finished Apple Galette on doilyThis is my mother's recipe for delicious apple galette that really suits the welcoming of the Autumn season. I love the flaky crust on the outside, with an inside that becomes almost custardy from the juices of the baked apples. It's so easy to make, it's a beginner's recipe, but the taste will have people thinking otherwise. Give it a try!

  • 2 Tbsp heavy cream mixed with 1 Tbsp water (or 3 Tbsp milk)


  1. Cut cold butter into small pieces, then cut into flour until it's sand-like in texture.
  2. cutting butter into flour
