Thanksgiving Dessert in My Hands: Apple Galette

I walked in the door of my parents house, completely exhausted and ready to relax, and within ten minutes my mom hands me a recipe she had snipped from a newspaper (this one) and said, “you’re making this for Thanksgiving.”

I had never made a pie (or galette for that matter) from scratch before so I was really nervous! I thought, what the heck, baking’s all about following instructions, right? How hard could it be?

Turns out: not that hard, actually. My mom was nervous I’d screw it up too, so she made me memorize the recipe and recite it to her (she likes Thanksgiving to be perfect). Anyways, here’s the before and after it went in the oven! It was phenomenal!


It’s supposed to be like an apple pie but a little more rustic-looking. Make sure to pick really tasty apples (I went with Granny Smith)!
