Apple Galette


After a week in Paris, I was very excited to get back to my kitchen and try new recipes. For this dessert, I was inspired by a delicious apple turnover I had on my vacation but wanted to turn it into some sort of pie. I used puff pastry dough and made almond frangipane. Easy, simple and delicious. Specially for this warm weather, I can’t wait to have it with an iced latte!
