Apple Galette

A galette is a flat crust of pastry dough filled, in this recipe, with apples and a bit of sugar and cinnamon. I use thawed and flattened frozen pastry crusts just for the ease of having them on hand and basically ready to use. It makes it quicker in the morning!

What you need:

  • 3 Tablespoons Butter
  • 4 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 2 large firm Apples, cored, peeled, sliced 1/8″ thick

Hint:  When you take the pie crust out of the foil plate put the dough on parchment paper on a baking sheet to flatten – then build the galette and bake.

What you do:

1. Preheat oven to 425oF.
2. Roll dough to about a 12″ round and then lightly brush it with softened butter.
3. Mix the sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle half of it over the dough.
4. Next layer the apple slices in an overlapping concentric circle leaving about a 1″ border from the outer edge.apple-galette-picture-step-1
5. Sprinkle remaining sugar mix on the apples.apple-galette-step-2
6. Gently fold the edge over the apples towards the center.apple-galette-step-3

7. Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350oF and bake until pastry is golden brown another 20 to 30 minutes.apple-galette-cooked

8. Brush apples and pastry with remaining butter. Serve warm.
9. Garnish Suggestion: dollop of French Vanilla yogurt, mint, apple slice, a sprinkle of cinnamon.
