  • 1 ½ cups gluten free flour blend * see note
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter * see note
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ¼ cup water

Apple Filling

  • 2 ¼ cups apple slices peeling optional
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter unsalted
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

Egg Wash

  • 1 egg for brushing on crust


  • Preheat the oven to 350º F.
  • In a large bowl, add flour and salt. Mix well.
  • Add cold butter and use a pastry blender to cut in the butter. 
  • Add the egg, lemon juice, and water. Mix well until it forms a dough ball.
  • Place the dough on a piece of wax paper. Cover with another piece of wax paper.
  • Use a rolling pin to roll into a flat circle about ¼-1/2  inch thick.
  • Press the crust into a cast iron skillet. If you don't have a skillet, put the dough on a cookie sheet.
  • Combine the melted butter, honey, cinnamon, and apples. Mix well. Pour the apple mixture in the middle of the crust.
  • Fold the crust over and pinch to seal edges. 
  • Brush mixed egg onto the top of the crust. (Don't put on the apple mixture.)
  • Bake for 30 minutes until apples are cooked and crust is golden.


  1. I have tested this recipe with King Arthur Measure for Measure GF and Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 GF blend. That doesn't mean others will not work, I just have not tested other flours.
  2. If your gluten free flour blend doesn’t contain xanthan gum or guar gum, please add 1 teaspoon.
  3. To make this recipe dairy-free, substitute the butter for vegan butter.
  4. I recommend using semi-tart apples like Pink Lady or Granny Smith.
  5. This galette will keep up to 4 days in an air-tight container.
