Apple Galette




Baking and working with dough have always been my weak spots in the kitchen. I usually prefer to buy my deserts instead of making them. But it doesn't keep my from trying once in a while.




Galette is a good place to start. The dough is relatively easy to make, especially when you have a mixer that does all the work for you. The buttery crust comes out crunchy and delicious.



Ingredients:


2 1/2 glasses of white flour

3 table spoons sugar powder

150 g cold butter, cut in small cubes

1/4 glass of cold water

3-4 apples of your choice

3 tea spoons brown sugar

juice from 1/4 a lemon





Mix the flour and sugar powder in the blender bowl on medium speed.


Add the butter cubes and turn up the speed until the mixture becomes crumbly.





Slowly add the cold water until you see a ball of dough forming. It shouldn't be sticking to your hands or any other surface and is actually fun to play with. If it is sticky, add flour until it isn't.





Wrap the ball in plastic and store in the fridge until you need it, or at least for one hour.


Remove the apple cores and slice into thin even slices.


Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and slightly flour its surface.


Roll the dough ball into a nice circle, about 30 cm in diameter.


Arrange the apple slices in nested circles. If you picked apples of different colors, you can make each circle a different color or just go randomly nuts with it. Leave the border of the circle unpopulated.


Sprinkle the apples evenly with brown sugar and lemon juice.


Fold the empty edges towards the center from all sides, so that it is slightly covering the outer apples circle.


For the crust to get a golden color, you can brush it with egg wash or a butter cube.





Bake in preheated oven on 180 C / 400 F for 40-45 minutes until the crust is golden and the apples get some tan.
