If you love pie then you will love galette too. Sometimes called a French tart or a free form pie, a galette is nothing more than a pie without the pressure of making a pretty crust. There’s still a crust but it’s not so fussy, especially if you use store bought frozen puff pastry, which I love! It’s flaky and delicious! Even though it’s not a fancy pie, it is delicious like a pie!
Isn’t it so pretty? It’s easy too!
The complete recipe is at the bottom of the post. After preparing the apples, you work with the puff pastry. There will be 2 sheets in a box. Unroll one thawed sheet onto a lightly floured baking sheet. My favorite brand is Pepperidge Farms.
You’ll need to create a square, so cut the second sheet into thirds.
Use a little water as glue to add one third to one side of the first sheet and add another across the bottom. Where the red lines are is where I added the strips. One strip will be left over. With the left over strip, I roll up a couple of the prepared apples and bake along with the galette. Try to eat that piece while no one’s looking.
Heap the apples onto the center of the puff pastry square and fold over the edges. This is the part I like, it doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s free form.
After baking, you can drizzle the top with a little icing made simply from confectioners sugar and water.
Wasn’t that easy? Isn’t it beautiful? Is it delicious? YES!
Enjoy cold or warm with a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream.
I love this simple recipe!
