Thermomix Apple Gallette

This rustic Apple Gallette is a cross between a pie and a tart.  It’s really easy to make and I love the fact that it doesn’t have to look perfect!  I’ve cut my apples into cubes but you could always thinly slice them and arrange them neatly (if you’re on Pinterest there are many images for inspiration!).

I’ve used my tried and tested Sweet Shortcrust Pastry recipe as the base as I know it won’t fail.

To make the Apple Filling

Peel and chop the apples into 1-2cm cubes, toss with the orange zest, sugar, mixed spice and vanilla extract.

Apple Filling for Gallettte

Roll the pastry into a rough circle about 30cm (it doesn’t have to be perfect).  Spoon the apple filling in a single layer leaving a border of about 3cm.  Fold over the pastry and pinch together with your fingers every 3-4 cm – it will look like a shower cap!  Brush the edges with egg wash and dot a few cubes of the butter over the top. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes until the edges are golden.

This lovely Apple Gallette is best served warm from the oven with some cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.

  • 1 orange, grated zest only
  • 1 tablespoon caster or granulated sugar
  • 15g chilled butter, cut up into small cubes
  • egg wash for brushing

Instructions

To make the Pastry

  1. Place the flour, butter, icing sugar and salt into the mixing bowl and mix 10 sec/speed 6. The mixture should resemble breadcrumbs.
  2. Add the water and knead 50-60 sec/Interval speed. The pastry should now have come together.
  3. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently into a ball. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate whilst you prepare the apple filling.

To make the Apple Filling

  1. Preheat oven to 190° C (170°C fan forced) and line a large baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Peel and core the apples and cut into 1-2cm cubes.
  3. Place into a bowl and toss in the orange zest, sugar, vanilla and mixed spice and give it a good stir.  Put the bowl aside whilst you prepare the pastry.
  4. Take the pastry out of fridge, roll into a circle until its roughly 30 cm in diameter.
  5. Place onto a large baking sheet lined with baking paper.
  6. Arrange the apple filling in a single layer over the pastry, leaving a 3-4cm border around the edges.
  7. Lift the pastry dough over the apples and pinch together with your fingers every 3-4cm.  It doesn’t have to look perfect!
  8. Brush the edges with egg wash and dot the apple filling with butter and bake in the oven for 40 minutes until the outside crust is a lovely golden brown colour.
  9. Serve warm with cream and ice cream.
