apple galette

Apple galette is a rustic and elegant dessert that showcases the natural beauty and flavors of fresh apples. It is a free-form tart with a buttery and flaky pastry crust enveloping a generous filling of thinly sliced apples.

The pastry crust of the galette is made with a simple combination of flour, butter, sugar, and a pinch of salt. The dough is rolled out into a rough circle, allowing for a charmingly irregular shape that adds to the galette’s rustic appeal. The edges of the crust are then folded up and pleated around the filling, creating a rustic and slightly crimped appearance.

For the filling, tart and crisp apples, such as Granny Smith or Honeycrisp, are thinly sliced and layered on the pastry crust. The apples are typically tossed with sugar, a squeeze of lemon juice, and warm spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, which infuse the filling with delightful flavors and aromas. The apples soften and caramelize as they bake, creating a tender and juicy filling that pairs beautifully with the buttery crust.

The crust becomes wonderfully crisp and flaky, contrasting the tender and sweet apple filling. Each slice reveals layers of perfectly cooked apples, their flavors concentrated and mingled with the subtle sweetness of the crust.

Apple galette is often served warm or at room temperature, making it a versatile dessert suitable for any occasion. It can be enjoyed on its own, but it’s also commonly served with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream, adding a creamy and indulgent element to the dessert.
