avocado goat cheese crostata
ingredients
all
4 oz pie crust
9 inches in diameter
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 tsp salt
4 whole avocados
in this case I used avocados from Mexico
4 oz goat cheese
1 whole egg
1 handful chopped fresh cilantro
cookware
  • rolling pin
  • brush
  • baking dish
1
Thaw the frozen store-bought pie crust per box directions.
2
Preheat oven at 425°F.
3
With a rolling pin, slightly roll the thawed dough on a floured surface, to help create rough edges, which gives the crostata its unique look.
4
Brush the center of the crostata with part of the olive oil and sprinkle a little salt on the bottom.
5
Place filling in the center, arranging avocados first and sprinkling them with the remaining salt.
6
Add goat cheese chunks.
7
Fold the edges in with no particular pattern.
8
Whisk egg and brush the folded side of the crust for a shinny glossy look after baking.
9
Drizzle with olive oil and bake for 15-20 minutes until dough starts to get a golden color.
10
Before serving add some cilantro leaves for a contrast of flavor and finishing touch.
