Toro which played classics like No Diggity, and caught an early breakfast at our old Beacon Hill diner. I kept wondering if everyone could tell I'm actually a very tame mom from a small island...
this tart and found enough things around the house (apples, honey, cinnamon, sugar) to quickly put this together.
For the filling:
4 cups sliced apples - I used Gala and left the skins on
juice 1 lemon
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 pastry crust (see recipe below)
splash of milk or cream vanilla ice cream or whipped cream for serving
For the filling:
Simply toss apple slices, lemon juice, sugar, and cinnamon in a large bowl.
For the crust:
*makes 2 crusts but you only need 1 for this galette
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour plus more for dusting
1/2 tsp table salt
1 cup very cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2" cubes
1/4 cup ice water
1. In the bowl of a food processor combine flour and salt, pulse. Add
the butter. Pulse 20 times or until the butter is the size of tiny
pebbles. With the motor running, stream in ice water. Stop the motor.
Pulse 6-8 times until the mixture leaves the sides of the bowl.
2. Turn mixture onto floured counter and knead it to form a dough. You
simply want to bring all the crumbs together and make it smooth.
3. Divide the dough in half, shape each into a disc about 1" thick, wrap
with plastic, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour up to 2 days.
1. Pre-heat oven to 400 and line a baking pan with parchment paper.
2. Roll chilled pastry dough into a rough 12" circle, using plenty of flour and place on baking pan.
3. Drizzle honey in a thin layer across dough, leaving a 1" border around the edges.
4. Arrange apple slices, starting from the outside working in, tightly overlapped into a spiral, leaving a 1" border.
5. Fold dough over apples and brush edges with milk or cream. You can sprinkle the edges with sugar if you like.
6. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until nicely browned.
7. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
