I love making galettes at home, and this vegan apple galette is definitely my favorite. This time of year when apples are just right, crisp, and delicious. This apple galette is one of the desserts that disappears from my table every time I prepare it.
It tastes good at room temperature or when it’s just out of the oven. It tastes delicious with a dollop of whipped cream coconut or cashew) or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
WHAT IS A GALETTE?
A galette is a term that the French use to say to this type of pie. It is not a pie; it is spread pastry dough that wraps any filling, sweet or savory.
The beauty of galettes is that they will always be good and beautiful no matter their shape or appearance. The rustic form and shape are part of what makes this French dessert a favorite around the world.
✨ I love making galettes, they make me feel like the best home-cook ever. The always turn out beautiful, delicious and with a flaky perfect crust.
HOW TO MAKE THE galette DOUGH?
The dough is super easy to make, and you can make it by hand or in the food processor (affiliate link). The photo above is the first step. You gather all the powders, mix them very well with your hand, add the oil, and begin to integrate everything.
The idea is to mix it and break up the balls formed from the flour and oil so that it looks like sand. Then add the iced water, transforming it into a soft, easy-to-handle dough.
When everything is integrated, it forms a ball and is put into the fridge for about 10-15 minutes, during which you prepare the apples.
THE FILLING OF THE GALETTES
The galettes can be filled with anything from blackberries, strawberries, vegetables, peaches, etc. This apple galette is one of my favorites because, apart from being super easy, I always have apples at home.
This apple galette also has cinnamon and other spices, making your whole house smell delicious when you put it in the oven. Apple and cinnamon are scents that always bring me feelings of peace and family moments.
HOW TO PREPARE THE APPLE FOR THE GALETTE?
Cut the apple into fourths, and then each quarter, slice it as thin as you can. I slice it either with a super sharp knife, mandolin (affiliate link), or sometimes I put it in the food processor (affiliate link).
If you slice it with the food processor, use the cutting disc and try different thicknesses. The apples should be thin, but they should keep their shape.
