Apple Cinnamon Galettes

4 Aug

This is another adaption of Anna Olson’s recipe (I love watching her show) – apple cinnamon galettes. The pastry was amazing – crispy and flavorful, so I can’t wait to share my version (same directions but only the ingredients are slightly different).

Pie Douch

2 1/4 all purpose flour (replaced 3 Tbsp with cornflour to bring the ratio of protein down)
2 Tbsp sugar
225g (salted) butter, cut into pieces
1 egg yolk (I believe this is missing from her online recipe)
10 Tbsp chilled water
1 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice

Filling (makes 3)

1/4 cup sour cream
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extra
1 1/2 Granny Smith apple, peeled and sliced
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
3 little dots of butter
1 egg whisked for brushing
Demerara sugar for sprinkling (this really brings the pastry to another level!)

Same directions

I am not sure that using sour cream is a good idea, because it curdles over high heat (at least mine curdled). I’d suggest use creme fraiche or mascarpone cheese instead.
