Galettes are a beautifully rustic dessert, and I believe any level of baker can make one with ease. Today I want to share with you a recipe for my Mini Apple Galettes. These tiny desserts are sweet with a hint of autumn spice, and a flaky, buttery crust. Individual pies make for a beautiful presentation at a dinner party and take away the need to cut and serve slices. Plus, they’re adorable!
If you’re intimidated by making your own pie crust, feel free to buy a pre-made crust at the grocery store. While I enjoy the taste and flakiness of a freshly made pie crust, store bought is pretty close to the real thing. Plus, it saves some time in the kitchen.
I personally love to top my mini apple galettes with a nice dollop of whipped cream. However, vanilla ice cream would be a great addition too – especially if you are serving these warm. Yum.
I like to sprinkle a bit of turbinado sugar on top of my egg wash, just before the galettes go into the oven. If you don’t have any on hand, granulated sugar also works great. This will make a crispy, sugary crust on the top of your pie as it bakes. This step is entirely optional, but I recommend it.
