Now, don’t let the word Galette scare you….it is a French word that simply means…various types of flat, round or freeform crusty cakes. This beautiful apple dessert couldn’t be easier and boy is it pretty.

I LOVE the fall flavors of apples and cinnamon then toss on some chocolate and caramel…..I think I’ve died and gone to heaven :) Hope you will all enjoy this simple yet completely impressive and scrumptious “freeform” little pie.

Ingredients

3 Tbsp
butter
2
apples (choice peeled and diced)
3 Tbsp
brown sugar, light
1 tsp
ground cinnamon
1
rolls (pillsbury pie dough)
5
caramels (rolo chocolate, unwrapped and quartered)
powdered sugar (for dusting)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Dice 2 nice apples
2
Brown a few Tablespoons of butter and throw in your diced apples, brown sugar and cinnamon.
3
Pour onto center of rolled pie dough
4
quarter a handful of Rolo’s

6
Now the fun part….folding your dough edges. Don’t worry too much about this part. Do the best you can, it even looks good when it’s not perfect :) You basically pick up a piece of dough and fold it over. Do this around the entire circle of dough.
7
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place butter into a medium saucepan over medium heat. When melted add diced apples, brown sugar and cinnamon. Cook and stir for 5 minutes or until softened.
8
Roll out pie dough then pour cooked apples in center of dough leaving a 1 1/2 inch border around edges. Top with quartered Rolo’s then take edges of pie dough and fold over to create a pleated edge.
9
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until pie edges are golden brown. Remove and let cool completely. Before serving dust with powdered sugar.
