'The Kitchn' recently published a recipe for a rustic apple galette. With fall in full swing, fresh apples are widely available. This recipe combines apples and pears to create a tasty fruit tart.

A galette is a flaky pastry topped with fresh fruit. This recipe involves preparing a thin and crispy crust and then topping it with a mixture of apples and pears. The fruit is sweetened with brown sugar and then lightly spiced with a combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, coriander and ginger. Although the fruit needs to lay flat on the pastry, the rustic nature of the dessert means that it does not need to be arranged in a specific design. The end result is a delicious fruit pastry that offers an interesting alternative to pie.

The apple galette is perfect for those who are looking for a different way to use up their apples.
