This was just way too easy. I ran across a frozen sheet of pie dough in the freezer. I don’t usually buy pre-made dough, but for some reason, I had caved and bought a two-pack, then froze the other one. I decided it was time to use it up. I must say, this recipe is one I’ll keep in my back pocket for anytime I need a last-minute dessert.
I didn’t bother with a recipe. I just laid out the crust, peeled a large gala apple and sliced it, then spread the apple slices around the interior of the crust, leaving about a 2″ margin. I then sprinkled the apples with brown sugar (2 tbsp) and cinnamon (1 tsp), and dotted the surface with bits of butter (2 tbsp). I folded the sides up over the apples, then brushed the edges with an egg white. I finished by sprinkling the whole thing with raw sugar. The entire process took about 5 minutes. I didn’t even think to take pictures, as it didn’t seem like anything special.
I baked the galette in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. When it came out, I was amazed at how good it looked, after so little effort. And it was delicious! I must say, this is something I’ll need to explore more, especially with homemade crust. I have a few pears from my farmshare that would be perfect. I’ll post the pear version with more photos as soon as I get it made!
