First, if you are a pastry snob, run away now. I accept my limitations,the main one being mostly my limited time, and there was no way I was making real puff pasty.
Perhaps one day. When I have a moment or two.
Like when my children leave this magpie’s nest. That’s a long time a’ comin’.
The reason that this is called Easy Apple Galette recipe because you use pre-made puff pastry.
Ever see the commercial with the sarcastic mom talking about making Artisan bread? Yah, that’s me with puff pastry at this point in my life.
1 10×10 sheet of puff pastry
2 apples, peeled and sliced thinly
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp ginger
1 tbsp cornstarch
2 tbsp melted butter
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp white sugar
1 beaten egg to brush on outside
Kick the tires and light the fires to 375 degrees.
Slice those apples up!
Combine the melted butter and dry ingredients, then pour over the apples in a bowl. Make sure they are all evenly covered, then place in the middle of the pastry sheet. Fold the edges together like the picture below, making sure they stick.
The beauty of galettes is that they are supposed to be a rustic looking pastry, that is what makes them so fast! Uneven edges, not perfectly circular, these are all ok.
If you would like a lovely super, crispy browned pastry, brush the beaten egg over the pastry.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until the pastry is beautifully browned like this. Let it sit for 5 minutes, then serve.
They are just so darn pretty looking, easy and perfect for company. Served with vanilla ice cream, they are a dessert made in heaven.
Just in time for those fall apples!
