Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Heat the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the apples and saute until they start to soften, about 5-7 minutes.
  • Add the cinnamon, nutmeg, coconut sugar, and lemon juice. Continue cooking, stirring periodically to prevent burning, for about 5 minutes. The mixture should be thick.
  • Remove from heat and set aside. Lay the pie crust on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Pour half the caramel mixture on the pie crust and spread (see below for caramel instructions).
  • Pour the apple mixture on top, leaving about 2-3 inches at the edge of the crust, and drizzle with the remaining melted caramel.
  • Fold up the edges around the apple mixture. Brush the edges with egg wash and sprinkle with the coarse granulated sugar. Dot little pieces of butter on top of the apples.
  • Bake for 40 minutes. Remove and let cool fully before slicing.

How to Make Salted Caramel

  • Place the caramels, salt and cream in a microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds at a time, stirring until melted.

Notes

  1. Always bake the galette in the middle of the oven to prevent over browning;
  2. A layer of caramel on the crust before adding the apples prevents it from getting soggy;
  3. Cooking the apples before adding them allows them to release some liquid, which helps prevent the crust from getting soggy when we bake the galette;
  4. Don't over stuff the galette - if it is too full the crust may become soggy. The apples should be in an even layer;
  5. I HIGHLY recommend using granny smith apples - they release less liquid and have a great flavor when cooked.
