An apple galette recipe like this is basically just a rustic apple tart recipe. Made with pastry dough, fresh apples, a pinch of spices, and some sugar, you’ve got an easy apple tart recipe that you can whip up any time you want.
When making this dessert, you have a few different options for the pastry component. You can make an apple galette with puff pastry, or you can make the pastry component from scratch. You can also make an apple galette with a pre-made pie crust, which will produce a galette that’s more flaky than buttery like puff pastry. Any of these pastry options, however, will yield a beautiful base for this rustic apple galette.
You also have a lot of options when it comes to the type of apples you can use for the filling. We love using a mix of Fuji apples and Granny Smith apples for a sweet and tart twist. To make this apple galette recipe even more aromatic and tantalizing, you’ll want to add in a little bit of cinnamon and orange zest to the filling as well.
This easy apple galette recipe can be a substitute for a classic pie or just served any night of the week as a sophisticated, yet effortless dessert. If you decide to make your pastry from scratch, try out our recipe for a homemade, gluten-free pastry crust.
