World’s Easiest Apple Galette


Looks shmancy. Sounds shmancy.  But I swear this is one of the easiest desserts you’ll ever make.  What is a galette? It’s basically a lazy pie.


This is perfect for any leftover scraps of phyllo dough or pie crust you may have from other recipes too!


I went with an apple pie inspiration, but the possibilities are endless! You can make any size or shape, and sub in any other fillings sweet or savory. Try other fruit(s) or jams, nutella, veggies & goat cheese – you get the idea. Go nuts. And while you’re at it, nuts make for a great topper too.


4 ingredients, 30 mins.  Les’ do it.
