Apple Galette

on November 10, 2017

Today’s recipe is for Apple Galette. I had to try this so-called simple dessert that you see all over the internet, Pinterest, and Instagram right now. What I found was that it IS easy, fast, and absolutely delicious. It’s fancy enough for company and casual enough for a weeknight dessert. You could even whip one up for your Saturday afternoon coffee. The smell of the apples and cinnamon baking fill the house with – you know – that smell – so warm and homey and comforting. You HAVE to try this. Grandma would have LOVED this – even though she was a stickler for a good pie crust. This uses a pie crust, just not in the usual formal way.

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Apple Galette

Crust:

Make a single pie crust and roll it out into a circle as big as you can make it.

Put crust onto baking sheet.

Filling:

Peel, core, and slice 4 baking apples.

Pile slices in middle of pie crust.

Sprinkle on:

1/4-1/2 cup sugar, depending on how sweet your apples are

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 Tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces

Fold edges of pie crust up over edge of apple slices.

Brush crust with beaten egg and sprinkle with sugar.

Bake at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes, or until the apples are tender and the crust is brown.

Due to technical difficulties (I’m not back to speed yet on all of this after the surgery!), these photos were taken with my phone.

You can see how golden brown the crust gets when you use the egg wash. You can use a sprinkling of regular sugar, but I used a sanding sugar, which is a little coarser.

Oh wow. This smelled so good when it was baking, and it’s so beautiful. Add a little whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream – heaven! This could almost replace an apple pie on your Thanksgiving dessert table! It’s so easy to do, and it’s so delicious! Try this Apple Galette – you and your guests will LOVE it!
