If you ever need to make a “dessert to impress” but either lack time or skill, this is the dessert for you!
Not only does this dessert look beautiful and impressive, but it is also delicious and has no added sugar (except for what is in the jam, and the light sprinkling of powdered sugar at the end.)
The ingredients are minimal, and if you can slice up an apple, you’re good to go!
Individual Apple Galettes
Makes 8 apple galettes
- frozen puff pastry (either 5×5 pieces or large sheets)
- 4 medium sized Granny Smith apples, peeled and thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup biscuit crumbs (Digestive biscuit/vanilla wafer type cookie)
- 3 tbsp butter, melted
- 1/3 cup (about 6 tbsp) apricot jam or marmalade
Preheat oven to 425ºF (218º C)
Whipped cream to serve
Roll the 5×5 sheets to 6×6, or a larger roll to a slightly thinner dough.
Use a 6″ diameter saucer or bowl as a guide and cut the dough(or you can make them square.)
Place the pastry on a cookie sheet lined with a silicone sheet or parchment paper, and sprinkle one tablespoon of biscuit crumbs onto the center of the circle.
Begin placing the apple slices (use 1/2 apple per pastry) in a circular pattern, leaving a small edge of pastry to form a crust.
Brush apple slices with butter.
Bake for about 20 minutes or until pastry is lightly browned and crisp and apples are tender.
Don’t worry about making them look perfect, they’ll look great when they’re all done. In small saucepan, over low heat, warm the jam or marmalade until melted, then brush over the apples while still warm.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar, and serve with fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice-cream if desired.
Now, doesn’t that look impressive?
