I don’t know too many people that don’t like pie – in fact, I know none. My love for pie is probably just as diverse as the ways it can be made. My favorite pies are apple, peach, coconut cream, and chocolate silk just to name a few! They’re all quite different, yet they all involve a flakey crust.
What’s the difference between a pie and a galette?
A galette and pie are made of the same ingredients in a pie crust. A galette is made on a flat pan surface with the bottom crust folded over the fruit tilling. There is no pie plate or pie tin when making a galette.
Whereas, a pie is made in a deep-dish pie tin or baking dish. This Salted Caramel Apple Galette is like a pie, but much simpler to make. Topped with delicious chopped almonds and a salted caramel drizzle, this pastry will knock your socks off and best of all, no pie plate necessary!
I really enjoy making all types of galette’s and open faced pies. They’re so simple, as I typically go with a basic store-bought, refrigerated pie crust. This means literally unrolling the prepared crust, adding your fruit filling, folding over the sides and baking. It really couldn’t be easier!
How do I make the crust of a galette crisp on top?
Before putting the galette in the oven, I brushed the sides of the crust with an egg white and sprinkle with sugar. With will help the top of the crust become golden brown, tender with a slight crispness.
Once the pastry comes out of the oven, and cools, you can then drizzle the top with caramel sauce. Pretty enough for company or your Thanksgiving dinner, and simple enough for a weeknight at home watching TV.
Served warm, and topped with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream, more caramel sauce and topped with additional chopped almonds, this dessert is incredible. Such an amazing treat that is perfect for fall, or anytime you’re in the mood for apple pie, but don’t want to wait!

Here’s the recipe for my show-stopping Salted Caramel Apple Galette:
- 1- store bought, refrigerated pie crust, thawed
- 3 Tbsp. butter
- 3 medium apples, peeled and sliced
- 1 Tbsp. sugar, plus 1 tsp. more for dusting
- 1 tsp. corn starch
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
- 1 egg white
- 1/4 c. Blue Diamond Salted Caramel Almond, roughly chopped, plus more for serving (if desired)
- 2 Tbsp. salted caramel ice cream topping, plus more for serving (if desired)
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a flat baking or cookie sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Set aside.
- In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium high heat. Reduce heat to medium and add the sliced apples. Saute for about 5 minutes or until apples become soft. Remove pan from heat, and stir in the corn starch, cinnamon and nutmeg to the apples. Let the apples cool for about 10 minutes.
- On the prepared baking sheet, roll out the crust. Add the cooled apple mixture to the center of the crust, leaving a 2" crust border. Top the apples with the chopped almonds. Fold the crust over the apples.
- In a small bowl, briskly whisk the egg white until frothy. Brush the egg white froth over the crust. Sprinkle with 1 tsp. sugar. Bake pastry for 30-35 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool. Just before serving, drizzle with the salted caramel sauce.
