Apple Cinnamon Galette

This year they sent me some Organic Unbleached flour, Whole Wheat Pastry Flour and some White Whole Wheat Flour. And of course a gingerbread mix. I love Hodgson mill flours because they are so hearty to me, more filling! Not to mention they are non GMO!

Apple Cinnamon Galette
Recipe type: dessert
Serves: 8
  • Dough - 1½ C. Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour
  • ¼ TSP. Salt
  • 10 TBS. unsalted butter cut into small pieces
  • ⅓ C. Ice Water
  • Filling - 4 apples, Red or Golden Delicious, peeled, quartered and sliced lengthwise
  • 2 TBS. honey
  • 2 TBS. Sugar
  • ½ TSP. Cinnamon
  • 2 TBS unsalted butter, cut into small pieces.
  1. Combine flour, salt, and butter in food processor and pulse until the mixture resembles corn meal; Drizzle ice water in until the mixture starts to come together to form a ball. You should still see butter pieces.
  2. Turn dough onto floured surface and form into a disk; cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled.
  3. Combine cinnamon and sugar in a bowl. Set aside
  4. Take half of your apple slices and chop them, saving the bigger slices for the top.
  5. Roll your dough into a circle and transfer to sheet pan. Fill with your chopped apples up to 1 inch from the edges.
  6. Drizzle honey over the apples.
  7. Take the larger pieces and layer them on the top in a concentric circle. Make it pretty, ya'll!
  8. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over the apples. Sprinkle the butter pieces evenly over the apples and cinnamon.
  9. Roll up the edges of the dough up over the apples. This is meant to look rustic so go for it!
  10. Bake for 1 hr or until the apples are done and the crust is golden. Transfer to cooling rack. Or in my case, pie plate.
