I was feelin’ fancy and since I am back to my health focus, I figured why not make a fattening dessert that others could enjoy. I decided to use a crust that I needed to do something with and make an apple galette, since I have always wanted to attempt this rustic elegant dessert. This apple galette recipe was so good, I didn’t even sample it before I took it to work for my coworkers to enjoy, for fear that I would eat the entire thing myself. 6 apples, peeled and sliced thin 2 tsp of cinnamon 1 cup of sugar 1 lemon, juiced and zested 1/2 tsp nutmeg 1 tsp of salt 1 egg yolk for brushing the crust turbinado sugar for the crust 4 tbsp of butter, cut in small pieces 2 pie crusts rolled out into 1 Caramel Drizzle 1 cup brown sugar 8 tbsp (1 stick) unsalted butter 1/4 cup whole milk
After slicing the apples, I tossed apples with sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, zest and juice of one lemon
I rolled the crust out and put it on a baking sheet with parchment paper. The recipe that I always go to for any pie is from Martha Stewart, it is flakey and very easy.
After the apples were piled in the center of the rolled out dough, the crust is formed around the apples and the butter was dotted all over the apples.
After the galette was in the 375 deg oven for 15 minutes, I brushed the crust with the beaten egg yoke. Once the crust was completely coated sprinkle turbinado sugar and let the galette continue to bake for an additional 25-35 minutes or until the apples were tender and the crust was golden.
To bring this apple galette recipe to another delicious level, I melted a cup of brown sugar and a stick of butter. Once the sugar was melted into the butter, I added the milk and stirred to combine. When the caramel is at consistency for drizzling take it off of the stove and drizzle on the galette for a beautiful finish.
