Quick Apple Galette

I recently got a new baking stone, courtesy of Capital City Granite, and I wanted to test it on something unique. I could have tossed a pizza on it, or tried biscuits, but I wanted something fun and a little original.

Apples have been on sale a lot recently, so I decided a galette would be a great way to go. A galette is basically a pie baked flat with the filling folded inside, instead of in a pie plate. It’s a simple pastry that gets a lot of points for its rustic charm. This is a perfect dessert for when you need to impress without a lot of time.

While this one is apple with a bacon pepper jam glaze, you can customize this one in a lot of ways. You can also try strawberries with kiwis, or peaches.
