Ingredients

Scale

FOR THE SHORTCRUST:

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • a generous pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter (1 stick), cut into tiny cubes
  • 3 tablespoons ice cold water

FOR THE FILLING:

  • 3 medium apples, peeled (see note)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 heaping teaspoon of flour or cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cubed
  • 1 tablespoon turbinado (any coarse sugar, or even granulated sugar will work)

Instructions

  1. In a food processor, pulse the flour, sugar and salt.
  2. Add in the cubed butter. Pulse until the mixture looks like wet sand.
  3. Add in the ice cold water. Pulse until a rough dough forms (this will happen quickly).
  4. Remove the dough and form a ball. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, or up to two days.
  5. While the dough is resting in the fridge, peel the apples and shred them using the larger shred on a box grater. Add the shredded apples to a bowl with the lemon juice.
  6. Once all of the apples have been shredded, squeeze out as much liquid as you can.
  7. Place back into the bowl with the salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, vanilla and flour.
  8. Mix to fully coat the shredded apples.
  9. Preheat oven to 375°.
  10. Remove the dough from the fridge and roll out onto a floured surface, or piece of floured parchment paper. Try to create a 12″-14″ round. 
  11. If not rolling onto parchment, place the dough onto a piece of parchment paper then place on a baking sheet. 
  12. Spoon on the shredded apple filling evenly, leaving about a 2″ border from the edge of the dough. 
  13. Folder over the edges of the dough toward the center. 
  14. Dot the filling with the cold, cubed butter.
  15. Brush the outside edges of the dough with an egg wash.
  16. Sprinkle the edges with sugar (I used turbinado sugar).
  17. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.
  18. Allow the apple galette to cool slightly before cutting.
  19. Serve topped with ice cream or whipped topping.
  20. ENJOY!

Notes

  • choose firm apples (Granny Smith and/or Honeycrisp)
  • use the larger shred on a box grater to shred the apples
  • a small amount of lemon juice mixed with the apples provides not only another level of flavor, but keeps the apples from browning too fast
  • squeeze out as much liquid from the apples to ensure the crust does not become soggy
  • if dough seems to dry, add a touch more ice cold water (no more than a tablespoon)
  • place dough in fridge to rest for at least 30 minutes, or up to 2 days
  • leave an edge after filling the dough to allow for folding
  • this galette is meant to look rustic…don’t worry about rough edges
  • add a few dots of butter to the filling prior to baking
  • use an egg wash on the outer edge of the exposed dough to create a golden crust
  • cool slightly before serving
