I don't really like apple pie. I know, I know, SO un-American. The past few years at family Thanksgiving my mom and I have been making apple galettes - (basically just open-faced pies). By the time dessert comes around I am normally too stuffed to even eat any of the pie I helped make, but I vowed this year would be different. I saw this pin and it made me determined to not only make one by myself this year, but buck up to the American tradition of actually enjoying said dessert.
Looks good, right? To make it you'll just need:
1 pre made pie crust
3 medium sized Mcintosh apples (or another good baking apple)
1 lemon (both juice and zest)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
A preheated 400 degree oven
The galette turned out completely delicious. We had it bake while we ate dinner so when we were ready for it it was hot and bubbly and delicious! Michael ate 3/4 of it, and Matthew and I split the rest. All the lemon juice and zest makes it taste incredibly bright and fresh.
You proud, mom?
