If you need a dessert for any fall/winter holiday, you've come to the right place.
Recently, I experimented with a simple apple galette and man am I happy that I did. This recipe is full of flavor yet oh so simple to make. It’s foolproof.
The combination of cinnamon and nutmeg makes this soooo cozy. Added bonus, I used store-bought pie crust and it was still amazing. I also added a maple glaze on top (which is completely optional but highly recommended) and I swear I want to pour this stuff on everything now. Can’t get enough.
Lastly, no galette is complete without a scoop (or a few) of vanilla ice cream.
Spiced Apple Galette with Maple Glaze
- Frozen pie crust I used Pillsbury — room temp
- ⅔ pink lady apples depending on their size
- ¼ cup light brown sugar
- Juice of ½ a lemon
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ½ tp nutmeg
- Vanilla ice cream
For the maple glaze:
- ¾ cup powdered sugar
- 2 tbsp pure maple syrup — the good stuff 🙂
- 2 tsp whole milk
- Preheat oven to 350℉.
- Core apples and cut into ¼ inch thick slices.
- In a bowl, combine brown sugar, lemon, cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg — add the sliced apples and toss to combine.
- Unfold pie crust and place apples in the center leaving approx. 2-3 inches around the edge. I personally tried for a circular design laying the apples overlapping and flat.
- Drizzle about 1 - 2 tsp of the extra “sauce” over the apples.
- Fold up the edges of the pie crust — they’ll overlap a little — and bake for 40 minutes.
- For the maple glaze, combine the powdered sugar, maple syrup and milk — whisk until smooth and creamy!
- When the galette is done baking, let cool a bit and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and drizzle with the maple glaze.
