Homemade Apple Galette – A deliciously flaky, buttery pie crust filled with warm, spiced, tender apple slices. The ultimate comforting dessert!
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!
