Apple Galettes with Walnut Dough

Few weeks ago I made these amazing autumn plum galettes and this week I decided to make classic ones with apples! I buy apples every Saturday at the local farmers market and then decide what to make with all of them. I use apples in pies, crumbles, salads. Today it is apple galettes. I added chopped walnuts into the dough and was delighted by the result!

Apple galettes & Walnut Dough

(makes 8-10 galettes 6-8 cm in diameter)

WALNUT DOUGH:
160 g cold butter (cubed)
4 tbsp sugar
280 g flour
70 g chopped walnuts
1/2 tbsp baking powder
2-3 tbsp ice water

FILLING:
4 medium-sized apples
(300 g when peeled and cut)
2 tbsp brown sugar
3-4 tsp apple jam
+ 1 cup redcurrant or cranberries (optional)

Mix the flour, baking powder, sugar in a big bowl. Add cut butter and rub it  into the flour with a knife and continue rubbing with your fingers very quickly. Add walnuts and water. Knead the galette dough until it is smooth, but not too much. Just make the dough you can roll out. Add some extra flour if needed. Cover the dough with a cling film and set aside for an hour.
Wash and peel the apples. Cut them into slices. Mix apples with sugar and lemon juice in the bowl. Add berries (optional).
Roll out the dough and cut into 2 big circles. Cut each circle into 4 pieces (you will get 8 triangles). Spread each piece with the apple jam, place sliced apples and berries into the centre of each triangle leaving 1-2 cm edges. Fold the edges up around the filling.
Heat the oven to 160 C degrees. Sprinkle the baking tray with flour. Bake galettes for about 30-40 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve warm with hot tea or coffee.

    These look so absolutely yum! I am going apple picking at an orchard for the first time in my life in just a few weeks, and I’ve been planning to make apple galettes. I love the addition of the walnuts in the crust. I am so glad I stumbled across your blog on pinterest!! I’m now following you on instagram and pinterest and look forward to keeping up with your updates.

      Thanks for these sweet words!You’re welcome! About walnuts – it is really amazing idea to add it into a dough. Worth to try!x

    I eat a lot of raw apples, it’s my go to snack, actually. When it comes to cooking with them, I am rather particular to tossing them into a savoury roast!! But I am tempted to try a galette, one of these days, as my first experience with this kind of pie – a mushroom and spinach galette – was disastrous!!

      Try this recipe! I like it! 🙂 Will wait for your experience 🙂 Btw raw apples are the best too. I also adore this salad: spinach+sliced apples+walnuts (or pecans)+blue cheese+olive oil!

        Hmmm, that salad sounds very good except for the blue cheese, as I reaaaallly cannot stomach it 😉 but would try substituting for another cheese, like some portuguese cheese.

          :))) Try any cheese you like! I made this salad with British cheddar, it was very good!

    Your blog is so beautiful!!!!And these galettes sound and look insanely good!I’ve added hazelnuts to the pastry before and I was also surprised how great it tasted!My mum send me some shelled walnuts from Poland the other day so I will definitely try them in a pastry too 🙂

      Thanks!!! These galettes are so good exactly of the walnut dough! It is such a good idea, I’ve really never done this before – I add herbs and seeds into the savoury tarts dough, but not sweet! I start to think about fruit tart with this dough. Should be great 🙂
