Are you intimidated by pie, specifically the crust? I think the crust is the scariest part of the pie for many people. But it doesn’t have to be.
We have a few resources to help you with your pie making skills such as numerous blog posts and , of course, our pie recipe book “For the Love of Pie.”
Today I present you with a recipe that will help you get you comfortable with the crust; Vanilla Apple Galette. To make this you will want our pie crust recipe!
Vanilla Apple Galette
A galette is a rustic, free-form pie. It is also delicious. It’s also a great last minute dessert (for instance if you find out an hour or two before you have to leave for dinner that you’re bringing dessert). I had everything I needed for this recipe in my pantry already. The prep from start to finish was probably 15-20 minutes and that includes making the crust, coring, and slicing the apples. Even arranging them in an appealing way didn’t take too long.
This is a deceptively simple recipe that makes you look like a master baker and will help you get the hang of pie crust. Because the pie is free-form it’s ok to have raggedy edges and cracks around the edge of your crust. There more you make galettes the more you will get the feel of how pie crust works and likes to be handled.
Let us know how your galette turns out!
