Chocolate and Caramel Apple Pie Galette

Desserts

Now, don’t let the word Galette scare you….it is a French word that simply means…various types of flat, round or freeform crusty cakes.  This beautiful apple dessert couldn’t be easier and boy is it pretty.  We are FINALLY back to school here in CA.  Can I get a woot woot please?!  The boys are enjoying their classes and teachers, so mama is happy!

I LOVE the fall flavors of apples and cinnamon then toss on some chocolate and caramel…..I think I’ve died and gone to heaven :)  Hope you will all enjoy this simple yet completely impressive and scrumptious “freeform” little pie.  Take a peek!

Here’s your trusty line up of ingredients :)

Dice 2 nice apples

Brown a few Tablespoons of butter…

….and throw in your diced apples, brown sugar and cinnamon.

Pour onto center of rolled pie dough…

quarter a handful of Rolo’s…

Place on top of apples….

Now the fun part….folding your dough edges.  Don’t worry too much about this part.  Do the best you can, it even looks good when it’s not perfect :)  You basically pick up a piece of dough and fold it over.  Do this around the entire circle of dough.

Chocolate and Caramel Apple Pie Galette

3 Tablespoons butter

2 apples of choice peeled and diced

3 Tablespoons light brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 roll Pillsbury pie dough

5 Rolo chocolate caramels, unwrapped and quartered

Powdered sugar for dusting

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Place butter into a medium saucepan over medium heat.  When melted add diced apples, brown sugar and cinnamon.  Cook and stir for 5 minutes or until softened.

2.  Roll out pie dough then pour cooked apples in center of dough leaving a 1 1/2 inch border around edges.  Top with quartered Rolo’s then take edges of pie dough and fold over to create a pleated edge.

3.  Bake for 30-35 minutes or until pie edges are golden brown.  Remove and let cool completely.  Before serving dust with powdered sugar.

8 servings

    This look so yummy, love it!! My little boy started kindergarten this year, and I guess they have been learning about apples. He came home and told me that we need to bake an apple pie….so this recipe would be perfect for us to bake together.

    We made this last night and it was delicious! I piled my apples too high in the middle, need to spread them around more like you did next time :) Making 2 more tonight while I have a get together, hubby asked for a few more rolos mixed in….he thought they were amazing!

  25. 25

    That is such a cute photo of your boys. This galette looks AMAZING!! It is so funny how the name can be intimidating….but in actuality it is simple to prepare. Fun choice to go with the Rolo’s! xo

    ps – how do you do the cool scrapbooking type feature next to the photo of the boys?

    Made this last night! VERY good!!!! I added a little more chocolate than what was in your recipe ~ what can I say I like chocolate!! ; )
    I think next time I may try making this recipe w/ snickers candy bars instead of the rolos for an apple, peanut butter, chocolate taste! Just a thought!!!! VERY good, we ate every last bite!!!

  36. 36

    Your boys couldn’t be cuter! This galette is pure evil…and I mean that in the best way possible.

    Shannon Jones says:

    This recipe looks lovely and perfect for a little easy “gift treat”! I was wondering what you baked the Galette on? It looks like you constructed it on a backing mat but then under the Galette it looks like some kind of paper and a wood board? Would love to hear your baking tools list. What works best for what kind of baked item.hmmm maybe a whole post on the subject.
    Thanks for sharing so sweetly.

    This looked so good I had to make it. I was NOT disappointed. Was very good, very easy and quick to prepare. A great warm, comfy dessert that was really good! Thanks for posting.

    Jenn says:

    I made this delicious galette last week for my extended family. Since then, I’ve made it twice more for friends and then my husband requested one for just us! It’s so yummy! I did use a few more Rolos (per my husband’s request) and it turned out great! Tonight, we only had one apple on hand so I threw in a handful of pecans with the apples to cook in the brown sugar/cinnamon mix. Then, some mini marshmellows at the same time as the Rolos. The result? So. So. Good. :)

    Linzie says:

    So very good, yet again! I made this tonight for a dinner party and I don’t even like cooked apples, but YUMMIE!!! I did have to add a few extra rolo’s, not that it needed them, I’m just a rolo fan ;0)
