Apple Galette ~ {Eat Seasonal}

apple galette

We made our inaugural trip to Apple Hill for the season this past weekend. The smoke was thick here in our hometown so we got online and looked for places within driving distance that were experiencing a little more relief from the several fires burning in the northern part of California. Camino {where Apple Hill is located} was in the green so we went in search of relief. Unfortunately, we found that it followed us a bit, but it was nowhere near as bad.

We indulged in apple treats — donuts, fritters, caramel apples — and even brought a bushel home. You just can’t resist stocking up when you visit.

I’m dreaming of my own creations now with these beloved orbs of juicy juice. These apple galettes are a wonderful, sweet treat for an autumn afternoon. Very simple to compose, even the kids can help.

Apple Galette

3-4 large apples, peeled, cored and sliced
3 T. brown sugar (or more, if you like)
1 t. cinnamon
half a lemon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Mix apples with brown sugar, cinnamon, and juice of the half lemon. Let it sit and mingle while you prepare your crust.
For crust:
1 1/2 c. flour (I used all-purpose, but whole wheat would be great too.)
1 T. sugar
1/4 t. salt
8 T. cold, unsalted butter
1/2 c. or so of ice cold water
Place all dry ingredients into a bowl and mix together. Cut butter into dough and mix together with your fingers until chunks are about pea size. Mix water in by the tablespoon, until there is just enough to hold dough together. Try not to overmix. 
Place some flour on your work surface, and roll your dough out to about 12 inches in diameter. Place dough onto a baking sheet by rolling it carefully onto your pin and unrolling it onto the sheet.
Arrange apple mixture onto the middle of the dough, allowing about one inch around the perimeter of the dough for folding. Once you’ve artistically arranged your apples ;), fold and pinch the dough around the apples. 
Cook in the oven for about 45 minutes, until crust is a golden brown. (Check after 30 minutes and place foil on top if apples are beginning to brown.)
