Quick Apple Galette

apple galette (640x424)If you are someone who loves the smell of apples baking and the taste of homemade apple pie, here is a very easy recipe for a rustic apple galette.

Easy Apple Galette

1 circle of refrigerated pie crust, room temperature

2 large baking apples (I like Golden Delicious but choose your favorite variety)

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 tablespoon butter

1 tablespoon cream

1 tablespoon coarse sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy clean-up or spray with non-stick spray. Unroll pastry into a full circle. Set aside as you prepare the filling.
  2. Slice the peeled, cored apples in half, then slice evenly into thin 1/8 inch slices.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl, mix the apple slices with the granulated and brown sugars, flour, salt, lemon juice and cinnamon until the apple slices are evenly coated in the sugar mixture.
  4. Spoon all of the apple filling into the middle of the pie crust, leaving about two inches of space around the edge of the circle.
  5. Carefully fold the edges of the crust over (it will cover 2-3 inches of the apple filling). You will have some overlap of the crust as you fold, so just pinch together. Try not to tear a hole in the crust where the filling could leak out.
  6. Brush the outside of the crust with cream, then sprinkle with the coarse sugar over the crust. Dot with the butter.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes, until the crust is golden brown and the apple slices are tender.
