fancy a quick dessert tonight …

a few years ago my dad (may he rest in peace) asked me what fruit trees i’d like in my backyard.  he was going to plant them for me.  for as long as i can remember i have always loved granny smith apples so naturally i asked for a granny smith tree.

fast forward a few years and my dad’s hard work paid off >>

now i have more apples than i know what to do with.

tonight i decided to use some of those apples.  i searched through and found a recipe that looked simple with not a lot of ingredients.  and, most importantly, those ingredients i had.

apple galettes

4 (25 x 25cm) puff pastry sheets
2 large granny smith apples, peeled, thinly sliced
2 tbs melted butter
2 tbs caster sugar
honey, to serve

1. preheat the oven to 180°C
2. cut four 12cm circles from the puff pastry. place on a lightly buttered baking tray.
3. place the apples, overlapping, on top of the pastry. brush with melted butter and sprinkle with sugar.

4. bake for 20-25 minutes until the pastry is crisp and golden. to serve, drizzle with honey.

quick and easy to make! i made them whilst watching the grand final of my kitchen rules.  i’ll be taking these to my mum’s place tomorrow night for the rest of the family to enjoy.

that’s 4 apples used …
