1/2 package Katz All-Purpose Gluten Free Dough
1 cup whole berry cranberry sauce (from a can or fresh)
2 tart apples (e.g. Granny Smith)
1/3 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine, divided
1. Preheat oven to 400F degrees.
2. Form dough into a ball and flatten on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Roll into a circle about 1/4-inch thick. Spread cranberry sauce over dough, leaving a 2-inch margin all around.
3. Peel, core, and thinly slice apples. Arrange in a spiral pattern on top of cranberries. Combine nuts and brown sugar in a small bowl. Sprinkle on top of apples. Dot with 3 tablespoons of butter or margarine cut in small pieces. Fold edges of dough up and over apples.
4. Melt remaining butter or margarine, and brush on dough.
5. Bake for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 350F and bake for 25-30 minutes, until crust is golden and apples are tender. Cool for 10 minutes. Slice into wedges and serve warm or at room temperature.
