A versatile, easy to make dessert. This recipe can be modified if you don’t have any figs (use 6 apples) or you can add other fruit of choice, depending on what’s in season or what you have on hand.
- 2 apples, peeled and thinly sliced, (if only using apples, 6 apples)
- 6 figs, stemmed and quartered
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temp
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup water
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees
- In large mixing bowl combine flour, butter, sugar and salt until a crumbly dough forms
- Roll out dough onto a lightly floured surface
- Transfer dough to baking sheet lined with parchment paper
- Brush dough with melted butter
- Arrange apples and fig slices (or just apple slices) in center of dough, leaving a border of about 1-2 inches around the edges
- Fold edges of dough up and over fruit, pressing gently to seal dough in place.
- Get a small bowl and whisk maple syrup and water
- Proceed to brush mixture over dough and fruit, (if only using apples- brush primarily over fruit slices and brush dough with melted butter. If figs are used, the moisture content prevents apples from becoming too dry in this recipe)
- Bake galette in oven 30-35 minutes or until crust is golden brown and fruit is tender
- Allow to cool and serve a la mode!
