Apple Galette

So here’s my take on an Apple Galette. This traditional french pastry is basically an open-faced apple pie. Normally they are much prettier than mine but here’s my easy go to recipe that’s super yummy. Oh and I kind of made it up so the measurements aren’t exact.


  • 1 Trader Joes frozen dough (much easier than making your own and it has such good flavor)
  • 3 Granny Smith apples
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon of powdered sugar
  • 2 handfuls of flour (probably 1/2 – 3/4 cups worth)
  • 2 tablespoons of ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar


* Preheat your oven to 375
* Defrost your Trader Joe’s pie dough

  1. You can peel your Granny Smith applies before slicing them but in my case I didn’t because I like the way it taste. Cut your apple in wedges and then slice the wedges so you have thin pieces. I have one of those apple slicers that gives you 8 perfect wedges.  I then sliced each wedge into three slices.
  2. In a bowl put all your apple wedges, powdered sugar, flour, ground cinnamon, most of your granulated sugar (leaving 2 tablespoons for later) and juice from your 1 lemon.  Mix everything together so the apples are well coated.  Let this mixture sit for 30 minutes.
  3. Unroll your Trader Joe’s pie dough into a pie tin and mold it into the dish. Make sure to press any tears as the dough usually doesn’t stay perfectly together when you unroll it.
  4. Pour your mixture into the pie tin or you can place the apples in the pie tin in an elegant fashion like a classic Apple Galette.
  5. Sprinkle remaining sugar on top of your creation and place your Apple Galette in your preheated oven. Cook for 25 minute or until your apples are tender and your crust is brown.
  6. Serve at warm or at room temperature and ENJOY!
