Celebrate autumn with a rustic open-faced galette

Apple Gallette

Fall announces itself with a hint of coolness in the air and late afternoon's golden light, but its best harbinger is the sudden profusion of juicy apples ― pale green, russet, and every color in between. We especially love unusual varieties grown in the West, like Gravenstein and Pink Lady. This new harvest piled up in farmers' markets in early fall turns our thoughts to baking. A free-form galette, rich with caramel and walnuts, is an easy and delicious way to mark the changing of the seasons.
