jiffy. This recipe works if you’re planning to host a large Holiday party. Kelli and Merri Ann of The Prepared Pantry used this recipe to serve a huge crowd and it turned out to be a great hit!

Step 1.  Add the water and Mix the dough

Follow the directions on the bag.  Add water and mix for one minute.

Step 2. Roll and cut the dough

Roll the dough to 1/4 inch thick and cut six inch rounds.

Step 3. Add the filling and fold

Put three tablespoons of filling* in the center of each round.  Fold the dough over the filling and pinch the side folds together so that it holds its shape.

Step 4. Bake

Bake for 15 minutes at 425 degrees until lightly browned.

Take note that for the filling, you can use the canned fillings to save more time.

Isn’t it exciting? Lastly, it’s a must for you to know how to make the original Crostata recipe.

What you’ll be needing..

  • 3 tablespoons apple pie filling for each crostata
  • Pie dough
  • Caramel topping

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

  1. Roll the dough to slightly less than 1/4-inch thick.
  2. Using a dough press or other round cutter, cut out 6-inch rounds
  3. Place three tablespoons of apple filling in the center of each round.
  4. Fold the dough over the filling, leaving the center open one inch or so, squeezing the folds together as you go. It does not need to be uniform. The folds will hold together better if you rub a damp towel over the creases to pick up any flour so that the dough sticks together better.
  5. Place each dessert on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes or until the crust begins to brown. Remove them to a rack while still hot.
  6. Serve warm.

If you choose to make these with fresh apples, for each four crostatas use:

  • 2 cups thinly sliced and peeled tart apples
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pie dough
  • Caramel topping

Bake until the crust is browned and the apples are tender.  It will probably take a few minutes longer with the raw apples.

How to Make a Caramel Sauce

  • 1 lb brown sugar
  • 1 cup (two sticks) butter
  • 1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon butterscotch flavor
  1. Melt the butter in a heavy saucepan. Add the sweetened condensed milk and syrup. When the mixture is hot, add the sugar and salt and stir with wooden spoon until the sugar is dissolved.
  2. Wash the sides of the pan down with a soft spatula dipped in water until there is none of the mixture on the sides of the pan. This is to ensure that all of the sugar crystals are washed into the pan and dissolved. Check to make sure that there are no remaining sugar crystals by rubbing a little of the mixture between your thumb and forefinger. You should feel no gritty sugar.
  3. With no sugar crystals in your pan, turn up the heat and cook the mixture while stirring until the candy reaches 240 degrees as registered on a candy thermometer. Remove it from the heat and stir in the flavor.
  4. Best served while warm.

Bridal Shower Planning 101: Do’s and Don’ts

Bridal Shower Planning 101: Do’s and Don’ts

Your friend just said YES! She has the RING! Yes- she’s getting married! You can be her lucky sister, her pal, or her best friend. Whoever you may be in her life, you can surely make her next days extra special and less demanding. How? You can take the lead in hosting her once- of- a lifetime bridal shower party! We list for you the Do’s and Don’ts for planning that special bridal shower.

THEME

DO: Think Like You’re The Bride

  • Bridal shower 101’s most basic fact is simple. The party is for the bride and everything should revolve around her. Be creative. Planning the party doesn’t need to be expensive. Take into consideration her likes and dislikes, her personal style and interest and we’re sure you’ll come up with a great idea.

DON’T: Think You Are By Yourself

  • What makes party planning a stress? Under delegation! Learn from others’ mistake and stop thinking that you are alone! Invite your shared group of friends, fellow bridesmaids or co- workers to take some responsibility. We are sure they’ll be happy to help.

INVITATION

DO: Carefully Plan the Guest List

  • Determine first hand if the party will be a traditional or non- conventional. Will it be all girls or co-ed? Here’s the ultimate rule: Only guests invited to the wedding should be attending the bridal shower. The only exception: showers set by officemates. It’s not always possible to invite ALL work colleagues to a wedding.  And another extra rule: although it’s proper etiquette to invite bridesmaids to every bridal bash, they are expected to attend only one.

DON’T: E-vites and Electronics

  • Although it’s easy and much cheaper to send electronic invites, it’s not too ideal for memory purposes. Remember that you are doing this so that the bride can have something she can treasure for a lifetime. There’s a wide variety for a less expensive invites. Try making them more personal by making it yourself with the help of your friends.

DATE and PLACE

DO: Tradition says at home but it can be anywhere memorable.

  • The Bridal shower is usually held 2-8 weeks before the wedding. Confirm the date with the bride. Just make sure though that you mail invitations out at least 3 weeks from the party date. Traditionally, it’s held at the host’s home but there are other suitable alternatives. Consult with the bride if she and her fiancé has a special place for them as a couple so that you can use it to make the party more memorable.

DON’T: Make it hard for you and your guests.

  • Although having the party at a more unforgettable place rather than your home is an appealing idea, you need to consider the comfort and safety of your location. Horse- racing tracks, museums, parks, or bowling alleys could be the bride’s favourite place, but it might not be too convenient for you and your guests.

 GAMES AND FAVORS

DO: Personalize it and stick to the theme.

  • Since it’s a bridal shower party, make everything about the bride. Games and favors are no exceptions. Make it personal about her! It’s an intimate gathering of people close to her heart, so revealing some truth about her would not hurt!

DON’T: Exaggerate.

  • Don’t spend much time on the games part. Keep it to at least 2-3 games. Make sure it has meaning to the couple and offers absolute fun for everyone! For the favors, tag price does not necessarily guarantee satisfaction. A couple’s photo with their personal message on it would do! Sprinkle some frame glitter and it’s good to go!

You already now have a background on planning a bridal shower. Let us help you more by suggesting ideas and concepts for your soon to be party. We have below two ideas you can choose from.
