Honey Apple Galette

This Honey Apple Galette is basically an easy low sugar apple pie recipe! Making a galette is just like making a pie, but so much easier, plus the crust always crisps up really well. I use minimal sugar and a little bit of honey in this recipe for a summer treat that is light and delicious!

If you love apple pie as much as I do, make sure to check out some of my other favorites like my Honey Lemon Apple Pie, Rustic Sourdough Peach Galette, or my Orange Blossom Honey Apple Pie.

Why You'll Love This Recipe

Easy Low Sugar Apple Pie: You will love this Honey Apple Galette because this is a super easy low sugar apple pie! A galette is basically just a pie without the dish, and it’s baked flat on a baking sheet. This makes it even easier than pie!

Honey + Sugar: I use a mixture of organic cane sugar and honey in this pie, but it has way less sugar than any other apple pie on my site. But, this easy low sugar apple pie is so good you don’t even need anymore sugar!

Light & Sweet: I like to top this one with my Homemade Whipped Cream and some fresh strawberries for a light and sweet dessert that is the perfect complement to any backyard dinner.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

To make the crust: In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the flour and cane sugar.

Step 2

Remove butter from the fridge and chop into small cubes, the smaller your cubes are the flakier your crust. I recommend at least cutting the sticks of butter into 4 and then chop into small cubes from there. Add the cold cubed butter to the flour mixture. Measure out cold water and have ready.

Turn mixer on low and slowly start to incorporate all the ingredients. Gradually turn mixer to medium speed. Once the butter mixture looks like wet sand, immediately add in all the water. As soon as the dough comes together, stop mixer.

Using your hands, form the dough into a disk and place in plastic wrap. Chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Step 3

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 4

Slice the apples, I like to leave skins on, but you can remove if you prefer. Add apples to a large bowl with the cane sugar, honey, flour, cornstarch, and cinnamon and mix together.

Step 5

Remove the pie dough from the fridge. Remove the plastic wrap and place on a floured surface. Roll out the into a square that is ¼-inch thick, it should be about 10 inches diameter.

Transfer the dough to the prepared baking sheet. Add the filling, leaving about a 1-inch boarder around the edge. Fold the extra crust into the middle of the galette to make a boarder.

Step 6

To make the topping: In a small dish, add the honey and water. Microwave for 10 seconds to melt the honey.

Using a pastry brush, brush the crust of the galette with the honey and water. Sprinkle the turbinado sugar on top of the crust.

Step 7

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Allow to cool completely on the baking sheet. (Be sure to check the Notes section for high altitude baking time!)

How to Serve

Serve this with Homemade Whipped Cream and strawberries or vanilla bean ice cream. If you need to reheat this you can do so in the toaster oven, oven, or air fryer. Never reheat any kind of pie in the microwave as it will become soggy.

FAQ's

Do I need a mixer for this recipe?

No, you don't need a mixer for this recipe. While I use a stand mixer to make pie dough, it's just my preference! You can use a mixing bowl and your hands. Read my post All Butter Pie Crust for a more in depth tutorial for making pie dough with and without a mixer.

Can I use a different kind of apple?

Yes! Feel free to use any kind of apples you like. Whatever apples you choose will provide flavor to this galette. So, if you choose a sweet apple like Fuji, Gala, or Pink Lady, you'll have a sweeter galette versus if you choose a more tart apple like Granny Smith.

Can I make this ahead of time?

Yes, you can easily make this the day before a party. Just be sure to store it in a cool dry place. That would be just out on your counter, uncovered. Do not put it in a cake dome as it can become soggy! If you want to reheat it before serving, just place on a baking sheet at 350°F and heat for about 10 minutes until warm in the middle and the crust will crisp up super nicely!

What else can I serve this with?

I love serving this with Homemade Whipped Cream and I even added some fresh strawberries here. You can also serve this with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream!
