After a wonderful vacation in the North Carolina mountains, I am finally back and able to post. The bounty of apples and pumpkins made my heart go pitter- patter. Seriously, who doesn't like to cozy up next to the warm fire while the smell of apples and cinnamon drift through the air? Oh yea...
For a beautiful, yet simple, dessert or snack, an apple galette is the way to go. A galette is just a free- form pie with the center piled with some fresh fruit. Therefore, with bags of apples in my pantry and a pre-made roll of pastry dough in the refrigerator, I set out to make my first ever galette.
I won't include a recipe because it is just as easy to explain the process right here. I thinly sliced approximately 3 apples (whatever variety you have on hand). In a bowl, I coated the apples with 2-3 tablespoons of sugar, 2-3 teaspoons of cinnamon/nutmeg and tossed it all together. Rolling out the dough, I arranged the apples in a rose pattern and folded the outside dough around the fruit. Lastly, bake the galette on 350 degrees till golden. See, incredibly simple to recreate!
Oh, how I love this weather
