Galettes are one of my absolute lazy faves these days. I absolutely condone making one’s own pastry (I think it’s worth the effort if you can be bothered and have a recipe here) but Jus-Rol will do just as well in a pinch and makes the fruit the only laborious part of this recipe.
But still, I keep it simple. I used up a collection of older green apples that neither Mr J-M nor I fancied eating on their own. I cored and chopped (skins on) and stewed in water with a little lemon juice (to prevent browning) for around 10 minutes.
I drained the apple, then melted a dollop of vegan butter (I used Vitalite) in a pan along with a generous tablespoon of brown sugar, and a couple of teaspoons of cinnamon. Once melted, I mixed in the apple, and then deposited the whole lovely lot onto a large square of shortcrust pastry.
You then simply fold the edges over, and bake until browned. Voila!
We had ours with Alpro custard and congratulated ourselves on a British Pie Week well celebrated. Hurrah!
How about you, friends? Have you celebrated with a pie this week?
