Are you an apple pie fan? Well, today I bring you an easier version – the lazy person’s pie. 😉 I bring you my recipe for Homemade Apple Galette!

A galette is one layer of pie crust wrapped around a filling. Simple, yet impressive, and perfect for when you don’t have time to make a whole pie.

This is the best apple galette recipe I’ve ever made – you are just gonna love it. ♥

First, you’ll want to start off by making my Pie Crust recipe. You only need one crust, so halve the recipe, or freeze the second half. This pie crust is deliciously buttery, and so flaky – it’s my absolute favourite!

Ingredients for Homemade Apple Galette:

  • My homemade pie crust (halve the recipe to make 1 crust)
  • large apples
  • light or dark brown sugar
  • plain/all-purpose flour
  • ground cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg
  • vanilla extract
  • large egg

For the filling, simply peel and slice up 2 – 3 large apples. Add to a mixing bowl, and combine with the sugar, flour, spices, and vanilla. Set the mixture aside whilst you preheat the oven, and roll out the dough.

Once you’ve rolled out the dough, transfer to a baking tray, and arrange the coated apple slices in the centre of the crust. Fold the crust over the filling, sealing any overlaps.

Brush the crust with a little egg wash, then sprinkle with some sugar. Aaaand it’s ready to bake!

The printable recipe card with the FULL list of ingredients and instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.

Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.

Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes

A deliciously flaky, buttery pie crust filled with warm, spiced tender apple slices!

Ingredients

  • Homemade Pie Crust - makes 2 crusts. Halve the recipe or freeze the other half.
  • 2 - 3 large apples, peeled and sliced into 1/4 inch slices
  • 1/4 cup (50g) light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons plain/all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg, beaten with 1 tablespoon milk
  • Granulated sugar, for sprinkling

Instructions

  1. Prepare my pie crust recipe through to step 3.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the apple slices, sugar, flour, spices, and vanilla. Cover tightly and set aside.
  3. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the disc of dough to a 12-inch circle. Transfer to a baking tray lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  5. Arrange the apple slices (discard the juices) in the centre of the dough, leaving a 2 - 3-inch border around them. Fold the edges of the dough over the apples, gently sealing any overlaps. Brush the crust with the egg wash, and sprinkle with sugar.
  6. Bake for 35 - 45 minutes or until the filling is tender and bubbling, and the crust is golden brown. Allow to cool for about 10 minutes on the baking tray before slicing. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Notes

Leftovers can be stored, covered tightly, in the fridge for up to 5 days. Baked galette freezes well for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge. Serve warm.

Both the dough and filling can be made ahead of time, covered tightly and refrigerated for up to 3 days.
