Simple Fall Dessert: Apple Galette

This super crispy and flaky Apple Galette is one of my favorite fall recipes! As good as your regular apple pie but so much easier to make. It’s the perfect dessert to make for a fall get together.

Apple Galette Recipe

Galette is the rustic French version of the apple pie, made with French style pastry dough (a bit flaky) and folded over juicy fresh apples mixture with brown sugar and cinnamon.

There is no pie pan required to bake a galette, any baking pan/ sheet will be perfect. No need to worry about the size of it, how perfectly round is and it can be made in mini sizes too.

Today I have decided to make a quick Apple Galette as I had a couple of extra Honey crisp apples on hand. You can choose any filling you prefer: apples, plums, nectarines…you can even go savory. It’s the perfect recipe for so many occasions. You don’t have to worry about making that so perfect looking apple pie anymore.

How to Make an Apple Galette

To make this Apple Galette recipe there are only 3 steps:

  • Making the pastry/crust (if you are short on time, you can always use store bought puff pastry)
  • Preparing the filling
  • Baking the galette

If you want to make your own pastry, just mix flour with cold grated butter and a bit of water. Wrap in plastic the dough and allow to rest in the fridge for 1 hour. That easy!

To serve this Apple Galette, drizzle some salted caramel sauce or chocolate sauce on top and add a scoop of ice cream too, if you prefer.

Apple Galette Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 pack store bought pastry/ puff pastry sheets
  • 3 large apples (Honey crisp or Granny Smith) peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 egg beaten with a bit of water
  • to serve: caramel sauce, chocolate sauce, ice cream

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 400F/ 200C degrees. Line a baking pan with baking paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, add apple slices, brown sugar, vanilla extract and cornstarch and toss together to coat the slices with the mixture. Set aside.
  3. On a flat surface, spread a bit of flour and roll out the pie crust so that is about 1o inches in diameter. Add the crust to the baking pan, on top of the baking paper.
  4. Add the apple slices mixture in the middle of the pie crust and even out into a circle leaving about 1 ½ inches of the crust exposed. Get the edge of the crust over the apples and fold so it goes all the way around the apples.
  5. Brush the top crust with the egg wash. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the apples are cooked through. Allow to cool down before serving.
  6. Serve with drizzled caramel sauce, chocolate sauce, ice cream, etc.
