Easy Apple Galette

We've all been there. We've all waited until the last minute to get our holiday prep done. Usually, I'm on dessert duty during the holidays because I like to bake (thanks Mommy!) but this year, I've just been so busy that I haven't had a chance to try anything new (like my one-time pumpkin and chocolate pie).

But never fret. I have the perfect easy dessert that has alllll that homemade lovin' behind it. About five/six gala apples and Pillsbury frozen pie crusts work great for this recipe. Heck, you'll even have enough for two. Just make sure you thaw them out beforehand and dust some flour on your countertop or else you're gonna have a really hard time with this dough.

Slice your apples into thin strips and set aside while thawing the pie dough. Once you have those babies sliced, dust your countertop with some flour to prevent the dough from sticking on your counter. Roll out your dough and place the sliced apples in the center, leaving about 1 1/2 inch from the center so we can fold up the ends. Feel free to decorate the apple slices any way you like. I like to keep them together in a puzzle pattern -- but that's just me. Next up, splash in some lemon juice, orange juice, cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar. Roll up the ends so the apples are slightly covered, exposing the center. Dust some eggwash on the crust to hold it together while baking (and give it that nice golden color) and sprinkle on some sugar. POUR SOME SUGAR ON MEEEE. Toss in the oven at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
