What galette is

It is french rustic pie filled with lots of fruit, you can use any fruit you like. I always prefer season fruit , because it is always more fresh and local. For this galette I use apples because it is apple season and it is my favorite fruit for galette.

Few notes to the recipe:

The batter for galette is easy to make. I usually make the batter day before I make a pie because the butter needs to rest at least one hour, but it is better to let it rest overnight. But you can also make this batter a store it in freezer for 1 month or in the fridge for a few days.

And then you just take the batter and make a galette.
