Apple Pie Galette {Easy!}

If you are looking for a super quick, yet impressive dessert, try a galette!  A galette is French for "rustic, open faced pie"...I kid really.  This little baby took me only 10 minutes to put together, and that included the peeling, coring, and slicing of the apples...the hardest part!  It also only bakes for only 25-35 minutes, so in under 45 minutes (a majority of that being baking time), you can have a yummy cool looking treat for dessert on the table! 

I had recently bought some refrigerated pie crust (the kind that come in a box, rolled up), to make a bacon quiche.  I was thinking of what to make with the other pie shell in the box, and this came to mind.  Apple pie is my husbands favorite, so why not make a galette version of it?  So perfect this time of year as well.

Start by tossing your apple slices in a bowl with the sugar, cinnamon, and flour...

Place the coated apple in a big mound in the center of the pie dough.  Leave a good 2-3 inches of boarder.  I also used a pizza stone to bake it on...

Gently start folding up the sides, making little folds as you go like so... (It doesn't have to be perfect!)

Brush the outer edges with an egg wash...

Sprinkle some sugar over it all... (I used one packet of Sugar in the Raw.)

Bake for 25-35 minutes...

Slice and enjoy...  (It would be awesome with some vanilla ice cream!)

Apple Pie Galette

3 Apples, peeled, cored, and sliced (I used Granny Smith)
1/4 Cup Sugar
2-3 Shakes of Cinnamon (1/4 tsp.??)
1 Tbs. Flour
1 Refrigerated Pie Roll (I used Pillsbury)
1 Egg, lightly beaten with a splash of water
1 Packet of Sugar in the Raw (or extra plain sugar if you don't have any)

After you peel, core, and slice your apples, toss them in a bowl till well coated with the sugar, cinnamon, and flour.  Unroll your pie dough and place on either a pizza stone, or a large pan lined with parchment paper.  Place the apples in a mound in the center of the dough, careful to leave a good 2-3 inches of boarder of dough. Start by folding the dough over the apples, going around in a circle as you do.  There will be creases every several inches or so.  It doesn't have to be perfect!  Lightly beat the egg in a small bowl with a splash of water, and gently brush it on the outer pie crust edges.  Sprinkle one packet of Sugar in the Raw over the whole thing, being generous with it on the pie crust edges.  Bake at 400 degrees for 25-35 minutes.  Watch it carefully that it doesn't burn, but also check to be sure the crust is cooked as well.  Let it sit for a couple minutes, then slice and enjoy!

Hope you enjoy this EASY dessert!
