    Apple Galette

    A galette is traditionally a round, flat sweet dish with a pastry or pancake-type base. This rectangular puff pastry version is topped with Pink Lady apples, a summer eating variety that has a wonderful colour and flavour. Try this recipe, served hot or cold, instead of an apple pie.
