So, sadly, this is all that's left of my apple galette.
A galette is basically a free-form pie. I found this recipe on epicurious. This was the first time I've made an all-butter crust and the first time I've utilized my food processor in the making of the crust.
This was super easy and my audience gave it a 9 out of 10.
The crust is flaky, crunchy, and pure perfection. Apricot preserves are spread over the crust before the apples are placed on top. The apples are simply prepared - sliced and tossed with sugar and lemon peel.
The result was something even better than a McDonald's apple - it was so good it almost tasted fried.
I was so glad that I'd managed to snap a few pictures during the four minutes of sunshine we enjoyed today.
Those are real rays of sunshine, believe it or not. And, check out that quilt - love it!
