The Pie Project: mini apple and honey galettes

Recipe adapted from

I’m not going to lie: I am very much enjoying this easy, ready-made pastry thing.

As much as I love the measuring, the mixing, the folding, the chilling and the rolling of homemade pastry (okay most of the time I hate it, but when it turns out well it’s flipping great), ready-made is a lifesaver when you’re not in the mood. So naturally, these little galettes are as easy as pie (hahahahahahaha). Not only is the pastry already done for you, but there are literally only four other ingredients. Four! They’re not even hard ingredients. Apple, butter, sugar, and honey. Sounds like a winning combination, huh? You’d be right.

PLUS this excellent, super easy recipe ends with honey. Glorious, delicious honey, which means I finally get to use my new honey stick thingy! Honey dipper? Honey drizzler? I’ve heard it described a whole bunch of different ways, but ‘honey stick thingy’ seems to do the trick well enough. It was a Christmas present from my lovely mumma after I’d been on the hunt for one for months, and then it takes me a whole six months to finally use the thing. Whoops.

Anywho — galettes! The recipe is below, or you can find the original over on


1 (25 x 25cm) sheet of puff pastry
2 large Granny Smith apples, peeled, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons melted butter
2 tablespoons caster sugar
Honey, to serve

Step 1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Step 2. Cut four 12cm circles from the puff pastry. Place on a lightly buttered baking tray.
Step 3. Place the apples, overlapping, on top of the pastry. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with sugar.
Step 4. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the pastry is crisp and golden. To serve, drizzle with honey.
