I love pie. It’s probably my favorite dessert. And apple pie is probably my very favorite pie. Or maybe pumpkin. I can’t decide because they’re both delicious.

But while homemade pie is undeniably delicious, the whole crust part can be kind of a pain in the butt. You have to roll it out into a perfect circle, carefully move it into your pie pan, and then crimp the edges so it looks uniform and pretty.

Most of the time I enjoy this whole ritual, but sometimes I just want some damn pie and I don’t want to have to work for it.

And that’s where the galette is perfect! It’s basically a pie that is purposefully uneven and imperfect. Or what I like to call “rustic” since that sounds better.

You do need to roll out the dough of course, but it’s okay if it isn’t a perfect circle. And there’s no moving it into a pan or making perfect pie crust edges.

Just roll it out, pour on your filling, fold the dough up over the filling all willy-nilly, and a short stint in the oven later and you’ve got one delicious dessert!

Of course, you can fill a galette with a number of different things, but since Thanksgiving isn’t too far away, and I’m a huge sucker for the holidays, I decided to do a basic apple pie type of filling.

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  3. Combine remaining ingredients in a large bowl and stir to coat apples.
  4. Add apple mixture to center of dough and gently fold the dough around the edges of the filling, leaving some of the filling exposed. Press any gaps in dough together.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes until apples are soft and crust is starting to brown slightly. The crust will not brown as much as traditional crust.
