Recipe by

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. (Recipe originally courtesy of Ina Garten, Food Network)

Ingredients For french apple galette

  • 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

How To Make french apple galette

  • 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.
