Just lay apple slices on top of ready-rolled puff pastry and your warm apple dessert is ready for eating with a spoonful of low-fat yogurt.

Ingredients

  • 375gpack ready-rolled puff pastry1 egg white, whisked
  • 3 dessert apples (we used Jazz apples), peeled, cored, and each sliced into 16 wedges
  • 15g (½oz) butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp honey, for drizzling
  • Greek yogurt or crème fraîche, to serve
  • For the filling:
  • 45g (1½oz) unsalted butter
  • 3tbsp ground almonds
  • 3tbsp honey, try using Greek honey
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 90g (3oz) toasted flaked almonds (see Sue's tip, right)

Method

  • Set the oven to 220°C or gas mark 7.

  • To make the filling: Soften the butter in a bowl and mix in the ground almonds, honey, egg yolk and flaked almonds.

  • Unroll pastry on to a heavy baking sheet. Trim the edges to make them even. Mark a border 1cm (½in) in all the way round. Prick centre with a fork and brush with egg white.

  • Spread the filling evenly inside the border. Lay the apple slices over the top. Brush lightly with the melted butter and bake for 15 mins.

  • Reduce oven temperature to 200°C or gas mark 6 and bake galette for a further 20-25 mins until golden. Take it out of the oven and drizzle with extra honey. Serve with crème fraîche or Greek yogurt. (Not suitable for freezing).
