With its spiced apple filling, crisp crust and salted caramel drizzle this gloriously messy dessert just screams fall!
For the dough
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 8 tablespoons very cold butter, cut into small pieces
- 1/4 cup cold water
For the galette
- 3 cups thinly sliced apples (I prefer gala apples)
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmet
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
- squeeze of fresh lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons butter, but into small pieces
- 1 large egg, lighly beaten
- 1 tablespoon water
- 3 tablespoons salted caramel sauce
- Preheat the oven to 400°F.
- Make the dough. Add the flour, sugar and salt to a food processer fitted with a standard blade. Pulse 2-3 times. Add the butter and pulse again 5-6 times until a small meal forms. With the motor running slowly add the water and process until a ball forms.
- Chill the dough. Remove the dough from the food processor and press into a thick round, about 1 1/2 inches thick, with the palm of your hand. Cover and chill for about 30 minutes.
- Make the apple filling. While the dough is chilling Combine the sliced apples, flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and lemon juice in a large mixing bowl. Stir until the apple slices are thoroughly coated.
- Roll the dough. Place the chilled dough on a large piece of parchment paper (just slightly smaller than your baking sheet). Roll the dough out into a somewhat circular shape until the dough is about 1/4 inch thick. Transfer the rolled dough to the baking sheet.
- Assemble the galette. Arrange the apple mixure in the center of the dough, leaving a boarder about 3 inches wide. Fold the edges over the apple mixture, pleating as needed. Combine the egg and water in a small bowl and brush the folded edges of the galette with the egg wash.
- Bake the galette. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Remove from oven and cool for about 5 minutes. Drizzle with caramel sauce and serve.
