This delightfully rustic apple galette recipe is quick and easy to pull off – you’ll have a delicious apple tart full of the cozy, comforting flavours of fall quicker than you can say apple pie!
Just like in the summer when I went a little nuts over summer fruit, I am now going slightly crazy over apples. So thought I’d go and make us some apple pie.
But then I thought – why? The mini cherry galettes that I made in the summer were a big hit so I figured, surely I can make an apple version for fall. And it turned out great!
Rustic (which is really another way of saying not perfect is ok), easy to put together (I made my own crust using this recipe but you can absolutely use ready-made puff pastry) and so delicious (the warm, cozy flavours of fall in every bite).
Rustic apple galette
You won’t believe how easy to make this galette is. That’s the thing with galettes – it doesn’t have to be perfect. And I think that’s where its charm comes from.
I did challenge myself by making my own dough because I really need to get better at it.
But if you’ve already mastered that or don’t feel like dealing with flour all over your face (or was that just me?), you can certainly buy ready-made puff pastry and just roll it out when you’re ready to use it.
The hardest thing about this recipe? Slicing the apples evenly so it comes out pretty – but hey, you can even skip the prettification (yes it’s a word) and the galette will taste as delicious.
The flavours of fall

I usually associate apples, cinnamon and cardamom with fall because the combination results in a warm, comfy flavour. I added fig to this apple galette to further accentuate the fall feels (and it gave the galette a nice, rich colour too).
We ate this warm with tea but the cooler weather certainly does not mean ice cream is out of the question!
So go ahead and put a scoop (or 2) of your favourite ice cream on top of this rustic apple galette and enjoy.
