Apple Galette with Caramel Sauce

This apple galette is a bit simpler than a traditional pie and it makes for such a pretty presentation!

I popped in to the kitchen this afternoon to put a frozen pizza in the oven. I clearly lead a glamorous life.

While I was waiting for the oven to preheat I noticed the big bag of nice green apples on my kitchen counter and I just couldn’t resist whipping up this amazing Apple Galette.

If I’m going to cook frozen pizza for lunch, then darn it, I’m makin’ a fancy dessert. Because I am sophisticated and refined and classy. Also, I like apple pie.

This “pie” is really a galette, but only because I discovered that I only had one pie crust in the fridge. I wasn’t in the mood to make my own, so I just went with the flow and used what I had on hand.

I peeled the apples (mostly…I’m a notoriously bad peeler) and sliced them very thin. I grabbed a large bowl and tossed them in some brown sugar, cinnamon, a bit of flour, and a dash of salt. I would have squeezed on some lemon juice if I’d had any on hand, but I didn’t.

About the time I had those apples covered in the cinnamon mixture I started snacking. And snacking. And snacking some more. This always happen when I make apple desserts.

I should just learn to peel and slice an extra apple for me to eat. I just can’t help myself. I’m a mad woman. An apple slice stealing mad woman.

There are worse things one could be.

Apple Galette recipe

Of course, an apple galette is delicious on it’s own, but I drowned mine in caramel sauce. It seemed like the right thing to do. I sprinkled on some pecans, too. Pecans and caramel…yum.

I had this whipped up and ready to pop in the oven in the time it took my frozen pizza to bake. I think you’d better go make this right now. I’m pretty sure you’ll never forgive yourself if you don’t.
