Apple Galette


It is Apple season here in Oregon and my favorite apple, the Honeycrisp finally comes down enough in price that I feel ok buying them.  They are a very flavorful and crisp apple.  I had a few in my fridge and decided to make an Apple Galette, so easy and so good!

4 apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1/8-inch thick slices
1/2 cup brown sugar, you can use a little less
pinch salt
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground Ginger
1/2 cup Golden Raisins
1 pre-made pie crust (the rolled kind in the freezer department)
Egg wash (egg mixed with 1 tablespoon water)
Turbonado Sugar (sugar in the raw) for dusting on top of crust

To make the pie:

Thaw the pie shell and flatten with your hands after you place it on a baking sheet (I use a Silpat also)

In a bowl mix the apples, spices, sugar and raisins

Place the apple mixture in the middle of the pie crust, leaving about a 2 inch edge of dough

Carefully fold the dough towards the middle of the pie as shown, folding as you go

Brush the crust with the egg wash and sprinkle the Turbonado Sugar over the crust and the apples

Preheat oven to 400°F

Bake for approx 20 minutes checking for too much browning around the edges and placing a piece of foil over it if it is getting too dark

Let cool and serve alone or with ice cream or whipped cream
