Maple  Apple Galette

WHAT IS A GALETTE? Galettes are wonderful in that they seem fancy and sophisticated, however they're much easier than pie to put together. A galette is a rustic, free-form pie or tart made with a single crust of pastry. It usually has a filling and the sides folded over.

CRUST All-purpose flour Sugar Salt Egg Heavy cream  Pure maple syrup Ground cinnamon Unsalted butter

FILLING Granny Smith apples Honeycrisp apples Granulated sugar Ground cinnamon Pure maple syrup Unsalted butter  Egg beaten Sparkling sugar

Prepare the crust by pulsing the ingredients together in a food processor. When the dough comes together in a ball, wrap it in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Roll out the dough into a 12-inch round. Slice half the apples and chop the remainder. Spread the chopped apples onto the prepared dough.

Drizzle the maple syrup over top of the chopped apples.

Arrange the sliced apples in concentric circles or overlapping rows on top of the chopped apples.

Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture.

Dot the filling with small pieces of butter and fold the dough up and over the filling to create a 1-inch crust.

Bake and allow to cool for at least 20 minutes. Enjoy with a scoop of ice cream!

RECIPE TIP Be sure to allow your crust to rest and chill in the fridge for at least an hour before you roll it out. This allow the butter to chill and helps create those nice flaky layers when baked.
