The Galette Takes the Cake!


It's almost too easy to make this delightful, light and flavorful apple galette. And it takes less than an hour, start to finish. Using less sugar and pastry than a traditional apple pie, an added bonus is fewer carbs, with no loss of flavor.

Ingredients

2 Granny Smith Apples
2 T granulated sugar
1/2 t ground cinnamon
Sprinkling of lemon juice
1-2 T butter, cut in small dice
1 refrigerated Pillsbury pie crust 
1 egg and t milk or half and half for egg wash

Process

1. Preheat oven to 425F.
2. Roll out pie crust onto parchment-lined cookie sheet.
3. Core and slice apples super thin and place in circle around crust, leaving about 1" rim on outer edge.

4. Sprinkle with granulated sugar and cinnamon, fresh lemon juice and dot with butter.

5. Brush outer rim of crust with egg wash (1 egg + 1 t milk or half and half, beaten slightly with fork).


6. Fold over outer edges in decorative fashion, and brush with egg wash.


7. Bake @ 425F for 30 minutes. Turn once for even browning, reduce heat to 375F. Bake for 10 minutes. If needed, reduce heat toe 350F and bake for another 10 minutes. Cool on rack.


Serve warm or cool. We love it topped with vanilla bean ice cream!

Bon Appetit!
