Apple Galette

apple galetteApple time!

Apple galette is a great way to  introduce autumn. In addition to cider, pumpkins, and pie, this recipe is a great addition to your kitchen. Make this dainty dessert for your family or for guests.

Make this apple galette recipe with a tart apple – and you get to choose which tart apple you like best. Granny Smith is an option – but my daughter also used Gala apples for this recipe.

You’ll need to make the crust and give it time to refrigerate. While the dough is in the refrigerator, you can make the filling.  The extra effort to make the crust is well-worth the time it takes. Your family and your guests will be delighted when you serve this apple galette to them.
