Moist, Delicious and Easy Apple Gallette
I had a serious craving for an apple filled sweet indulgence the other day (yep, that is kind of continuous thing). My Mr was not against a good apple pie either, so I pulled out this recipe and put it on the table (yes, it was really that easy!).
for the dough
1 cup flour (I used a 75/25% mix of white and whole wheat)
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
6 tbsp cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
chilled water, as needed (I used about 4 tbsp)
for the filling
2 medium apples peeled, cored and sliced
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup sugar (more or less depending on how tart your apples are)
For the dough, sift flour in a large bowl. Mix in sugar and salt. Cut in butter, working quickly, to prevent it from completely melting. Continue until the biggest pieces of butter are roughly the size of large peas. Add chilled water a tablespoon at a time until the dough just holds together. Gather dough into a disc, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill for at least 30 minutes.
When the dough is ready, roll out on a floured surface or on plastic wrap to a circle about 1/8″ (about 0.3cm) thick. Transfer to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F.
For the filling, place apple slices in a bowl with melted butter and sugar. Toss to coat. Overlap the apples in a circle 2″(about 5cm) from the edge of the dough. Continue spiraling inward until you’ve reached the center (or just pour it all in the middle – ha!) Fold over the edges of the dough, and sprinkle dough edge with sugar if desired.
Bake on middle rack of oven for 45 minutes, or until golden brown.
I have made this gallette 2 times that week, it was so incredibly delicious!!
