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:

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

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Line 2 sheet pans with parchment paper.
2
Unfold pastry sheets, and cut each into quarters.
Place the pastry pieces on prepared sheet pans and refrigerate while you prepare apples.
3
Peel 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.
4
Sprinkle each square with sugar (yes it will looks like ALOT).
Dot with butter
5
Bake 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!
6
Beat the jelly with the fluid.
Brush galettes generously with the jelly mixture.
Loosen from the pan and paper.
Allow to cool before serving.
