- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
- 3-4 tablespoons ice water
- 4-5 medium-sized apples, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)
- 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar (for sprinkling)
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, 2 tablespoons of sugar, and salt. Add the cold, cubed butter, and using a pastry cutter or your fingers, work the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
- Gradually add the ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time, and mix until the dough comes together. Form the dough into a disc, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Roll out the chilled dough on a floured surface into a rough circle, about 12 inches in diameter. Transfer the dough to the prepared baking sheet.
- In a large bowl, toss the sliced apples with 1/4 cup of granulated sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and lemon juice. Arrange the apple slices in the center of the dough, leaving a border around the edges.
- Fold the edges of the dough over the apples, creating a rustic crust. Brush the crust with the beaten egg and sprinkle turbinado sugar over the top of the galette.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown, and the apples are tender.
- Remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving. Enjoy your homemade Rustic Apple Cinnamon Galette!
