apple galette

Autumn is here and with it lots of apples everywhere.

The galette is the perfect alternative when you don't feel like spending a lot of time, but you really want to eat something sweet.

Have you ever done one before? They are very simple, delicious and you can make them from almost any fruit.

You don't have to worry about a perfect shape, just fold the dough over the filling a little and you'll have your galette. 

It's as delicious as pie, but it'll take half the time and half the work! And if you are in a hurry, you can always replace this rich dough with a prepared shortcrust pastry. Also, in case you don't have a baking tray, today I'll prepare it for you in a saucepan so you can see that they are used for much more than just cooking.

Ingredients:

For the mass:

  • 190 g of flour, plus a little more for the work surface
  • 50g granulated sugar
  • A pinch of salt
  • 115g cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • 60 ml of very cold water

For the filling:

  • 2 - 3 large apples, peeled and sliced
  • 50g brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon and a half of flour
  • 2 teaspoons of lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

To end:

  • some caramel sauce
  • A handful of chopped almonds
  • some vanilla ice cream

Preparation:

  1. To make the dough mix the flour, sugar and salt in a medium bowl. Add the butter and using two knives, cut the butter until the mixture resembles coarse sand.
  2. Add the water and form a ball. If it's too sticky, add a little more flour and if it's too dry add a tablespoon more water.
  3. Knead a couple of times on the work surface and form a ball. Crush it into a thick disc and wrap it in plastic wrap. Let stand one hour in the fridge.
  4. Meanwhile mix the apples, brown sugar, flour, lemon juice, and cinnamon in a large bowl.
  5. Cover well and let rest until the dough is ready.
  6. Preheat the oven to 190 °C and on a lightly floured work surface, roll out the dough with the help of a rolling pin and place it on the low Bra pan .
  7. Put the apples in the center of the dough, leaving a 2-3 cm border around it. Gently fold the edges of the dough over the apples.
  8. Gently press to seal the edges. Brush the edges of the crust with egg wash and sprinkle all over with walnuts, if using.
  9. Bake until filling is bubbly and crust is golden brown, about 30-35 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
  10. Serve with caramel sauce and some ice cream.

Me gustan mucho las recetas que publican, pero en esta ocasión, tengo que decir, con todo mi respeto, que las gallettes, se hacen con harina de trigo sarraceno, ustedes aquí lo que han hecho es una especie de crêpe….
