"If you love pie, and your favorite part is the pastry, look no further. This pie will sure to be a new family favorite. This pastry dough is almost like a shortbread. It would also go well with pears or peaches. You don't even necessarily have to peel the apples!"

Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Whisk 1 1/8 cups flour, white sugar, and salt together in a bowl. Press 1/2 cup butter pieces into flour mixture with your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  2. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Pour water and vanilla into well; quickly work water and vanilla into flour to create a loose dough, adding more water if the dough is crumbly. You should be able to squeeze it in your hand and have it stay together but be a bit crumbly. Shape dough into a flat disc, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Stir brown sugar, 1 tablespoon flour, and cinnamon together in a bowl. Add apples and toss to coat. Let sit for flavors to blend, about 10 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  5. Roll dough out into a large, rough circle on a baking stone or baking sheet. Pour apple mixture into the center of the dough, leaving a 2-inch uncovered border, and dot apples with 1 tablespoon butter.
  6. Fold edges of dough up over the apples, leaving an opening in the center. Dot dough with remaining 1 tablespoon butter and sprinkle coarse sugar over the dough.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until the crust is crisp and golden and apples are tender and caramelized, 40 to 45 minutes.

A few apples fell from my tree, looked good so I looked for a quick galette to use them. This fit the bill. I had a little of my pie pastry leftover so I used that instead. The filling was pe...

I love to use this recipe as a starting point, with some small alterations. Must add appx. 1/2-3/4 more flour than stated. I've made it using pears and apples, but each time used just one big ap...

Fail!! The crust was delicious but too sticky even before I added water. I rolled it out on parchment, couldn't fold it because it was stuck, so I peeled and plopped pieces on the apple pile and...

I would definitely give this a 5 for taste! I used 4 very small apples and it was still too much for the amount of crust. And the high heat for that length of time seemed off. I baked at 450 fo...

I was lazy--used packaged pie crust! It was still yummy!
