Apple Almond Galette

Yield: 8 to 10 servings

For the Dough:

Ingredients

  • 250g     All-purpose flour
  • 2g        Salt
  • 170g    Unsalted butter, cold, cut into 8 pieces
  • 75g      Ice water

For the Filling:

Ingredients

  • 125g     American Almond® almond “schmear” filling
  • 15g       Butter, cut into thin slices
  • 45g       Granulated sugar
  • 3 to 4 large apples, peeled, cored and cut into very thin slices

Directions

  1. Combine the flour, salt and cold butter in the bowl of a food processor fitted and pulse with the metal blade. The butter should stay in visible pea-sized pieces. Add the cold water and pulse a few times to moisten the dough.
  2. Gather the dough up, roll into a disk, and wrap it in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least one hour before rolling.
  3. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface to form a 14-inch circle. Transfer the dough to a paper-lined baking sheet.
  4. Spread the almond schmear evenly over the dough leaving a 2-inch (5 cm) border along the edges blank. Start placing apple slices over the almond filling about 1-inch from the outside edge of the dough. Place the slices so that they overlap slightly working around the edge in a circular pattern.
  5. Fold the edges of the dough over covering the first circle of apples. Brush the crust with an egg wash. Dot the apple slices with the thin slices of butter then sprinkle evenly with granulated sugar.
  6. Bake the apple almond galette at 350°F until the crust is browned and apples are slightly darkened on top, 50 to 55 minutes.
