Easy as Pie

I needed something warm to go with my Rum Raisin Ice Cream. How about a warm apple galette? If you've never made it before, a galette is kind of like an apple pie~ without the pie plate. I have talked about my bad habit of cheatin' in the kitchen. That little tip makes this 'easy as pie'.

I have some Macadamia Nut Liqueur that a friend brought me back from Hawaii. I'll use that in place of the rum~ bet it will be just as yummy.

Apple Galette
5 tart apples, sliced
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup rum
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 Tbs butter
1 egg
Crust for a 9 inch pie

Soak the raisins in the liqueur (or in rum). Slice the apples and cover with brown sugar. Melt the butter in a skillet and cook the apples and sugar until thickened. Drain the alcohol off the raisins and add them to the apples. Turn off the heat and allow to cool. Roll out the pie crust into a circle (or use a pre-made crust). Spoon the apples into the center of the dough. Fold up the edges of the crust around the apples. Brush with the beaten egg. Bake in a 375° oven for 10-12 minutes.
These can also easily be made into individual servings with smaller rounds of dough. With a scoop of it is the perfect dessert.
Y'all enjoy,

Oh, that looks so good!
I've made something similar with pre-made puff pastry dough.
Great idea about the small individual ones...I think I'll try that!

HI, Sandi, we made it to The Red Bar last night! Didn't do dinner cause we were SO full from Dewey Destin for lunch, but WOW, Kat told me about the apple dumpling with ice cream & that's what I had. With was fantastic! Loved the atmosphere of that place. WE stayed for about an hour & listened to some jazz, then headed back home. Thanks for the suggestion!
