Apple Galette


Ingredients:
1 1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 stick cold butter
2 apples
cinnamon and granulated sugar
1 egg
honey, if desired

For the crust:
Mix 1 ¼ cup flour with 1 teaspoon salt and sugar. Cut in 1 stick of cold butter to the dough and add in just enough ice-cold water to bring the dough together, a few tablespoons. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill for about an hour. 

For the apples:
Slice 2 apples, and layer in a bowl with sugar and cinnamon. Cover and place in the fridge until needed.

Procedure:
Roll out the dough to the desired size, I trimmed the edges with a sharp edge for a clean look. Using a bench scraper I marked about 1 inch in from each edge to note where to place the apple slices.
Layer the apple slices and drizzle with honey. 
Pull over the edges and pinch lightly to seal. I cut out some small stars to decorate the crust. Beat an egg with a little bit of water and brush the pastry. Bake at 350°F for 30 - 35 minutes until the crust is baked through and golden brown.
