Apple galette with children

For the galette ( a flat round cake of variable size) pastry
1 1/2 c flour
1/2 t salt
1 stick cold butter
4 T ice water
1-2 T raw sugar

Mix flour and salt in mixer. Add chunks of cold butter to mixer a few at a time. Gradually add ice water until dough begins to clump together slightly.

Gather dough into small balls & flatten into circular disks. Chill in refrigerator, while you make the filling.

For filling:
4-5 apples, chopped
3 T brown sugar
1/4 c flour
2 t cinnamon

Mix dry ingredients, then mix in apples.

Bring out chilled dough. Add heaping spoonfuls of apples to center of circular dough disks. Fold ends inward, leaving center exposed. Brush dough with milk & sprinkle raw sugar on top.

Cook at 450 for 20 minutes until pastry browns.

Yum. Yum. We made our apple galette with whole wheat flour and topped with some homemade whip cream. My little one loved making the whip cream.
