  • 1 ⅓ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 large egg
  • heavy cream as needed
  • 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup unsalted butter cut into big pieces


  • 2 large Granny Smith apples
  • 2 large Honeycrisp apples
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter cut into small pieces
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • sparkling sugar or granulated sugar for sprinkling


Make the Dough:

  • In a food processor fitted with a steel blade, or in a large bowl, pulse or mix together flour, sugar and salt. In a measuring cup, lightly beat the egg, then add just enough cream to get to ⅓ cup.
  • Lightly whisk the egg, cream, maple syrup and cinnamon together. Set aside.
  • Add butter to flour mixture and pulse or use a pastry cutter or your fingers to break up the butter.
  • If using a food processor, do not over-process; you need chickpea-size chunks of butter.
  • Drizzle the egg mixture over the dough and pulse or stir until it just starts to come together but is still mostly large crumbs.
  • Pulse just until dough comes together in a ball.
  • Put dough on large piece of plastic wrap and pat it together to make one uniform piece.
  • Flatten into a disk, wrap in plastic and chill for 2 hours, or up to 3 days.
  • Heat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Roll the dough out to a 12-inch round (it can be ragged along the edges).
  • Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper and chill while preparing the filling.

Make the Filling:

  • Core the apples and slice in half. Slice each half crosswise to ¼ inch thick.
  • Set aside the larger center slices and coarsely chop the end slices and any broken ones; about half of the slices should be chopped.
  • In a small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon.
  • Spread the chopped apples over the pastry to within 1 inch of the edge.
  • Drizzle the maple syrup over the chopped apples.
  • Decoratively arrange the apple slices on top in concentric circles or in slightly overlapping rows.
  • Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar evenly over the apples and dot with the pieces of butter.
  • Fold the pastry edge up and over the apples to create a 1-inch crust border.
  • Brush pastry crust lightly with beaten egg. Sprinkle sparkling sugar on the crust.
  • Bake for 45 minutes or until the crust is golden.
  • Cool for at least 20 minutes on wire rack.
  • Brush the apples with maple syrup just before serving.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature. And with a scoop of ice cream if you’re feeling really adventurous!


  • Prepared dough can be kept in fridge for up to 3 days before baking
  • Store baked galette wrapped tightly in plastic wrap in the fridge for up to 5 days. Warm gently in the microwave or oven at low temp before serving
