This Easy Salted Caramel Apple Galette has all of the warm & delicious flavors of a classic apple pie but is quicker & easier to create!
I just realized I whispered “I love it so much!” as I’m sitting here looking at this Easy Salted Caramel Apple Galette recipe.
Some people whisper “I love you so much” over their sleeping babies, & I’m over here whispering to my dessert galette about how much I love it & want to eat it.
I hope that isn’t too creepy? Because it is so true! I’m completely obsessed!
When I made these Easy Salted Caramel Apple Galettes I was lucky my sister was with me, because I would have happily consumed the first one (that serves 4) all by myself.
Yep, & I’m openly admitting that I ate this dessert for lunch. Apples are healthy, right?
I then saved the second one, by putting it in the freezer, to enjoy later. Although later came only a few hours later… I may or may not have popped the second apple galette in the microwave to reheat because I had to have some more!
Yes, I am overly addicted to these apple cinnamon galettes drizzled in salted caramel sauce. My mouth began to water just writing that sentence as the memory of those flavors on the puff pastry crust came rushing back.
I think if I was to ever write a series of romance novels they would all be about dessert & the first one would be called, How I Dream of Galette.
Ok, ok. I’ll try to not scare you with my love for this dessert. But it’s so good I had to make it again last weekend for Roger’s family. And since there is a lot of them I ended up making a double batch, so that all 16 of us (minus baby Lilly) could enjoy a slice with ice cream.
And if this is your first experience with galettes I should admit, I cheated, & I should explain why.
Galettes are similar to tarts & pies, but I don’t really like pies, something about the crust. So I decided to create a galette with a crust that I knew I would love & that would be way easier to create, puff pastry!
My sister is the official apple pie baker for Thanksgiving & she admitted that she likes this cinnamon apple galette even better than apple pie!
I think we both love how simple, fresh, flaky, & quick this recipe is to create, plus it makes your home smell incredibly delicious!
If you need a last minute fall dessert, I highly recommend this Easy Salted Caramel Apple Galette! Although I should warn you, once your family tastes just one bite, they will be begging you to make it again & again all season long. Good thing it is so easy to make!
- Puff Pastry(defrosted over night in the fridge)
- Caramel Pieces
- Sea Salt
- Ice Cream - optional
- Filling Ingredients
- 3 Large Apples (peeled & thinly sliced, about 1/4 inch thick)
- 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
- 1 Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extra
- 2 Tablespoons Corn Starch
- 1/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
- 1/4 Cup Dark (or light) Brown Sugar
- 2 Teaspoons Cinnamon
- 1/4 Teaspoon Nutmeg
- 1 Pinch of Salt
- Egg Wash Ingredients
- 1 Large Egg
- 1 Tablespoon Milk
- 1 Tablespoon Granulated Sugar
- Salted Caramel Drizzle Ingredients
- 1/3 Cup Caramel Bits
- 1 Teaspoon Milk (or water)
- 1/2 Teaspoon Flaky Sea Salt
- First, preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
- In a large bowl, combine the apple slices, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, & 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract.
- In a small bowl mix the 2 tablespoons corn starch, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, 1/4 cup dark brown sugar, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, & 1 pinch of salt.
- Sprinkle the ingredients from the small bowl into the large bowl & toss the corn starch mixture with the apples.
- Remove the puff pastry from the refrigerator and cut off the corners to create a circle. *(1)
- Pile & arrange the apple slices in the center of the crust while leaving 1-2 inches of crust.
- Fold the 1-2 inches of crust dough up & over the sliced apples to create a crust edge that will hold in the apples while baking.
- In a small bowl, whisk the egg & milk to create an egg wash. Brush the top of the crust edge with the egg wash & sprinkle with granulated sugar.
- Bake for 10-15 minutes or until puffed & golden brown.
- Once golden & flaky remove from oven & let cool slightly.
- In a small pan (I use an egg pan) add 1/3 cup caramel bits & 1 teaspoon milk & cook at medium heat until melted, stirring occasionally.
- Once melted stir in 1/2 teaspoon flaky sea salt & then drizzle the salted caramel sauce on top of the warm apple galette.
- Serve with ice cream & enjoy!
- *1. I cook these on the side to eat with the ice cream & dip in the salted caramel.
