Apple and pumpkin—the two dominant flavors of autumn. Both of them made an appearance in the galette I baked with the intention of putting as much fall into one bite. Let’s just say, mission accomplished.
Galettes have this rustic, free-form look to them that I find just beautiful—especially with a shiny, golden crust. They’re kind of haphazard and unassuming, but the flavors come in and surprise you. I put all the autumn flavors into this galette—apple, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves with a sprinkle of dried cranberries. My tastebuds were over the moon when I took the first bite.
Not only does the pumpkin and apple galette succeed in the flavor category, but it is also on the easier side in terms of recipe difficulty. I found it similar to making a pizza pie where the pumpkin puree is the sauce and the apples and cranberries are the toppings. And if you’re one of those people who buys pre-made crusts, I suggest setting the Pillsbury box aside and try making your own. It is easier than you think and makes a huge difference in taste. It will also add to that rustic feel I was talking about before.
Perfect for Thanksgiving or just a weekday dessert, all in all this pumpkin and apple galette wins at fall.
