Apple Galette

Apple desserts are a great way to celebrate fall!

Ingredients:
2 c. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
5 tbsp. sugar
7/8 c. cold butter (1 and 3/4 sticks)
2-4 tbsp. cold water
2 large apples (I used 1 macintosh and 1 gala)
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. lemon zest
1/4 c. apple (or other fruit of choice) jam
Lemon juice

Dice butter into half-inch cubes. In a food processor combine flour, salt, and 1 tbsp. sugar. Then add butter and blend until grainy. Add 2 tbsp. water and pulse until dough starts clump. Add another 1-2 tbsp. water if dough is too dry. Press dough into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour. In the meantime, slice apples into 1/8-inch thick slices. Combine apple slices with lemon zest, 2-3 tbsp. sugar, and cinnamon, and squeeze some lemon juice in. Remove dough from refrigerator and roll out between 2 pieces of parchment paper into a circle that is 1/4-inch thick. Spread jam on crust, leaving 1 inch plain border. Lay apples in concentric circles on top and fold up edges of crust. Bake on 450 for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Cool and enjoy!
