You may not know, dear American readers, that here in Canada, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the first Monday of October? So, perhaps all these Thanksgiving-themed recipes are coming at you much earlier than expected, but they will fit the season in any case! I made three pies/galettes for a thanksgiving potluck at my darling friend Nathan’s home. A true hit they were.
- Galette crust
For the Dough you’ll need:
- 2 cups of flour
- 1/3 cup cream cheese
- 2/3 cup of butter
- 2 T milk or water
- 2 t baking powder
- 1 t salt
- 1 t honey
- Additional flour for sprinkling
- 4 apples
- 3 T butter
- 1/4 cup of brown sugar
- 1 T cinamon
- 1 T flour
For the dough:
- Preheat oven to 350*F
- Place flour, salt, and baking powder in a bowl.
- Cut butter and cream cheese into small cubes and place them in the bowl.
- Mix well with a hook attachment to a mixer or simply with your hands.
- Add milk and honey and continue until you’ve formed a dough
- Spread flour on a cutting board and on rolling pin. Roll out dough until its around 10-12″ wide
- Use a big ol’ plate as a stencil for your crust
- Place it on a baking pan
For the apples-insides:
- Cut apples into thin slices
- In a pan, melt butter and add cinamon and brown sugar
- Add sliced apples and allow them to become drenched in butter mixture. Once they become fragrant and are soft, they are finished.
- Carefully scoop the apples and place them in the center of the dough
- Carefully fold the sides of the galette onto itself:
- Add flour to remaining sauce to allow it to thicken
and pour it all over your galette’s insides
- If you have extra dough, consider making it into fun shapes like leaves for autumn!
- Marvel at your unbaked galette
