Easy Apple Galette


Get in touch with your French side with this Homemade Apple Galette! Galettes are super French, although maybe more rustic French farmhouse than chic Parisian cafe. They have a really distinctive look, as the edges of the pastry base are folded up over the filling before baking, so it looks a bit like a cross between a tart and a pie.

The filling, whether sweet or savory, pokes its head out in the middle. In this galette recipe I’ve used apples, but you can use whatever you fancy – peach works wonderfully! The soft apple, fragrant with cinnamon, tastes delicious against the crisp and buttery pastry. Just a reminder to make sure the butter is thoroughly chilled before you start to make the pastry – very important!

So how to cook Homemade Apple Galette?

Steps to make Easy Apple Galette


Make the pastry


Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Using a pastry cutter, cut the cubed butter into the flour mixture until it forms pea-sized crumbs.


Add the sour cream


Add the sour cream and fold in gently until just mixed. Form the dough into a ball.


Chill the pastry


Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for an hour.


Mix the apple filling


Add the apple slices, apple or lemon juice, cinnamon and sugar to a bowl and toss well together until the apple is fully coated.


Heat the oven


Preheat the oven to 350°F.


Roll out the pie crust


Dust your work surface and a rolling pin with flour. Roll the pastry out, rotating it a quarter of a turn every couple of rolls to make a circle. It should be around a quarter of an inch thick. Lay the pastry on a greased and lined baking sheet.


Add the apple filling


Spoon the apple slices into the center of the pastry, or lay them out in a circular design, with the slices overlapping, leaving a couple of inches of spare pastry around the edge of the circle.


Shape the galette


Fold the excess dough into the center of the pastry, so it covers the outer inch or two of the apples.


Add some butter


Cut the two tablespoons of butter into cubes and scatter across the apples.


Make the egg wash


In a small bowl, mix the egg and water together. Brush the egg wash over the pastry and sprinkle with sugar.


Bake the galette


Bake the galette for 35-45 minutes, until the crust has turned a golden brown.


Serving Homemade Apple Galette

Leave the galette for a few minutes to cool. Then slice and serve with a spoonful of ice-cream.

Crowd pleaser 101 its very delicious and fun.

Haleigh Vellanki

This was super fun to make!! I shaped mine as a heart and drizzled a lottt of chocolate sauce on the top.

Mayah Onusko

I recommend refridgerating the dough over night so that its nice and cold but soft enough to form but not enough to fall apart instantly.

Taliyah Askar

No real difference between this and apple pie in my opinion but it's not bad.

Flora Ollivier

Big hit with the family and was gone instantly! we added some cinnamon to the top and crushed up almonds.

Maite Molt

If the apple becomes mushy at the bottom its completely normal because of the natural juices so dont stress abou that and just enjoy your galette!

Nya Kley

Farah Fryc

Dough was dry and crumbly not sure what i did wrong.

Jazlynn Mhoon

If youre like me and make your own caramel make sure that when the caramel turns milky brown you turn the heat on low or it'll become black and burn.

Arely Baab

Kinda time consuming but worth it in the end I think the flavor is very similar to apple pie though so i decided to add a bit more things to mine.

Arantza Ammirato
