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!

1 heaping c. frozen strawberries and bananas

Raspberry Mango Smoothie

There’s nothing more refreshing than a cold smoothie on a hot summer day. This one combines both of our favorite fruits and looks pretty too.

Ingredients:
2 c. frozen raspberries
3 oz. plain Greek yogurt
1/2 c. water
1 c. frozen mangoes
1/2 c. orange juice

First make the raspberry portion by blending the raspberries, yogurt, and water until smooth. Pour half of it into your cup and pour the other half out of the blender into another cup to use later. Wash out the blender and make the mango portion by blending the mangoes and orange juice. Pour or spoon into your cup. Then pour the remainder of the raspberry smoothie on top so that there are 3 layers.
