SHF # 5: Hundreds and Hundreds of Layers - Puff Pastry, the 2nd edition: Apple Galette
So I'm just like WAY ahead of ya'll! Like, I kinda did my entry last Friday, m'kay?
Ahem. Or maybe I was just a dofuss and got the dates mixed up and everything, so I accidently posted my entry a week too early. And I could just have taken it down and published it again at a later time, but, as Dagmar agreed with me, there can be no such things as too many Sugar High Fridays, so I just got two, and you only got one! Tee-hee! Gotta work around my goofy-ness, don't I? As was the case for "my last" Sugar High Friday, this one is also hosted by Clement at A La Cuisine!
I threw this one together with the leftovers of my puff pastry for a Friday afternoon treat for me and the Boyfriend. Very simple, but very tasty! And no, I did not get to make my own puff pastry - I did have leftovers but well, life interrupted, as it sometimes does.
(From Spis Med)
1 sheet of puff pastry, cut into squares - mine were about 7 cm by 15 cm
1 egg, beaten, to brush on the puff pastry
1 apple - or as many as it takes for you to make small wedges that will cover the surface of the puff pastry, leaving a 1cm. margin all the way around
Couple tablespoons of sugar, for sprinkling on top
Ribs gele - I'm not quite sure how to translate it, but it is something like redcurrant jelly I think...
So basically, you cut your puff pastry in the desired size - brush with the egg - place the apple wedges on top - sprinkle with sugar - bake in a 200 C hot oven for 15-20 minutes - leave to cool. Melt the jelly in a small saucepan - brush the melted jelly on the cooled "galette" - serve with creme fraiche or sour cream, in my case whipped with vanilla-scented sugar. It's that easy!
Please, have a look-see at the other post - they we're good, too! Now I've shown you mine, let me see yours...
PS: I know the recent comments-thing has gone quite weirdo on me - I'll fix it as soon as possible, Blogger's up-dated their version, I think that's why. Right now, I gotta go to work - no, not the blog-work, the real work - yeah, I actually do have one!;-)
