Apple Galette with Cranberries
Serve as is or topped with caramel sauce and/or ice cream.
2 pounds Golden Delicious apples (4 large apples)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1 ready-to-bake prepared crust, such as Pillsbury
1 egg, lightly beaten
- Preheat the oven to 425. Coat a baking sheet pan with cooking spray.
- Peel the apples and cut into thin slices. Toss with the cinnamon, sugar, lemon juice and cranberries.
- Roll the crust out on a floured surface to a diameter of 12 to 13 inches. Transfer to the baking sheet pan. Leaving a 2-inch perimeter free, place the apple mixture on the crust. Fold the edges in over the apple, pleating the crust as you go.
- Brush the egg over the pie crust dough and bake in the center of the oven until the crust is golden and sounds hollow when tapped, about 25 minutes. Let cool before serving.
