This Apple and Hazelnut Galette is a delicious dessert that is perfect for any occasion. This French-inspired pastry is essentially a free-form tart that is typically made with a buttery, flaky crust and filled with fresh fruit and nuts. The combination of sweet and slightly tart apples with the nutty flavor of hazelnuts creates a perfect balance of flavors and textures that will leave your taste buds wanting more.


Apple and Hazelnut Galette: Extremely Warm and Delicious!


The galette has been around for centuries, and for good reason. It is a rustic dessert that is easy to make and can be enjoyed both warm or at room temperature. The crust is typically made with butter, flour, and sugar, and is rolled out into a thin circle. The filling is then added to the center of the crust, leaving a border around the edges. The edges of the crust are then folded over the filling, creating a rustic, free-form shape.


One of the best things about galettes is that they are incredibly versatile. You can use any type of fruit or nut filling that you like, depending on what is in season or what you have on hand. The combination of apples and hazelnuts is a classic pairing that is both delicious and easy to work with.

How To Make It?


To make an apple and hazelnut galette, start by making the crust. You can use a store-bought pie crust if you prefer, but making your own is easy and will give you a flakier, more flavorful crust. Once the crust is made, roll it out into a thin circle and add your filling. The filling should consist of thinly sliced apples, chopped hazelnuts, sugar, and a pinch of cinnamon. Once the filling is added to the center of the crust, fold the edges of the crust over the filling, leaving a small opening in the center.


Bake the galette in a preheated oven until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling. Let the galette cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving. You can serve the galette with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an extra decadent treat.


Delicious and Perfect!

Let's gather the ingredients!


    • 80 g hazelnuts
    • 2 tbsp powdered sugar
    • 125 g spelt flour
    • 175 g all-purpose flour plus extra for dusting
    • 150 g unsalted butter cold, cubed
    • 1 large egg beaten


    • 50 g light brown sugar plus extra for sprinkling
    • ½ lemon juice and zest
    • ½ tbsp cinnamon ground
    • 1 tbsp corn starch
    • 1 tbsp maple syrup
    • 3 apples peeled, cored, halved and thinly sliced
    • 20 g hazelnuts roughly chopped


    Let's Begin!


      • In a food processor, blitz the hazelnuts and sugar until finely chopped. Add the spelt flour, all-purpose flour, butter, and a good pinch of salt, then blitz again until all of the butter has been incorporated and the mixture is sandy.
      • With the motor running, drizzle in 1-2 tbsp of cold water until the dough starts to form in clumps. Tip the mixture onto your work surface and knead briefly into a ball. Shape into a disc, wrap, and chill for 30 minutes or overnight.


      • In a large bowl, mix the brown sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, cinnamon, corn starch and maple syrup together. Add the apples and toss well. Set aside while you roll out the pastry.

      Let's Assemble!

      • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
      • Dust a sheet of parchment paper large enough to line a large baking tray with flour, then roll the pastry out to circle on top of the parchment. Slide the pastry on its parchment onto the baking tray.
      • Pile the apple slices into the center of the pastry circle using your hands, letting any excess syrup drip back into the bowl as you do. Save the syrup for later. Be sure to leave a clear border around the edge.
      • Use the parchment paper to help you lift the edges of the pastry over the apples, leaving most of the apples exposed. Pinch together any cracks around the edge to make a rustic pastry border.
      • Brush the pastry edge with the beaten egg, sprinkle with a little extra brown sugar, and scatter over the hazelnuts. Bake for 50-55 minutes until golden brown.
      • Meanwhile, pour any leftover syrup from the apples into a small saucepan and bubble for a few minutes until syrupy.
      • When the galette is cooked and still hot, brush the syrup over the top. Leave to cool for at least 30 minutes, then serve warm.
      • Enjoy with family and friends!
