FRENCH APPLE GALETTE

This is a fabulous looking and tasting recipe using things usually in every kitchen. Great with a morning cup of coffee, and oh-so-good-looking for company. After baking, each square can be cut again into quarters, leaving a great finger dessert at a potluck dinner. So each .. so good.

Prep:
20 Min
Cook:
40 Min
Method:
Bake

Ingredients

2
sheets puff pastry, thawed
6
apples, good for baking
3/4 c
sugar (I used slightly less)
6 Tbsp
unsalted butter, cold, small diced
3 Tbsp
water, rum, or calvados
3/4 c
apricot or apply jam

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Line 2 sheet pans with parchment paper.

2Unfold pastry sheets, and cut each into quarters.
Place the pastry pieces on prepared sheet pans and refrigerate while you prepare apples.

3Peel the apples, and cut through the stems.
Remove the stems/cores with a melon baller.
Slice the apples crosswise in 1/4" slices.
Place overlapping slides diagonally across each piece of pastry and a slice on each side.

4Sprinkle each square with sugar (yes it will looks like ALOT).
Dot with butter

5Bake for 40 minutes, or until pastry is browned and apple edges start to brown.
Rotate pans once during baking.
If puffs puff-up, poke with a knife to release air.
Juices will brown in the pan .. but galettes are fine!

6Beat the jelly with the fluid.
Brush galettes generously with the jelly mixture.
Loosen from the pan and paper.
Allow to cool before serving.
