Apple Galette with Nut Pastry

  • Yield: 10 servings

Bake out of the ordinary with this nut-infused take on the classic apple pie.



  • 1 cup raw macadamias, almonds, hazelnuts, pine nuts or a mixture, frozen or chilled
  • ¾ cup plain flour
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten, plus one for glaze
  • 2-3 tablespoons chilled water


  • 4 large baking apples, cored and sliced into ¼ inch slices
  • Juice and zest of ½ lemon
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • Pinch of salt


  • ¼ cup rolled oats
  • ¼ cup flour
  • ½ cup chopped pecans, walnuts and/or pistachios
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons soft butter


  1. To make pastry, place the nuts, flour, cornstarch and sugar in a blender and process until nuts are finely ground. Add egg and pulse to combine, then add water in a slow drizzle until mix forms a dough.
  2. Transfer to a floured board and knead gently until smooth.  Cover in plastic wrap and allow to sit in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.  (Pastry can be made a few hours ahead of time).
  3. Place apples and remaining ingredients in a large bowl and mix with hands until apples are thoroughly coated in mixture.
  4. To make crumble, combine oats, flour, nuts, and sugar in a bowl. Cut butter into small pieces and add to mix. Rub in with fingertips until evenly distributed.
  5. Preheat oven to 350°F.  Lay a sheet of parchment on a baking tray.
  6. Roll the dough out to a rough oval to fit tray, about ¼-inch thick.  Carefully lift onto parchment.
  7. Lay apples over pastry, leaving 2-3 inches at edge.  Fold pastry over apples, creating pleats to enclose the filling.  Whisk remaining egg with a teaspoon of water and brush evenly over pastry.
  8. Scatter crumble mixture over apples then transfer to the oven.
  9. Bake 45-55 minutes or until golden brown and caramelized.
