Why do I love apple galette? Let me count the ways. It is easy, it is delicious… those are all the reasons I need!
I opted for an apple galette dessert at a recent dinner party. This meant that I could prepare the galette hours ahead and then pop into the oven just as we were sitting down to dinner. This gave enough time for the galette to cook and come piping hot out of the oven just in time for dessert.
Here is my go-to recipe for apple galette. I recommend taking advantage of it the next time you need a delicious and simple recipe to impress your guests!
1 sheet puff pastry, thawed but cool
2 golden delicious apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
2 tbsp butter, melted
1 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 tbsp granulated sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 large egg, freshly beaten
1 tsp granulate sugar
1 sheet parchment paper
Preheat oven to 375 F
Unroll puff pastry onto parchment paper. Place on baking sheet.
In a mixing bowl, stir together apple, lemon juice, 1 tbsp sugar and cinnamon
Mound apple mixture in centre of pastry, leaving 2-inch border along the edges.
Pull pastry up and over outer edges of apples, leaving apples at centre bare and pleating pastry as you go.
Using pastry brush, brush pastry with beaten egg.
Sprinkle galette with 1 tsp sugar.
Bake in centre of oven for 25-30 minute or until pastry is golden and apples are tender.
Let stand for 5 minutes and serve with my personal favourite, vanilla gelato from Soma Chocolatiers.
