Have you ever had an apple pie? Well, there has always been a bit of a debate about what is a pie versus what is a galette, but the basic difference is that a galette is uncovered on top and a pie is covered.
Here are the ingredients that you need in order to compete this recipe:
For The Crust
- 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
- 2 tablespoons salted butter, cold butter
- 2 teaspoons ice water
For The Filling
- 1 medium apple
- 1/2 teaspoon honey
- 1 1/2 teaspoons granulated sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- pinch ground nutmeg
- 1/2 tablespoon salted butter, cold butter cut into small pieces
- 1 small egg, beaten
To Make The Crust
- Heat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
- In a small bowl, mix together flour, sugar, and salt. Using a fork, cut in the butter until mixture resembles wet sand.
- Add water and stir to form dough.
- Turn the dough out onto a piece of plastic wrap. Flatten into a disc and wrap completely in the plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.
- After the dough has chilled, unwrap the dough and place it on a piece of parchment paper. Cover with a second piece of parchment paper. Using a rolling pin roll the dough into a 6-inch round circle about 1/8-inch thick.
- Place the parchment paper with the dough onto a baking sheet and remove the top piece of parchment.
- Peel, halve and core the apple. Thinly slice or chop the apple and spoon the pieces into the center of the dough, leaving a 1-inch space around the sides. Fold the rim of the dough up and around the filling.
- Drizzle the honey over the apples.
- In a small bowl, mix together the sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Sprinkle evenly over the apples and dot with the pieces of butter.
- Brush the crust with the beaten egg and sprinkle the crust with 1/4 teaspoon of sugar.
- Bake for 20 minutes, until crust is golden.
