Want an easy Apple Pie? Make this Apple Galette using frozen butter puff pastry. It tastes divine. In fact, it tastes just like an Apple Strudel! That's right. Apple Strudel! In fact, this is really all just the same recipe, just different shapes turning it into an international dessert. The only real difference is the shape. A galette is a free-form pie and it sounds so elegant. So French-like. The best part is that it's quick and easy.


Kaffeeklatsch Trivia with a cup of coffee and steam rising

  • Apple desserts come in a variety of types such as apple strudel, apple pie, apple crumble, apple crisp, apple cake, apple galette, applesauce cake, apple cheesecake, etc.
  • Although any type of apple can be used when cooking and baking, certain types are better for cakes since they keep their shape longer
  •  The best apples to use are those that are both sweet and tart. Mackintosh, Cortlands, Empires, Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, and Mutsu are especially wonderful when used in cakes and strudels

How to make this a Caramel Apple Galette ...

I altered the original recipe after discovering my daughter-in-love, Sylvie, loved caramel. I needed a dessert for her birthday, and this Caramel Apple Galette was it. I added 2 Tbsp melted butter and 8 unwrapped and quartered caramels.

"Galette" is a French term for a flat, round, or free-form tart.

Instead of the usual pie crust, the filling, and then a topping of pie crust, the pastry is rolled out, the filling put in, and the edge is just folded over the outside part of the tart.

I've made this before using a regular pie crust, but using frozen puff pastry that's been thawed is super easy and the resulting galette is DELICIOUS!

Easy dough. 

Easy shaping.

Easily among the best easy apple recipes!
