Apple Galette with Butterscotch Sauce

This is a very classic apple galette, but the butterscotch sauce really makes it over-the-top good. I like to make it in advance to let the flavors infuse, which also makes it super easy for a dinner party!

Ingredients
  

Apple Galette

  • 1 9-inch pie crust
  • 1 1/2 lb baking apples, peeled and sliced
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom, ground
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 egg
  • Demerara sugar (optional)

Butterscotch Sauce

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp brandy

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 400* F. Roll out the pie dough until it's 1/8 inch thick. Place in the fridge while you prepare the remaining ingredients.
  • In a medium bowl, toss the apple slices with the lemon juice. Add the sugar, flour, cinnamon, cardamom, allspice, and salt. Toss to combine. Place the apple filling in the center of the pie dough, leaving a two inch rim on all sides. Fold the rim over the apples, ensuring the filling stays inside.
  • Whisk together the egg with 1 Tablespoon of water. Brush the crust with the egg wash, and sprinkle with demerara sugar. Bake for 45-60 minutes.
  • While the galette is baking, combine the butter, dark brown sugar, cream, and salt in a small saucepan. Heat over medium-high, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil, and let it cook for two or three minutes. Remove from heat, and add the vanilla and brandy. It will bubble up, just keep stirring! Let it cool slightly, and store it in a jar. Refrigerate until use (you may have to heat it up before serving).
  • Serve the apple galette warm with ice cream or whipped cream and the butterscotch sauce.

Notes

For a non-boozy version, leave the brandy out of the butterscotch sauce.
Pears are a delicious sub for apples.
