Pie season rolls on and I’ve been making this vegan apple galette on repeat. I spotted these beautiful pink-fleshed apples, aptly named Hidden Rose, at the farm market last week and knew they were destined for deliciousness in apple galette form. Not only are Hidden Rose apples beautiful but they are a great baking variety, slightly tart and hold their shape well when baked, making them perfect for pies and galettes. You can also use any good quality baking apples for this apple galette or a mix of varieties if you are unable to source Hidden Rose apples.
This vegan apple galette recipe uses my go-to flaky pie pastry dough for the crust and is sweetened with a combo of organic sugar and maple syrup. A little cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla are all you need to season the apples plus a splash of bourbon or whisky if you’re so inclined. You can easily make this on a weeknight or for Sunday supper. It’s a great recipe to have in your arsenal especially for the upcoming holidays!
I do love an apple pie but prefer galettes because they are easier and faster to make and always look good, be it a rustic or elegant presentation. The rectangular shape of this galette allows the apples to be spread out into a single layer and I found this helps them cook more evenly and faster than when I would pile them into a circular shaped galette. If you prefer round galettes by all means go right ahead and shape it that way. You really can’t go wrong when apples and cinnamon and flaky pastry are involved.
I hope you all are making the most of this season’s bounty and gearing up for amazing feasts this holiday season. I’ll be posting a Thanksgiving Recipe Roundup soon to help you sort out menu ideas. So stayed tuned for that and some more holiday friendly recipes coming your way!
