I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned that I love apple deserts of all types, pies, dumplings, turnovers, whatever. I’m also a big fan of the galette. As I say it’s lazy woman pie! It’s quick and easy, but actually has a beautifully rustic effect. Guests have always been both impressed and enjoyed any galette I’ve served. I do galettes a lot in summer because of all the fresh berries and other fruit available. But I really wanted a desert galette for fall/winter, and that’s the apple pie galette. I made my favorite pie dough and filled it with this awesome apple pie filling. The result is a perfect fall desert. I have to admit this one hits all my spots!
By itself it’s not super sweet, but still rich and buttery because of the crust which I like a lot. I actually find that I end up eating it for breakfast a lot since it isn’t so sweet. The apples are just amazing. A little crunch left, not completely mushed out. The cinnamon and other spices just scream fall for me. My husband on the other hand prefers his desserts a little sweeter so for him I added a basic glaze to the top (a few tablespoons of powdered sugar, tiny splash of milk, and a tiny splash of vanilla extract, heated in a small sauce pan over low heat). While I prefer the less sweet version most of the time, this is delicious glazed too. It’s really just a what’s your preference thing. Give it a try if your looking for an easy but impressive desert this fall or just want to be naughty and have some amazing breakfast pastry around the house!Print
