Hello lovelies!! Let me officially welcome you to Fall! With this comes sweaters, scarves, boots, pumpkin spice everything, and of course apples. As Fall gets into full swing and we come to my favorite month, I’d like to wish you all the best and here is a recipe to get you in the spirit!
Rustic Apple Galette (Makes 2) Adapted from Grand Central Bakery
- Refrigerated pie crest thawed as directed
- 2 large honey crisp apples
- 2 bartlett pears
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 egg mixed with ¼ cup water
- ½ stick butter
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place on 10 ½ inch circle of pie dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment. Lay the apples in a circular fashion layering into the middle alternating pear then apple. Leave a 1-1/2” border. Combine the brown and white sugars as well as the cinnamon in a bowl.
Melt ½ stick of butter and brush over the apples and pears. Sprinkle the sugar mixture evenly over the fruit. Lift and fold up the pastry border, letting the dough pleat each time you fold. Chill the galette in the fridge for 20min. Lightly brush the pastry border with the egg mixture.
Bake in the oven for 20min. Reduce the heat to 350 degrees rotate the baking sheet and bake for an additional 20-30 min or until the pastry is golden brown and the fruit is tender. I could not keep my hands off of this. Served with some vanilla ice cream and maybe a little caramel sauce and fall is underway.
