How To Make An Apple Galette | Gluten Free Apple Galette

Gluten Free Apple Galette

The beginning of Fall and the beautiful fall apples have me thinking about apple pie.  This Apple Galette or Rustic Apple Pie is a family favorite.  Our food allergies necessitated a few changes to my baking routine so this crust is gluten free but so good, no one knows the difference!

Gluten free baking can be intimidating but with the right ingredients, success possible. Chef Lena Kwak developed Cup4Cup in the kitchen of Thomas Keller’s Napa Valley icon French Laundry.  It truly is just that.  It has worked in everything I’ve used it in.  This Apple Galette recipe can be used with all-purpose flour as well!

  2. Take the butter from the refrigerator and quickly dice it.
  3. Place the butter cubes in the food processor and toss to coat with the flour mixture being careful with the sharp blades on the bottom.
  4. Pulse the mixture until the cubes are about pea sized.
  5. Add the ice cold water through the top of the food processor while it is running.

  7. Turn it out on to a well floured pastry board or sheet.
  8. Separate into two sections and form into a disk.
  9. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  10. Just before you roll out the crust, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  11. Mix brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large bowl.
  12. Zest the orange over the mixture, combine and set aside.
  13. Remove from plastic wrap and roll out on to well floured pastry board.

  16. Slice your apples into ⅛” slices.
  17. Add to sugar mixture and toss.
  18. Arrange them in a circular pattern on the crust leaving 1 ½ inch border of crust uncovered.
  19. Gently fold the pie crust over the apples.
  20. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  21. Remove from the oven and cool for 5 minutes.

Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 1 hour.  (A great tip for the holidays around the corner: These will keep for several weeks in the refrigerator and also freeze well for up to 6 months when wrapped tightly in 3 layers of plastic wrap and placed in a freezer bag. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator.)

Apple Galette fillingMix brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large bowl.  Zest the orange over the mixture, combine and set aside.  These Mircroplane tools are the BEST!  (*Note: Don’t add the apples yet.  They’ll get too juicy and make a mess when baking…I’ve done that.  Not good!)

    I’m making this today and I’m currently waiting for the dough in the fridge. I’m not a fan of apple pie because cinnamon and me are not good friends but it looks delicious and I had to try it.

  6. Brenda Haines

    I am going to have to try this. We have so many apples right now?

  7. Susan Vilardo

    I really enjoy making Apple pies in the Fall. I agree that granny smith and Honeycrisp are the best baking apples. I really like the appearance of the gallette! A handful of red hots spread across the to.o tastes good too!
