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.

  • 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



  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.
