Apple Galette

Salted Butter Apple Galette - Surprisingly easy to make and extremely delicious!

Apples are nice. Apples thinly sliced and mopped with butter and vanilla bean, lightly crowned with sugar, and snuggled in pastry are heaven. (Can you tell I’m a romantic?) I’m writing while wearing my new favourite accessory – ironically called reading socks. The kind that look hand knit, and extend to your knees. A basic bitch’s favourite fall accessory.

This galette came about because we had a baking date, which later induced a baking coma. Followed by a Netflix binge. Disgusting, right? Or just necessary. My best friend has a habit of introducing me to a compelling series, and then leaving me to crush it. One season, one time, crushed.

  2. DOUGH

  4. In a medium bowl, whisk sugar, salt, and flour together.
  5. Add butter pieces, rubbing in with your fingers until mixture resembles coarse wet sand, with a few pea-size pieces of butter remaining.
  6. Add egg, mixing with a fork just until dough comes together,
  7. Place dough on a lightly floured surface, kneading until smooth.
  8. Form into a disk, wrap in plastic and chill until firm, about 2 hours.

  11. --------------
  12. Preheat oven to 375F.
  13. In a small pan on medium heat, add butter and scrape in vanilla seeds, cooking until butter foams and browns, about 5-8 minutes.
  14. Remove pan from heat, and remove vanilla pod.
  15. Roll out dough on a floured surfaced into a 14x10" rectangle, about ⅛" thick, and transfer to parchment paper.
  16. Arrange apple slices on dough, overlapping, and leaving 1½" border.
  17. Once apples are arranged, brush with brown butter and sprinkle with brown sugar.
  18. Lift edges of dough over the apples, overlapping over the corners.
  19. Once galette is formed, whisk together egg and a teaspoon of water, brushing the dough with egg wash.
  20. Sprinkle with granulated sugar, and bake 40-45 minutes until golden brown,
  21. Let cool, then serve.

I still love her. This time it was Narcos. And it was tastefully paired with a tasting platter of coffee pumpkin pie, glazed pumpkin loaf, and galette. (Hey, if you’re gonna be bad, go hard.)

I prepped the pastry for this one, Olya tirelessly sliced apples, and we did the simple adornment of calories, together. Best friends always get fat together.

After a few hours of work, that Netflix was it’s own reward. The treat of a lightly salted, buttery galette finished off a great day of near mishaps (our pie), and good fun.

Til next time!
