Easy fall inspired dessert using pre-made pie crust for this apple pecan galette. Use apples from your local orchard to make baking a fall family activity.
  • 1 premade 12” pie crust, thawed
  • 1 lb fresh apples (about 5 small apples), peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • ¼ c sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • ¼ c chopped pecans
  • 1 Tbsp cold butter
  • 1 egg beaten with 1 tsp of water
  • About 1 tsp turbinado sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the sliced apples, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, pecans, and cornstarch.
  3. Unroll the pie crust on the parchment lined baking sheet and pile the apples in the middle of the crust. Spread them out evenly leaving a 2” border of crust all the way around the galette.
  4. Begin on one side to fold the edge of crust up over the apples and keep going around folding a bit of the crust and crimping it over the previous fold you made.
  5. Cut the tablespoon of butter into small cubes and place them on top of the apples.
  6. Brush the crust edge with the beaten egg and sprinkle it with turbinado sugar.
  7. Bake in a preheated oven for 30 minutes or until the crust is a nice golden brown color.
  8. Slide the galette off the baking pan (keeping it on the parchment) onto a cooling rack and allow to cool completely.
  9. Slice and serve! Store any leftovers in a covered container in the refrigerator.
