This Apple and Brie Galette is a sweet repeat from deep in the archives and part of

a book review with The Novel Bakers from 2014.

It’s worthy of its own post so I’m sharing it again in case you need a quick and easy fall dessert.

Galettes are easy, free-form, rustic tarts made with a single crust of pastry.

You can use refrigerated pie crust or frozen puff pastry to make a quick galette,

or of course your favorite pastry recipe.

Use any variety baking apple such as Braeburn, Honeycrisp, Jonathan / Jonagold, or Granny Smith.

Slice your apples, leaving the peel on to keep it quick and easy, or peel if you prefer.

Top your pie crust with sliced Brie, brown sugar, sliced almonds and cinnamon.

Add thinly sliced apples (peeled or unpeeled).

Drizzle the top with honey, dot with butter, and fold edges over to form your crust.

Brushed the crust with egg wash and sprinkled a little sugar on the pie crust edge.

The pomegranate arils add a bright burst of tart and sweet.

If you don’t want the hassle of peeling a pomegranate, you can find arils

ready to eat in the produce section of most grocery stores this time of year.

    Ahh, the good ole days… Today I went to Vacaville for the first time, I was stunned, 600 square miles burned, we were at the edge of its boundaries, nothing but burned mountains for 50 miles behind us. Every memory flooded back, I was shocked at the steepness since everything is charred to black skeletons.

    My orchard was once such a producer, the inspiration for starting novel bakers with my abundance of pomegranates, figs, and persimmons this time of year, followed up with citrus in December, lemons, limes, blood oranges, each season a bounty… I loved doing the novel bakers because it combined my love of gardening, food, photography and books, seeing your post is heart warming.

    Tomorrow is our anniversary, today I bought figs to make something yummy with champagne, I know I will be making this again too now, I adored this, pomegranates are forever tied to my old house, your beautiful pictures has me flooded with good memories, perfect timing for me while recalling the past with such a deep fondness. One day this new house will be just as fruitful, we have been working hard for its future, just wish I saw your post earlier so I could have grabbed what I needed when out, it does kill me to buy fresh fruit!

    • September 26, 2020 at 6:14 am

      I always think about you when I see pomegranates. How hard it must be to see everything gone, I can’t even imagine. The devastation would make me heartsick and I remember your buckets and buckets of fruit. I hope your new property is as fruitful, judging by this year’s apricot harvest, it will be. :) I keep praying the winds will die down and rain will put out those fires. I have such fond memories of NB but looking back wonder how we did all that work too. Your wonderful FFT posts were the springboard for me to take the blogging plunge. Happy Anniversary to you, I hope you have a wonderful celebration and many more to come. ♥

        Thank you, and the world reaps all your beautiful benefits starting way back then!
