Instructions

For the pastry:

  1. In a bowl, stir together the ground pecans and all-purpose flour. Add the butter and rub with your fingers until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Add the water and stir until it comes together into a dough.
  2. Turn out on to a flavoured surface and knead until smooth. Roll out into a 12” (30cm) round and transfer to a lined baking sheet.

For the Galette:

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/ 375°F
  2. In a small pan, melt the butter. Add the Poudre Forte and stir to combine. Remove from the heat.
  3. Arrange the apple slices on the pastry, leaving a 1” (2.5cm) border. Brush the apples with the Poudre forte butter before lifting the dough border up and over the apples, folding where necessary to keep a circular shape.
  4. Brush the pastry crust with the beaten egg. Sprinkle the entire galette with your chosen sugar and place in the oven for 45 – 50 minutes or until the pastry is golden and the apples are cooked and juicy.
  5. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 – 15 minutes before serving.

Notes

  1. I try and keep away from over processed white sugar as much as possible so I decided to use Coconut blossom sugar because it was sitting there in my pantry and I thought, why not!? But feel free to use any sugar you wish, such as brown, muscovado, etc.
  2. This Galette can be made up to three days in advance. Store it at room temperature, in an airtight container, or tightly wrapped in plastic wrap, and reheat it slightly in the oven before serving.
