Apple Galette

It’s apple season here in the mountains! And I love them… Honeycrisp are my favorite. Especially paired with a super sharp cheddar cheese. That is my go to snack when honeycrisp are in season! Apple galette is the apple pie’s super easy going sister who enjoys being laid back and ready for anything, anytime.

One of the reasons why I love galettes are they do NOT have to be beautiful… The more rustic looking the better! Y’all know I do NOT bake.. which is why it took me a hot minute to label this post… I have next to no sweet somethings in my recipe index — Which is fine by me! But, come apple season, I couldn’t let this one pass by. It’s too good not to share!

Sign up for my email list, and I’ll send you my pie crust recipe. It’s super easy — even I can make it! Make it, and keep it in the freezer so you’re always ready…

I used my little leaf pie cutters and topped this cute little galette with the shapes of the season! You can find these and tons of other goodies in my Amazon Influencer Store. It’s full of all the things I love and use! This little storefront is constantly updated, if I find something I’ve ordered is worth it, I add it…

I topped this cute Fall treat with apricot jam. It makes it slightly more fancy, and super Insta-worthy! This sweet apple recipe pairs well with any soup or cozy meal.

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 1 minute 5 seconds
Total Time 21 minutes 5 seconds


  • 3 granny smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon corn starch

Peel, core, and slice the apples and place in large mixing bowl.

Sprinkle sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg over top.

Pour apples into a pot over medium low heat. Stir until sugar melts and apples soften slightly.

In a small bowl mix corn starch and cold water together.

Add to hot apples, and bring sauce to a boil, once sauce is thick, remove from heat.

Roll pie dough out into a 1/4" thick 14 inch circle.

Place onto half sheet pan.

Add apples to pie dough, and fold around apples

Swipe an egg wash over the raw dough

Adorn with Fall themed "excitement!" 😉

Bake at 350 degrees for half an hour, or until crust is golden brown on top.

When galette is finished baking, brush warmed apricot jam over the apples.


What Fall show stoppers can you not live without?! Have you made your bucket list to savor the season??
