My dear friend’s children were recently staying with us. One evening, I asked them what they wanted for dessert and they both said apple pie. I decided to make a more rustic pie by making a galette. I also decided to throw some crumble topping on top of the apple galette for added texture and decoration. The pie smelled heavenly while it baked and tasted wonderful with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. All of the kids loved this apple galette and devoured every bite.
How to Make an Apple Galette with Crumble Topping
Place the apple slices into a bowl and sprinkle the zest, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and cornstarch on top. Gently stir the fruit until the apples are evenly coated.
Place the apple slices in a spiral inside the pie crust starting one inch from the edge. Fold the edge of the dough over the fruit. Brush the dough with the beaten egg. Sprinkle the edges with the raw sugar.
To make the topping, combine the oatmeal, brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter together in a small bowl. Mix well with fingers until crumbly.
Sprinkle crumble mixture along the inner edges of the folded crust and some in the center of the pie.
Place into the oven and for 40-45 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove the galette from the oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes before slicing. Serve plain, with whipped cream, or vanilla ice cream. Enjoy.
