Apple galette/crostada

katecm Oct 20, 2008 02:39 PM

Does anyone have a recipe for a simple apple galette/crostada, a simple crust with sliced apples baked on top? The catch is that I usually see a puff pastry crust or a pie crust, but what I'm looking for is sweeter and soft, and more shortbready. Thanks!

    Here's a galette/crostada I made this summer with berries and peaches. I'm sure that apples would work great--the crust is easy and DELICIOUS!

        The recipe from the Barefoot Contessa (which you can find on the Food Network site) is really good, and easy. Here's a pic of the one I made: http://areyouhungryyet.blogspot.com/2...

          I love this Barefoot Contessa recipe. I am not a baker and with the help of the food processor I find this comes out perfectly every time. I have also successfully made this with the little Italian prune plums...yummy!
