Apple Galette with Brown Sugar Bourbon Glaze

Nothing beats apple pie am I right? I know I'm always reaching past the pumpkin for a slice of the apple. Correction: I'm eating the apple first, sampling the pumpkin, and back to the apple. I'm talking a thanksgiving scenario here people! Well here is a apple galette for you to test out. Maybe you already tried my peach blackberry & thyme galette, I use the same base for this one. Another Martha Stewart perfect pie crust, and five ingredients more brings this baby together. Flaky crust with a slight crunch from the glaze, glorious tart Granny Smith apples, and with a bit of vanilla ice cream its downright heavenly!

Serves 4


  • 1 pie crust dough ( check out Martha Stewart's if you wish to make it yourself!)

  • For the filling:

  • 1 tablespoon of sugar

  • 2 apples (I used Granny Smith)

  • Pinch of cinnamon (optional)

  • For the Glaze:

  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon of melted butter

  • A splash of bourbon (optional)

You'll Need:

baking tray, tin foil or parchment, and rolling pin


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

  2. Line baking tray with tin foil or parchment.

  3. Roll out pie dough in a pizza like shape and place on lined baking tray.

  4. Peel and slice apples. Dust with tablespoon of sugar and cinnamon if desired.

  5. Place apples in center of crust.

  6. In a small bowl stir together melted butter, brown sugar, and bourbon with a spoon.

  7. Form the crust edge-fold pie crust edges over apples in whichever desired fashion. Galettes are meant to be free form and rustic! Thats the fun in them.

  8. Spoon over brown sugar glaze covering the apples. Brush some onto the crust to give it that crunch!

  9. Place in oven to bake for 20-25 minutes until crust is golden brown. Serve with vanilla ice cream and enjoy!
