I thought I was jumping the gun with the fall desserts, and then we had an entire week of rain. Like RAIN rain. The kind that makes the tree across the street fall down, the lights in the house flicker, and keeps you in your sweats all day long. We turned the heaters on for the first time since Spring and enjoyed the first of many apple treats for the season.
Truth be told, I've been meaning to make this galette for weeks now. I had my eye on that gorgeous blueberry-pecan number that graced to covers of Bon Appetit and then was certain I was going to make the most of summer's stone fruit and whip up a tasty peach one. Neither happened.
The best thing about rustic galettes is that you can make them all year long! Swap out the fruit and filling to whatever is season, and you have a quick 'n easy dessert no matter what month it is. So for fall, I went with a Toffee Honey Apple Galette!
Free-form galettes are like a fancy lattice pie’s unapologetic, untamed cousin. And if you are like me and are seriously lacking in your lattice game, then this rustic pastry wins almost every time. A little lopsided, slightly too crispy on one edge, all-together not picture-perfect? Who cares! It's delicious! Plus, isn't rustic the new "chic" anyways?
How are you kicking off apple season? What flavour of galette do you think would be the best for fall? I'm thinking pear-maple would be awesome. Head on over to Brit.co to pick up the full recipe!
