Rustic Galette (Vegan, Gluten Free)

Pie.  A dessert staple.  Let’s be honest, during the week (who are we kidding, weekends too!) who has time to whip up a beautiful pie?  Why not skip the frills, keep the deliciousness and make this  rustic galette?  And don’t worry about it looking perfect, it’s a rustic dessert.  Short on time, delicious developed flavors.

Galette Crust:

  • 1 1/4 Cups GF flour mix
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 Cup Earth Balance (or any other non-dairy butter)
  • 1 Tablespoon ectract
  • 1/3 cup COLD water
  1. You can form the dough 2 different ways:  mix with a spatula (you don’t want to use your hands too much since you need the dough cool) OR use your hand/stand mixer or food processor.
  2. Once your dough is mixed, cover with plastic and pop it in the fridge for about 10 minutes (or until filling is ready).
  3. Pre-heat your oven to 375 (I used my pizza stone & placed it in oven before preheating).


The beauty of a rustic galette is you can make whatever combinations your heart desires, and it’s a-okay if it’s not the prettiest thing out there (hey, its rustic).  My filling was made with:

  • 5 large organic honey-crisp apples
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 Tablespoons of your favorite GF flour mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 Cup apple cider

Saute your filling until apples (or fruit) are tender and liquid has thickened.

Once oven (and stone if using) is heated:

  1. If you’re using a baking sheet, line with parchment paper
  2. Form your rustic galette with your hands (GF dough is tricky & sticky! you can line a rolling pin with plastic wrap, but I say don’t create more waste! Roll up your sleeves, wash your hands, and form your galette with love!).  I make my galette about 1/4 – 1/3 inch thick.  I formed a lip by pressing the edges up with a knife while gently working the dough out.
  3. Cook your GF galette crust for about 5-7 minutes.  Once the dough just starts to become golden, take the dough out.
  4. Add your filling.  Brush your crust with maple syrup, sprinkle with organic sugar if desired.
  5. Place your galette back in the oven for about 20-25 minutes, until your crust is finished.
  6. Enjoy eating whole!

**OPTIONAL:  Vanilla cashew cream sauce

In a blender combine:

  • 1/2 cup organic cashews
  • 1/4 cup spring water
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup

Blend.  If sauce is too thick, add 1 Tablespoon of water at a time, until the desired consistency is reached.
