Apple Galette

Sur La Table

When you want a rustic apple dessert that leaves you sinking back in your chair, you want this apple galette.  A galette is just a fancy pants name for basically an open-faced pie.  It has a very artisan look that is trendy right now if you’re into that sort of thing.  I’m just into anything that involves cinnamon, apples, and crust, so there’s that.  In this video, I’ll show you how to make this gorgeous gem bursting with apple goodness, a delectable flaky crust kissed with crunchy turbinado sugar and drizzled with preserves to caramelize as it bakes.

You’ll need two 9″ pie crusts and while you can use store bought, this pie crust recipe is super simple and delicious!

Prep Time:
25 minutes
Cook Time:
60 minutes
Total Time:
1 hour, 25 minutes
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, plus more for rolling
  • 2 9-inch refrigerated piecrusts
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons peach, mango or apricot preserves
  • 5 Jonagold or Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced 1/2" thick
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons coarse sugar
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add 5 of your favorite baking apples that have been peeled, cored and sliced to 1/2" thick.
  3. Add the lemon juice, the sugar, the cinnamon and 1 of the 2 tbsp of flour and give the apples a toss. Then add the last of the flour and toss to coat and set aside.
  4. Flour your work surface and lightly flour your cold crust and begin rolling it. (It will need to be large between 15-16” round. You’ll want to have your lined baking sheet ready to go.)
  5. Gently roll the crust over your rolling pin for an easy transfer. Line up the crust and unroll it onto the baking sheet.
  6. Spread 1/4 cup of preserves over the middle part of the crust. Begin layering the apples in the middle over the preserves making sure to leave about 2- 2 1/2” along the sides of the crust so it can be folded.
  7. Begin gently folding in the edges of the pie crust, slightly overlapping over the previous piece as you go.
  8. Add any remaining juices from the apples into two tablespoons of preserves and stir it together. Drizzle it over top of the apples if you want it to caramelize as it bakes or if you prefer you can brush it over the top when it’s done baking.
  9. Brush on the beaten egg over the crust to give a beautiful golden color when baking.
  10. Sprinkle the coarse sugar over the egg brushed crust.
  11. Bake for 55-60 minutes or until the fruit is fork tender. Let it rest for 10 minutes before slicing.

Top with your favorite ice cream. Vanilla or cinnamon are wonderful!
