On my last post I shared my Mom’s recipe for “Foolproof Pastry”. But that’s really only half the story, for it wasn’t until I baked this Apple Galette that I knew the pastry recipe was a winner.
I love the idea of a galette – it’s basically a freeform pie. You make the pastry and roll it out to a larger round than you need for a pie pan. Then you pile up the filling in the center of the pastry and bring the pastry edges up over part of the filling. Brush the pastry with milk and bake -voila!
For this galette I combined two different types of apples (Granny Smith and Honeycrisp), dried cranberries and pecans. Feel free to improvise, though, with your favorite pie fruits. I serve it topped with a scoop of ice cream.
