i kept seeing people post tempting pictures of galettes on instagram this weekend, so by labor day, i finally broke down. we had a couple of apples from our friend's apple tree that were just on the edge of being too soft to bite into, so it was perfect timing. this dessert was so simple and satisfying, and was an appropriately american dessert for a holiday weekend. besides needing some direction on baking times from epicurious, i made this up as i went.
caramel apple galette
sliced apples (i used four small green, and two medium galas)
1 tbsp sugar (only if you prefer)
handful of caramels
splash of citrus
dash of cloves
mix apple filling together and carefully wrap into the pie crust without tearing. brush sides with milk and sprinkle with sugar. bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for 20 minutes, then lower the heat to 375 degrees and bake for another 30 minutes, or until crust is dark golden brown. cool for 10 minutes. once the caramel that has melted out of the galette cools, break and stick into ice cream or tops of sliced galette. enjoy!
