It’s apple season and my husband and I have been craving apple pie so today I decided it was time to get baking!  I love this galette recipe mainly because it takes half the time to make than a traditional apple pie and you don’t have to worry about having a perfectly cut pie crust.  

rustic apple galette

In case you were wondering what apples to use I tend to go for the harder fleshed types like Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, or in this case Fuji.  These are what you would call “baking apples” unlike “juicing apples” baking apples do not break down as easily when cooked and release fewer liquids.  

I began my baking adventure by prepping the apples first and then I moved onto the crust as it does not require you to refrigerate beforehand.  When you’re ready to make the crust, start pre-heating your oven and place a large baking sheet lined with parchment next to your dough station for easy transporting.  You will need to allow the crust to cool in the fridge after the apple mixture has been added.  Allow at least 30 minutes to chill before removing from fridge.  Polish off the galette with egg wash and sugar and bake watching closely as every oven varies.  Have two cooling racks out to place the baking sheet on once the pie crust is golden brown and let rest for 3 hours.  You can find the exact recipe I used below the next time you find yourself hankering for a warm slice of heaven!

  1. In a medium-sized bowl, add lemon juice and peel the skins off the apples with a vegetable peeler. Cut the apples in half from top to bottom and take out seeds with a melon baller.  Cut apples into crescent-shaped slices and add to the bowl giving them a quick toss with the lemon juice as you go.  Once all of the apples have been sliced, prepare them with a mixture of brown sugar and spices.  Drizzle with honey and toss it all together in the bowl.
  2. Set oven to 400 degrees and begin making the pie crust.  In a food processor add flour, salt, and sugar by lightly pulsing.  Add cold butter chunks and pulse 5 to 6 times until the mixture has formed small pea-sized clumps.  Add cold water 1 tablespoon at a time while pulsing in between.  The dough will not come together on its own, but when you smoosh the mixture together it will form.
  3. On a clean non-stick surface sprinkle a little flour down and on your rolling pin.  Dump the pie crust crumble on the surface and begin to smoosh it together until you have its entirety in the shape of a ball.  Place the dough ball in the center of your surface and flatten by patting it into a disk shape.  Roll the dough out in a circular shape and carefully transport it to the baking sheet.
  4. In the middle of the pie crust arrange slices of apples in a circular shape and continue stacking them on top of the other until you form a small round mound.  Bring the pie crust up around the apple slices and fold it into the side like a crease.  Continue to do this until the entire crust has formed a hive with an opening at the top.  Add small chunks of butter to apples and glaze crust with egg white.  Sprinkle granulated sugar on top of the crust and bake for 30-40 minutes or until crust is a golden brown color.  Place sheet on cooling racks and allow to cool up to 3 hours.

*Tip-If you are thinking of serving your galette with homemade vanilla bean ice cream I would recommend making the ice cream ahead of time as it will require 6 hours to freeze.  You can find my vanilla bean ice cream recipe here. 

What’s your favorite thing to make during apple season?  I’d love to hear all about it in the comments!

I hope you enjoyed this post and as always thanks for reading!

  • Lately, I’ve been feeling like I’ve been so disconnected... I’ve been healing and I apologize that I’ve not been as lively over here, but I’ve been dealing with my own dilemmas. I’ve had two accounts of death from cancer just recently. One I kind of set myself up for because I knew there was no cure and another that was totally unexpected... it’s been a rough ride, but I’m still here and I’m happy and thankful that I can be there for others during these hard times. If you are dealing with anything like this feel free to reach out to me. I would love to help support you and always sending love and light your way! .

  • Here is some advice for all my SINGLE LADIES out there! 
Earlier today, I had a discussion with some younger co-workers of mine and I feel like you may relate and probably need to be told this so keep reading! One of the girls stated that she’s never had a good relationship and wanted to meet a nice guy. 
Another girl made a remark about the kind of guys she dated when she was her age and then asked me what kind of relationships I had when I was the other girl’s age and I told them the truth. I dated a very nice guy for 4 1/2 years when I was her age. At one point, I honestly thought that we would marry someday, but I was so young/still trying to figure out who I was and what I wanted my adult life to be like. Eventually we didn’t agree on the same things and grew apart. It ended well and I wish him well. Later after I had a few relationships, that also did not last and it was all for good reason. I feel like I was able to learn something from my past relationships that allowed me to be ready when I was meant to meet my husband which I have been married to for 10 years now. So the next time you look back at those past relationships and you’re looking for a nice guy, just know you’re one relationship closer to meeting the one and when you do you will know it and you will be ready for it! Just know your worth and never lower your standards because you feel like you have to to make it work. Always stay true to yourself because if you’re not, it will not be you they have fallen in love with. Like @arianagrande sings...Thank you, NEXT!

  • Lately, I’ve been reading a ton of wellness articles about the benefits of collagen powder and how women in their 30’s produce less collagen naturally which can start to effect your skin and so on. Ever since I read that. Ive been wanting to give it a try... The one I chose to put to the test is called Gym and Tonic and it’s a collagen protein powder by @tonicproducts 
I started adding 2 scoops into my blueberry banana smoothies in the mornings which has been so great because I’m guilty of never eating breakfast unless it’s brunch or brinner and I’m always rushing to get out the door and to work on time! 
Not only is it free of soy, dairy, gluten, and artificial hormones, but you can also rest assured that their ingredients have all been responsibly sourced. And here’s the bonus, it contains 18 essential amino acids that our bodies cannot produce on their own which combined will help with hair, skin, nail growth, joint pain, and good gut health! Winning!

So glad I finally tried it, and I will def be adding it into my daily routine. 
P.S. I’ve shared a Mango Smoothie Pop recipe in my stories/highlights that this would be perfect in x beating the summer heat with a sweet treat! 😉
