It’s fall and you go apple picking. Then you come home, and the idea of apple pie SOUNDS great, but you’re tired and hungry. Enter this easy spiced apple galette. Very easy to whip up and will probbbbably give you just as much satisfaction as a pie that would’ve taken 3+ hours.
I never knew about “galettes” until recently, but these things are awesome! It takes all the guesswork out of pie making and the lack of perfection needed is something I definitely get behind.
Spiced apple galettePrint This
- 1 rolled, ready-to-bake pie crust (like Pillsbury or Immaculate)
- 4 small-medium apples, peeled, cored and sliced
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 lemon, juiced
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
- 1 pint vanilla icecream (optional, for serving)
Preheat oven to 400º.
Mix your apple slices with the brown sugar, vanilla, lemon juice, salt, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice mix in a bowl.
Layout the pie crust on a piece of wax paper on a cookie sheet (so that you don’t have to transfer this later) and scoop or lay the apples splices out in the middle. Don’t just pour the apples on there from the bowl because too much juice will get on the pie. Grab them from the bowl and place them in the middle of the pie crust. Top with walnuts if desired.
Pull the edges of the pie crust over the apples, forming a circle.
In a small bowl, beat an egg. Using a pastry brush (or your fingers if you don’t have one), brush the beaten egg on top of the pie crust.
Place in the oven for about 40-45 min, till the crust is golden brown and apples are soft.
