For the dough

  • 1 1/4 cups (160g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup (125g) butter, cold
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) ice-cold water
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tbsp. water
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar

For the filling

  • 12 large apples
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice


  1. In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar and salt. Add the cold butter in small pieces to the bowl. Mix until the butter is almost incorporated and you have crumbles. Drizzle the ice cold water over the flour mixture and stir it together until most of it has come together. Knead the dough and gather all the loose bits, working as quickly as possible to keep it cold. Wrap in plastic wrap and let rest in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 390˚F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Wash the apples, quarter, core and cut into thin slices (you can also peel the applesm but it’s not necessary). In a medium bowl combine sugar, cinnamon, cornstarch and lemon juice. Add the apples and mix until the apples are covered well with the mix.
  3. Devide the dough into four equal pieces. Roll out each piece into a circle of approx. 8 inches (20cm). Place on the parchment paper and devide the apples among the four circles and place in the centre – leave a one inch border. Lift the borders over the apples to form a nice crust. Mix the egg with the water and lightly brush the egg wash on the edges of the dough. Sprinkle with brown sugar. Bake the galettes for 30-35 minutes – the crust should be golden brown. Let cool on a cooling rack. Serve warm drizzled with the caramel sauce or ice cream.
