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!

Apple Crisp

One of our very first posts was a peach-raspberry crisp, which was an amazing summer dessert. Now that it’s fall, we’ve moved onto apple crisp. The topping is exactly the same, but the filling is different and perfect for autumn.

Topping:
4 tbsp. butter
3/4 c. flour
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. oats
1 tsp. cinnamon

Filling:
5-6 granny smith apples
2 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. flour
1 tsp. of pumpkin spice OR 1 tsp. of cinnamon and 1/4 tsp. ground cloves

In a small bowl, combine all topping ingredients. We found that cutting up the butter and then mushing it in with our hands was the best way to get the desired texture. It should be very crumbly and have small chunks, but no particularly large pieces.

Peel and chop apples into 1-inch sized pieces. In a separate bowl, add all filling ingredients and mix.

Pour the filling into an ungreased 8×8 pan. Spoon filling on top evenly. Make sure to get the edges and corners! Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes, or until bubbling and golden brown.
