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!

  • A Halloween colored golden hour and this house was dressed perfectly for the occasion... It’s still heating up here in the south and by the end of these photos my overalls were sticking to my legs so bad that I had to hike them up to get back into the car 😅 Hey fall over here!🙋‍♀️🍂 Anyone else dealing with all this heat still?
  • Happy first of October!!! 🎃 I’ve gone batty decorating the porch... 🦇 I added a few pops of green for a “gourd-gous” scene as my witchy side reminds me, tis near Halloween! Looking forward to starting October off right with all the spooky magic this month brings! Clearly Halloween is one of my fave holidays and I’ve been so ready for it! Have you started decorating yet? I’d love to know what you’re doing for porch decor this year! Also, what do you think of my DIY painted doormat?
  • Every year for as long as I can remember, my family has celebrated the fall season by bringing home a bag of @brachscandy Autumn Mix. #sponsored This year, I thought it might be nice to share the tradition with friends by making them a spooky sweet treat because it's not Halloween without Brach's candy corn. That said, I stopped by @target on my way home to pick some up (plus a bag of Pumpkins for me) and whipped up this super simple Dark Chocolate Candy Corn Bark (recipe below). To add some extra holiday spirit, I placed them in cute goodie bags with a little tag that says "This is for you, Boo!" Can't wait to hand these out and keep the tradition going! Happy Haunting, friends! (1) 12oz. Bag of Dark Chocolate Chunks (melted)
(1) 10-15 of Brach's Candy Corn
Sprinkles of Your Choice
(1) Cookie Sheet Covered with Parchment Paper

After the chocolate has been melted, carefully spread the warm chocolate out on the pan and smooth over into one layer.  Add candy corn/sprinkles and allow to cool in the fridge.  Once cooled, break the chocolate apart into large chunks/shards and disperse as you please.

  • Most of the time my days off consist of me running errands, cleaning and working on stuff for the blog, not to mention, all the other things that come up in life. 
Today, I managed to wake up early and check out the local farmer’s market (they had 🎃 check out my stories if you wanna sneak a peek), catch up with some good friends that I haven’t seen in awhile, and even squeezed in a little DIY project that I’ve been wanting to try for quite some time (also in stories)... This was a rare day indeed, but a really good one and it pains me that I have to remind myself to do more things that bring me joy as it seems like I’m always busy these days. That being said,  I just thought I’d check in with you because I know first hand how easy it is to run yourself ragged. So here it goes, what have you done to feed your soul/bring you joy lately? ✨
