A galette is basically a free-form pie; the recipe only takes a few minutes to prepare. It allows a lot of error and creativity.
It’s a very impressive dish to make for the family. It’s a new recipe even for seasoned food lovers, but anyone can make it.
I didn’t need perfectly rolled dough; it’s called rustic because you don’t need to perfect every little detail. Follow this recipe if you want to try salted caramel apple galette.

Ingredients Needed For Salted Caramel Apple Galette
You can decide on the number of ingredients based on how large the galette you are making is. But here is what you will require.
- Thinly sliced apples
- All-purpose flour
- Ground cloves
- Ground nutmegs
- Ground cinnamon
- Granulated sugar
- A lightly beaten egg
- Fresh lemon juice
- Salted caramel salt
- Cold butter pieces
Put salt, sugar, and flour into the food processor and pulse three times. Add butter and then water and keep processing until it forms a ball.
These processes won’t take you a long time, so you can preheat the oven before you start making filling or while you are making the crust. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
Remove the dough from your food processor and place it on a flat surface. Use the rolling pin to press it into a thick circle. But it should not be too thick, just enough to form a crust.
Cover the thick circle of dough and leave it for thirty minutes. While the crust is resting, you can start on the filling.
If you have whole apples, prepare them first by cutting thin slices. If you are a bit lazy, you can buy sliced apples at the nearest store; I prefer gala apples.
Pour the slices into a large mixing bowl, add flour, sugar, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, and lemon juice. Stir the bowl until your apple slices are fully coated.
You can choose to mix the flour separately and pour it on the slices before adding the other ingredients. Whichever works for you is fine.
Place your circle dough on parchment paper; the paper should be a bit smaller than the baking sheet. You have successfully transferred the parchment paper to the baking sheet; you can start filling the crust.
Arrange your apple mixture in the middle of the dough. Leave around three inches of dough to make folding easy.
Take the edges of the dough and fold them over the apple mixture. You can be creative with folding or keep things simple.
When you are done, mix water and the egg in a small bowl and brush it on the folded parts of the crust. Bake the galette for about 35 minutes until the crust turns golden brown before removing it.
Allow it to cool, then drizzle caramel sauce before you serve.
This simple recipe is easy to follow. Thank you for staying to the end of the process. Try putting your skills to the test while making a galette.
