  1. Arrange 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  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.
  4. Slowly stir in water just until mixture begins to come together, adding up to 2 tablespoons more water if needed. Do not add too much water! Fold pastry a few times to bring together.
  5. Divide pastry into 6 equal sized discs; wrap and refrigerate for 20 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 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 pastry.
  10. Lift pastry edge up and over the apples leaving the centre uncovered.
  11. Using a pastry brush, brush the edges with milk and sprinkle with coarse sugar.
  12. Bake in bottom third of the oven, until pastry is golden and 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.
