Okay, guys. We all know that I am all about the one bowl baking, super easy dessert recipes. I mean, it took me a long time to muster up the courage to begin to post baking recipes on here. I’ve always been a boxed brownie type of girl and I never made a batch of homemade cookies until I was 20. 

So, going into the holiday season, I’ve been asked to bring a lot of desserts. At first, I slightly panicked but then remembered an amazing invention…PRE-MADE PIE CRUST. Yup. Specifically, Wewalka pre-made pie crust. Which is European Style bakery dough that’s extra buttery and doesn’t have ANY LARD. Yes yes yes.

What is a Galette?

Galette’s are my go-to dessert that I make during the Holiday season. Basically, it’s a super easy version of a pie! It’s a bit more rustic and not as formal, but I personally like it that way. It uses a pie crust as the base, you fill it with a delicious fruit of choice, wrap the edges of the pie crust around the fruit to where it is still exposed and then you bake it to golden brown perfection!

I specifically love this Salted Caramel Apple Galette. It’s perfect for those who aren’t super into pumpkin or sweet potato pies. It has deliciously soft and gooey apples in the middle mixed with cozy spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar. The crust gets crunchy and golden brown thanks to a mixture of egg wash + extra turbinado sugar.

Then HELLOOOOO salted caramel sauce! Feel free to make your own homemade caramel but during the holidays, I’m all about convenience. Hence why I use store-bought caramel sauce. I added flaky sea salt to it. The addition of the salt seriously adds SUCH depth. It is truly amazing.

Lastly, you must always top galettes with either homemade whipped cream or in this case, vanilla ice cream! It completes it perfectly! Let’s get into how to make it!

Ingredients You Need for Salted Caramel Apple Galette: 

  • Wewalka pre-made pie crust 
  • honeycrisp apples 
  • store bought caramel sauce
  • flaky sea salt 
  • cinnamon + nutmeg
  • juice of a lemon 
  • turbinado sugar 
  • cornstarch
  • egg wash 

How to Make Salted Caramel Apple Galette: 

First step is to take your Wewalka pie crust out of the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature for 20 minutes! 

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Slice 2-3 large honeycrisp apples (about 3 cups worth) into thin long slices. Place these in a bowl. To the bowl, add cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, turbinado sugar, and and the juice of half of a lemon (this adds acidity and helps the apples not oxidize aka turn brown!) 

Toss gently, making sure the apples are evenly coated in everything.

Take a large baking pan and roll out the pie crust. Wewalka automatically comes with parchment paper underneath which is AH-mazing! 

Place the apples in the middle of the pie crust, leaving about 1.5 to 2 inches of pie dough to fold over the fruit.

When the apples are placed, take the pie dough and gently fold it over the fruit, pinching the seams each time you fold it to make sure the apples are held inside.

Next, make the egg wash. In a small bowl, gently beat one egg. Brush the outside crust of the pie with the egg wash (don’t over-do it! Just a light brushing) and then sprinkle the outside with turbinado sugar to make it extra crunchy and delicious! 

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.

While it’s baking, mix about ¼ cup of caramel sauce with a few pinches of flaky sea salt. Mix together. Taste and adjust if you want it saltier.

By now, the Salted Caramel Apple Galette should be done baking! Remove from the oven and let it cool for another 15 minutes. 

Add on a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream if desired and enjoy! Pro tip: I sprinkled a little bit of extra salt on top of mine because I absolutely love the idea of salty sweet desserts.

Ingredients

  • 1 Wewalka Pie Crust
  • 3 cups thinly sliced honeycrisp apples
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp turbinado sugar (divided)
  • juice of 1/2 of a lemon
  • 1/4 cup store-bought caramel sauce
  • 1-2 pinches flaky sea salt
  • vanilla ice cream for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425. Remove the Wewalka pie crust from the refrigerator and let it sit out for 20 minutes to come to room temperature. 

  2. Slice the honeycrisp apples thinly and add them to a large bowl. To this bowl, add cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, 1 tbsp turbinado sugar and juice of ½ of a lemon. Mix gently until apples are evenly coated with this mixture. 

  3. Roll the Wewalka pie crust out onto a baking sheet. If you're NOT using a Wewalka pie crust, make sure to roll the pie crust out on parchment paper so it doesn't stick!

  4. Gently place the apples in the middle of the pie crust, leaving 1.5-2 inches of pie crust around the edges available to fold over the apples. 

  5. Take the pie dough and gently fold it over the fruit, pinching the seams each time you fold to make sure the apples are held inside. Gently beat an egg to make the egg wash. Brush the outside crust with the egg wash (be sure not to over-do it! - just a light layer works!) and then sprinkle with 1 tbsp of turbinado sugar. 

  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until crust is golden brown. 

  7. While it is baking, mix ¼ cup of store-bought caramel sauce with a pinch or two of flaky sea salt. Taste and adjust if you want it more salty. 

  8. Once the galette is done baking, remove it from the oven and let it cool for 15 minutes. 

  9. Generously drizzle with the salted caramel sauce and top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! Enjoy! 

Recipe Notes

Feel free to make a homemade caramel sauce and add flaky sea salt to it. 

If not using a Wewalka pie crust, follow baking time instructions on the package of the one you are using 🙂
