This incredibly simple apple galette bring all the delicious flavor of apple pie with half the work!
I will always appreciate the simplicity of a galette. The perfectly imperfect and easy pies are great vessels for any seasonal fruit (or vegetable!) Can’t get your pie crust perfectly circular? Great. Don’t want to take the time to place the apples in a pattern? Great, just dump them in the center of the pie crust, I promise it tastes just as good. Don’t feel like trimming the edges? Even better. The more rustic, the better.
This summery peach and rosemary galette was one of my favorite recipes from last summer. This year I plan to try blueberry with all the fresh NJ blueberries and some kind of savory version. Stay tuned!
This apple galette is best served while still warm. If you’re feeling adventurous, top with a scoop or two of vanilla bean ice cream and caramel sauce.
