It's WeekNight Bite - Holiday Edition today, and you're going to love this delicious, warm, and cozy Apple Cinnamon Galette. A galette is a rustic french tart . . . keyword "rustic". I love finding recipes that are supposed to have a rustic look, which basically means to me that it's totally freeform and hard to mess up! You can make it look any way you want, and it will never be questioned because it's homemade and "rustic"! Anyway, this tart is beyond yummy. I learned how to make a galette at The New School of Cooking and just fell in love with the whole process. We made galettes with all different fruits - peach, strawberry, and apple - and they were all amazing, but the apple one just screamed HOLIDAYS to me. I'm envisioning making this in a snowy cabin somewhere, sitting by a fireplace, and diving into my apple galette with fresh whipped cream, while listening to Mariah Carey holiday music. Doesn't that sound SO lovely? Wellll, it's about 80° in LA today, no snow, and I have a fake fireplace, but I do have Mariah ready to go, and I do have my apple galette, so that's good enough for me!
Making the homemade crust was very exciting for me because 1, you only need 4 ingredients, 2, it's super easy and I'm no longer intimidated by it, and 3, this crust recipe can be used for pies, galettes, and quiches! You're learning some serious life skills today on WeekNight Bite! I admit we're working with some serious butter here, but everyone out there should know how to make a homemade crust, and when it's done, you can split the galette with 5 friends and not even worry about it! So here we go . . . this is how you're going to make your new favorite holiday dessert:
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
Pinch of sugar
1 stick (4 oz) butter - cold, and cut in 1 inch cubes
1/4 cup ice water
1 1/2 green apples - peeled and thinly sliced
1 tsp ground cinnamon
Pinch ground nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tbsp butter
Serving: 5 slices
Hope you enjoy this recipe . . . I promise you'll feel like a total domestic goddess after you make it!
