Easy Apple Galette
Apple Galette. Sounds so fancy fancy.
But even better than having something fancy on your counter is the aroma of your house during and after baking this.
Baking apples and cinnamon. An aroma that's been candlelized, air-freshenerized and scratchy-stickerized for years.
It's just that delicious.
As is this dessert. Or snack. My family treated it as the ladder recently. I don't blame them, it was cold and dreary, the house smelled like Heaven and we were low on groceries.
Enter warm apple galette, made fresh and ready for their consumption. I actually made this with my daughter as she's really becoming the mini chef in the house! I love it so much. She loves to watch Food Network, read cookbooks and try new recipes every chance she gets. Funny how I knew a little girl who used to be just the same. ;)
So for this week, it was this Apple Galette recipe adapted from Delish.com. Super simple, super quick and super delicious. And bonus, the mess was minimal too!
Can't complain for a icky winter day when your house smells this good, your baking with your baby and the results are bakery-level material.
I wish you nothing but the same......
Easy Apple Galette
Adapted from: Delish
Servings: 6-8 slices
1 store bought pie crust, not a shell- you want the refrigerated rolled up one!
2 apples, peeled and cored. Sliced into 1/8 in slices
3 TBS packed brown sugar
juice of 1/4 lemon
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
pinch Kosher salt
3 TBS milk
2 TBS sugar
Preheat oven to 400 F.
In a large bowl, combine apples, brown sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon and salt. Gently fold until apples are completely coated and mixture is fairly uniform.
Line a medium baking sheet with parchment paper. Unroll dough to form about an 11-12 inch circle.
Arrange apple slices on top of dough, overlapping them as you cover leaving a 1.5-2 inch border around the edge.
Fold the nearest edge towards you, rotate crust and continue to fold over sections until the entire galette has a folded over crust.
Lightly brush the milk over the crust and generously sprinkle with sugar.
Bake until crust is golden and apples are lightly bubbling- about 40-45 minutes.
Remove baking sheet to wire rack and let cool.
Serve warm or room temperature.
