Apple Galette


This apple galette is an easy, delicious dessert that is very fast. A galette is a very forgiving free form tart. It is classic and elegant, comforting and rustic. Its a classic French country dessert. You get all the delicious parts of an apple pie, with none of the fuss. My favorite part of a pie is the crust. With a galette, you get more flaky crust, yet it is much easier. The only downfall of this dessert is that it disappears too quickly. For the crust, I used apple jack brandy. Using alcohol instead of water prevents gluten from forming in the dough. This will make your crust so tender, you won’t believe it. I did not bother to peel the apples for the dessert. The skins of the apples are very beautiful, and come out very tender in this recipe. You can peel the apples if desired. I used Macintosh apples, because they were on sale, you can use any type of apples you like.
