Dutch Apple Galette

A galette is a free form pie. It is rustic and organic. Perfect for someone who does not own a pie tray and doesn’t want to purchase a disposable one. This galette is a mash up of a dutch apple pie and a galette. A perfect combo for people who love crumbles and pies. Its easy and looks amazing.

Prepare the filling by peeling and slicing the apples thinly. I like using a mixture of different apples (granny smith and Macintosh are my favourite mix). Place apples in a large mixing bowl.

To the apples, add 3 tablespoons white sugar, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, a pinch of salt, and 2 tablespoons cornstarch. Mix well.

Prepare the puff pastry. Make sure the puff pastry is thawed. I usually place the frozen puff pastry in the fridge overnight and it is ready in the morning. Lay the puff pastry on a cutting board and roll out.

Place the puff pastry on a baking sheet and lay out the apples. Carefully fold the edges of the pastry inward. This will create a rustic pie crust.

In a separate bowl, mix 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 cup white flour, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, a pinch of salt and 6 tablespoons of melted butter. This will form your crumble.

Sprinkle the crumble on top of the pie. Make sure to leave large chunks. This will create a crunchy crumble topping.

Preheat an oven to 425 F. Bake for 25 minutes or until the puff pastry is nice and crispy. You can also lower the temperature to 375 F and bake a little longer. This method will help make sure the bottom crust has risen and baked properly.

Enjoy with ice cream, whipped cream or by itself!
