Tender, flaky crust is filled with soft baked apples tossed in cinnamon and sugar, which makes this Apple Cinnamon Galette perfect for breakfast or dessert.
Last week we got a bag of fresh Rome apples from my mother in law, she made a quick trip back to NC to close up the family cabin and stopped by the apple orchard while she was in town. I was so excited to get some fresh picked apples to bake with! I wanted to bake some kind of pie, except I was feeling a bit lazy and a little anxious and didn’t want to wait for a full pie to bake.
So of course I decided to make a galette, more than once I have professed my love of a good galette. They are delicious, easy and can be filled with whatever fruit or veggies you have on hand. Flaky crust filled with soft baked apples tossed in cinnamon and sugar. If you love apple cinnamon you need to make yourself one of these galettes; enjoy and happy baking!
