After feeling inspired by a video we saw online, we decided to go out in pursuit of what we believe to be the ultimate apple galette.
Although we have already shared some of our favorite galette recipes, like the Apple and Blueberry Galette or the Quince and Apple Galette, this recipe has some twists that make it extra special. First, it has the perfect size for two people, making it ideal for sharing with a loved one or a good friend, and second, it has a reduction of apple cider for a more complex flavor.
If you want to make this recipe for more people, it's super simple — you just have to use a bigger dough cutter and use more apples. The quantity of dough in this recipe is enough to make 3 20 cm (8-inch) galettes.
225 g (1¾ cups) all-purpose flour
15 g (1 tablespoon) white granulated sugar
12 g (1½ teaspoons) fine sea salt
225 g (2 sticks) cold unsalted butter, cut into 1 cm (1/2-inch) cubes
125 g (½ cup) cold water
2 medium apples, about 370 g (13 oz), such as Braeburn, Granny Smith, and/or Honey Crisp
30 g (2 tablespoons) demerara sugar
30 g (2 tabesppons) butter, melted
200 g (7 oz) cider
