Galettes are rustic little free-form pies. They can be easily and quickly assembled and then you can eat them warm out of the oven! Simple, humble, and beautiful.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 4 cups thinly sliced apples
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar, or more to taste
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (9 inch) prepared pie crust (such as Pillsbury®)

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  2. 2 Combine apples, sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, and vanilla extract together in a bowl. Place pie crust on the prepared baking sheet. Spoon apple mixture into the center of crust, leaving a 2-inch border. Fold crust over the edges of the apple mixture.
  3. 3 Bake in the preheated oven until apples are tender and crust is golden, about 30 minutes.

Chef's Notes

Substitute pears or peaches for the apples, if desired. Apple pie spice can be substituted for the cinnamon, if desired; A 1/2 cup of blueberries, blackberries, or raspberries can also be added; If you want extra sparkle, brush the crust with a glaze of 1 egg white, 1 tablespoon water, and then sprinkle a teaspoon sugar over the crust and fruit.


  1. Love this recipe, made it 3 times in 2 days. Easy to make, will try with other fruits soon! We’ve only tried it with apples and my family love it!
  2. Both my husband and I loved it! Followed the recipe exactly. Will definitely make it again.
  3. The recipe worked a treat as it was. I picked this because I had leftover pie dough that wasn't quite enough for a second pie. Otherwise did everything the same. If I were to make it again I would drizzle a little lemon juice over the apples to give a little more acid and dust - Read more ...
  4. Great use of extra fruit... quick and easy... and a little healthier since you only have one crust and not too sweet..
  5. ...really sweet pie but that's just a small tinker. This is a great pie.
  6. This was super easy to prepare with the added benefit of having a little "wow" factor in presentation. It tasted great but if you're looking for a gooey pie filling this is not it. The taste was not too sweet or overly sugary which we appreciated. My family loved it and I would definitely make - Read more ...
  7. I made it with black plums and 1/4 c blueberries. I did not peel the plums but cut them into slices! Yum!
  8. This has become my go-to method for using up fruit of various kinds. We have so much great fruit in our area that it's hard to keep up with it. This is a great option for apples, pears, you name it.
  9. I didn't change anything in this recipe and it came out supper!! It is is easy and quick to make. I will make it again.
