French Apple and Almond Galette
1 sheet Shortcrust Pastry
4 Cooking Apples, peeled cored and sliced
1 tsp Lemon Juice
2 tsp Icing Sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon
30g Flaked Almonds
Preheat your oven to 180c / Gas Mark 4.
Take your largest baking sheet, line it with baking paper and place the unrolled pastry on top.
In a large bowl, toss the apples in the lemon juice before adding over the icing sugar and cinnamon (I use a little sieve for this). Tumble the sugar spiced coated apples onto the pastry sheet, keeping them about 2cm /1 inch from the edge.
Fold the edges of the pastry into the apples and sprinkle with the flaked almonds. Bake for 45-50 minutes until the pastry & the almonds are golden and the apples are tender.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool before serving with a generous spoonful of cream or icecream. Sit back and marvel at your creative skills while everybody else thinks that you're a genius...
