The french cuisine is quite impressive and this french galette aux pommes is one of the most delicious things I've ever eaten. So, am I going to write this post in french then? Nope. Let me tell you about my yummy galette in a less complicated language...
Do you love a lightly browned crust combined with soft and sweet apples as much as I do? This galette has quite everything that a bakerheart can ask for. The sides are a bit crispy, the inside is soft and moist, the dough is incredibly easy to prepare and the result is yumyum. Apples can be replaced by pears, yogurt can be replaced by sour cream, so just take out some simple ingredients and start. Seriously, you don't wanna miss this...
Galette aux pommes
1 1/4 cup white flour
8 Tabsp cold butter or margarine
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup yogurt or sour cream
3 Tabsp cold water
1/2 cup white sugar
2-3 apples, thinly sliced
some sugar for sprinkling (I was using about 1 tablespoon)
Place flour, salt, sugar and cold butter into a bowl and combine using a fork (or your fingers) until you have a very crumbly mixture.
Add yogurt and water and knead until you achieve a dough which has a smooth and soft texture. If the dough is still dry or crumbly, add some water and knead in, and if it's still too sticky sieve over some flour and knead in as well.
Cover with a plastic wrap and let sit in fridge for about 2 hours. (The dough can be prepared even a day before baking and let sit in fridge over night.)
Preheat oven to 175C.
Line a baking sheet with baking paper.
Take your cooled dough out of the fridge and place it onto the lined baking sheet. Roll it out or strech with your fingers evenly to a round shape.
Arrange the thinly sliced apples on top, as you wish. Sprinkle with sugar.
Fold the sides of the dough onto the apples and gently press them on.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 25 minutes until golden browned.
Let cool completely and dust with icing sugar, if desired.
