This apple and cardamom galette with bourbon caramel is an absolute dream! Its one of my favorite things I’ve ever made, its such a delicious mix of tart Granny Smith apples, cardamom, and cinnamon. THEN its drenched in an amazing bourbon caramel, and the combo of bourbon, caramel, apples, cardamom, and pastry is PERFECT.
The key to Perfect Pie Crust
The key to good pie crust is using really cold ingredients. For best results cut the butter into 1/2 inch cubes and freeze before mixing into the flour. I also chill my water and bourbon in the freezer before adding them into the dough.
MIXING PIE CRUST BY HAND VS BY FOOD PROCESSOR
Mixing by hand will always give you a more accurate reading of how much water needs to be added to the flour mixture. However, when you don’t have time or just need it to be easy, use the food processor. Just add a little bit of water at a time and check the dough after each addition. You are looking for a mixture that holds together when squeezed in your palm, but that is still crumbly.
For a galette, you don’t want to load up on tons of things that will make the filling too liquidy, so here it’s just cardamom, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
This apple cardamom galette with bourbon caramel takes a while to bake. You want to make sure that you give your pie crust enough time to bake the bottom thoroughly. No soggy bottoms here! Bake it at 375 for 30-40 minutes until golden brown.
