Miniature Apple Galette Recipe

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

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. In a small bowl, mix together flour, sugar, and salt. Using a fork, cut in the butter until mixture resembles wet sand.
  3. Add water and stir to form dough.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Place the parchment paper with the dough onto a baking sheet and remove the top piece of parchment.
  7. 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.
  8. Drizzle the honey over the apples.
  9. In a small bowl, mix together the sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Sprinkle evenly over the apples and dot with the pieces of butter.
  10. Brush the crust with the beaten egg and sprinkle the crust with 1/4 teaspoon of sugar.
  11. Bake for 20 minutes, until crust is golden.
