Apple Galette

Yields: 1


Ingredients (Pastry):

1 ½ cups flour

1 ½ tsp sugar

¼ tsp salt

1 stick, plus 2 tbs cold salted butter, cut into small pieces

1/3 cup ice water


Ingredients (Topping):

4 honey crisp apples

2 tbs sugar

½ tsp cinnamon

1 tbs honey

1 tbs salt butter, cut into small pieces

First Step: In food processor, combine the flour with the sugar, salt and butter and process for about 5 seconds. Sprinkle ice water over the flour mixture and process until the pastry just begins to come together, about 10 seconds; you should still be able to see small pieces of butter in it. Transfer the pastry to a work surface, gather it together and pat into a disk. Wrap the pastry in plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled.

Second Step: Peel, halve and core apples then coarsely chop apples.  In a bowl add apples, 1 tbs sugar and ¼ tsp cinnamon.
