I have never successfully made an apple pie. I can make just about any other kind of pie, but not apple. Isn’t that weird? They always come out watery. But, an apple galette… I’ve got that down. Now, I’m pretty lucky. Our local grocery sells products created by the Texas Pie Company located in Kyle, Texas. So, I just use one of their frozen pie dough pucks to make my galettes and pies. And, that’s what makes this a super simple recipe and 99% fool proof. I hope you try it!
- 1 Texas Pie Co. Pie Dough Puck at room temperature (or your favorite pie dough)
- 4 – 5 apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1/8 inch thick pieces
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 TBS flour
- Pinch sea salt
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp lemon zest
- Egg wash (1 egg , whisked)
- 1 TBS sugar
- Decorative sugar crystals
- Preheat over to 400 degrees.
- Cut a piece of parchment paper the size of your baking pan.
- On a smooth surface, lay out your paper and sprinkle flour on it. Roll out your pie dough into a circle. Dough should be about 1/8 inch thick. Dust off the excess flour. Slide the rolled out dough onto the baking sheet.
- Toss your apples slices with the sugar, flour, sea salt, cinnamon & zest in a large bowl.
- Pile the prepared apples in the center of the dough. Leave at least 2 inches of dough around all sides. Fold the dough up, so it covers at least 2 inches or more of the filling. Sprinkle the 1 TBS of sugar on top of the exposed apples.
- Brush egg wash on the edges of the dough & sprinkle with sugar crystals.
- Loosely tent the top of the galette with a piece of foil.
- Bake for 30 minutes, then turn the oven down to 350 degrees. Bake for an additional 30 minutes. Remove the tent during the last 15 minutes of baking.
- Serve warm with whipped cream, vanilla ice cream or by itself.
