Galettes are just one of those things... those age-old back pocket recipes that allow you, yes you, to look like an all-star baker when, in reality, you may barely bake at all! That's the beauty of this recipe. It's easy, it's impressive, and it makes great use of those crisp seasonal favorites: Local Roots apples. But don't just take our word for it! Give this recipe a go for yourself and watch the magic unfold.
For the galette dough:
8 Tbsps. cold Local Roots butter
½ cup ice cold water
For the apple caramel filling:
3 green or red Local Roots apples, sliced
1 cup packed brown sugar
4 Tbsps. Local Roots butter
Pinch of salt
For the dough:
1. In a food processor add flour and butter, pulse for a few minutes until the butter is peas size, add in the water slowly (you might not need all of it) and drizzle until dough comes together.
2. On a floured surface add the dough and cover in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for two hours before use.
3. On stove top, melt butter and brown sugar, simmer for 10 minutes, add the apple slices and cook for another 10 minutes.
4. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
5. On a clear floured surface stretch the cold dough into a thin round shape about 18 inches. Add into a greased cast iron or oven safe pan and add the cooked apples, fold in the side of the dough and bake for 45 minutes or until the crust is nice and golden and serve with your favorite ice cream.
