These cute individual apple galettes can easily change from season to season by just switching up the filling. But everyone loves a classic like apples! The pastry is buttery and flaky and the simple apple filling is sweet and juicy. Add homemade caramel sauce to evaluate these apple galettes one step further!


Units Scale


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (113 g) cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup (113 g) vegetable shortening (crisco), cold and cubed
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) ice cold water


  • 45 Spartan apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced

  • Caramel Sauce Recipe


  1. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper (preferably one with edges).
  2. For the pastry – in a large bowl, whisk together flour and salt.
  3. Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut cold butter until coarse crumbs form. Add shortening and continue to cut until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs throughout (you can also use a food processor following the same steps but letting the processor do the work).
  4. Slowly stir in water just until the mixture begins to come together, adding up to 2 tablespoons more water if needed. Do not add too much water! Fold the pastry a few times to bring it together.
  5. Divide pastry into 6 equal sized discs; wrap and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes. 
  6. Preheat oven to 375˚F.
  7. Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, toss together peeled sliced apples, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg (TIP: sprinkle with lemon juice if apples are turning brown).
  8. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out each disc into approx. 6-8-inch circles.
  9. Arrange apples in the centre of the circle leaving approx. an inch and a half of the pastry.
  10. Lift the pastry edge up and over the apples leaving the centre uncovered. Carefully transfer the galettes to your prepared baking sheet.
  11. Using a pastry brush, brush the edges with milk and sprinkle with coarse sugar.
  12. Bake in the bottom third of the oven, until the pastry is golden and the apples are tender, approx. 25 to 30 minutes.
  13. Let the galettes cool slightly on the pan for 5 – 10 minutes.
  14. Drizzle with caramel sauce and serve.


You can make these galettes ahead of time and freeze them up to two months, just reheat the galettes in the oven at 350°F for approx. 10 minutes.
