What is an Apple Galette?
Galette is a French term used to describe a dessert wrapped in pie crust (sort of). Especially in this recipe, we are placing apple slices in the center of a rolled-out piece of pie dough and then taking the excess and folding it inward to create an effortlessly beautiful dessert!
How is a galette easier than a regular pie?
I think the real question is how is it not?! But seriously, you’ll blow your own mind with the simplicity of making an apple galette. For starters, when making an apple galette you won’t have to go through the painful process of trying to get your pie crust to lay in the pie plate perfectly without tearing (a feat I have only accomplished a few times). Another wonderful perk of an apple galette is that it is simply impossible to make a soupy galette, unlike how easy it is to get a soupy pie. This is because 1) the apple is in a thin enough layer that no juice would get trapped at the bottom 2) because the galette has an open top all of the water will evaporate leaving a beautifully not-soupy galette! So lay back and enjoy a non-stressful apple pie replacement.
