Cinnamon Apple Galette

Fall weather always gets me in the mood for warm apple pie.  I have seen some galette recipes on For the Love of Cooking.  It looks like a free form pie with the center completely open so you can see the delicious filling. I searched google images to find an appetizing apple galette since my favorite blogs didn't have a recipe using apples. I came across this caramel apple galette at  I changed up the recipe a little so the apple filling creates a sticky caramel sauce while baking.  My girls were standing in the kitchen sampling the apple filling. They said "ummmmm, it's really good Mommy!" Taylor brushed the crust with eggwash and sprinkled some brown sugar and cinnamon on top to make it golden brown and extra "cinnamony".


1 Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust
3 apples, cored and sliced thin
2 T flour
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp allspice
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 T water

1 egg
1 tsp water

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with non-stick cooking spray. In a medium sized bowl, add the sliced apples and the remaining ingredients. Stir to combine. Unroll the pie dough and roll out to a 13-inch circle. Lay the pie dough in the center of the prepared baking sheet. Add the apple mixture to the center leaving a 3-inch border. Fold edges of dough toward the center, overlapping a bit, and pinch to seal around the entire circle. The center will be completely open. Make the egg wash by beating up an egg with a teaspoon of water.  Brush egg wash on the crust and sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon.

Bake for 25 minutes, or until pie dough is golden brown.  The filling may leak out a little while baking...that's ok.  It's a free form pie that will still taste delicious! If you have some caramel sauce in the fridge, drizzle some over top.  It makes it extra "caramely".  Enjoy!

Serve it up with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
