6 Mac or Cortland apples, peeled and sliced thinly
½ cup sugar
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
¼ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
2 tablespoons all purpose flour


1. Make the tart dough and wrap in saran wrap, allowing it to rest for twenty minutes. (Alternative is to use an already prepared store bought dough.
2. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees.
3. Core and slice apples into thin (1/4 inch) pieces, as would be done for a pie.
4. Toss the apples with the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and flour.
5. (If making fresh dough) Roll out the tart dough into a large round, until it is 1/8 inch thick.
6. Fold the dough in half and lift it onto a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.
7. Unfold the dough and place the apples in the middle of the dough.
8. Pull the ends towards the center making a rustic tart. You can leave a small opening in the top for the steam to escape. Optional: If you like, glaze the tart with 1 Tablespoon of cream and one egg yolk, whisked together. Brush on the tart.
9. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 -15 minutes until golden brown, turn the oven down to 350 and bake until the apples are tender, about 10 to 15 more minutes.

Serve warm with your favorite Ice Cream!

Also referred to as a tart, a galette is a French culinary term for a round pastry or cake, either sweet or savory. This recipe is enclosed by rolling up the crust and is therefore similar to an apple pie. The Chef, Liz Walkowicz, adapted this tart from a Julia Child recipe. It includes a “crunchy” crust if you use her dough recipe with corn meal.
