  1. 1

    In medium bowl, stir together flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, the baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cut in butter, using pastry blender or fork, until mixture looks like coarse crumbs.

Refrigerate about 45 minutes or until dough is firm and cold.

    Heat oven to 425°F. Line large cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper. Using floured rolling pin, roll chilled dough on lightly floured surface to 14-inch circle. Roll up one side of dough onto rolling pin, and carefully place dough on cookie sheet.

Spread remaining almonds onto center of dough to within 2 inches of edge. In medium bowl, mix apples, 1/2 cup sugar and 1/4 teaspoon salt; stir until coated. Spread apple slices on top of almonds. Sprinkle remaining 2 tablespoons almonds on top of apples.

Notes

Galette is French for a free-form tart. It can have savory or sweet filling.

Try topping galette slices with sweetened whipped cream or vanilla ice cream and a sprinkle of toasted almonds.
