This Apple Galette made with store-bought puff pastry is a great last-minute dessert option for the fall.
When you have a house full of kids and guests coming over for a meal, finding the time to bake something delicious for dessert may be a challenge. If this sounds like you, this Apple Galette with Puff Pastry is a godsend.
It’s no secret that I love easy desserts. Something that I can whip up in a pinch is always a win to me. With three kids, you can’t blame a girl for wanting simplicity. I love this Apple Galette recipe because it’s pretty, tasty and quick to assemble.
To keep things quick and easy, I use store-bought puff pastry. Yes, you can absolutely make your own if you choose. Homemade puff pastry is delicious. However, for the sake of time, store-bought is the way I went. Make sure to thaw the puff pastry prior to assembling the galette. I left mine in the refrigerator overnight and it was perfect.
For this recipe, I used Honey Crisp apples. They’re my favourite apple in many ways and I love to bake with them. They’re just the right amount of sweet. Other apples I recommend for this recipe are Granny Smith or Gala, but feel free to use whichever you prefer.
I like this recipe because kids can easily help with the assembly. Aside from slicing the apples, your mini-helpers can execute most of the tasks without too much difficulty (depending on their age, of course). There is even some painting involved if you count the egg-wash. Honestly, fun for all.
I suggest serving this apple galette warm and topped with ice cream. It keeps well 2-3 days if stored in a sealed container and can be reheated after the fact.
