Butterscotch Apple Mini Galettes

We’re talking personal pies. Flat little freeform pies that are full of charm. They’re casual and fancy at the same time. And you can make them with all kinds of fillings. But today we are all about apples bathed in butterscotch. I’m not complaining.
The recipe for these is from my friends, Todd and Diane’s new cookbook, Bountiful . The recipes inside are inspired by the things they grow in their garden. It’s an absolutely beautiful book, but that’s a given with these two. They are amazing photographers and videographers. You may remember that I worked with them  last year on a fun little holiday video . But, If you aren’t familiar, check out the White on Rice Couple  Blog for more of their beautiful recipes.
Okay … Galettes! Let’s go.
Butterscotch sauce ingredients: sugars, butter, heavy cream, vanilla, scotch and salt. P.S. Yay for heavy cream and brown sugar.
Because it all comes together to make glorious butterscotch sauce.
And you can kick it up a notch with a little scotch. Like my airline size bottle? If I bought anything bigger, it would most likely just go to waste.
Filling ingredients: Apples, apples, apples and a little sugar, flour and lemon juice.
Peel, core and slice those babies so they are nice and thin.
Then we’re on to the pie crust.
Prepare the dough and divide into four small discs.
Roll it out into an 8 inch circle. Use a cake pan pressed in the dough as a guide if you want a more perfects. Then just cut off the excess.
Fill the center with apples and spoon on the sauce.
Then just fold the edges, creasing as you go and bake until golden brown.
And dress them up a little bit if you want, too. I used these cute little leaf pie crust cutters  I found at Williams-Sonoma.
Now normally I would lather something like this up with ice cream because you know fruit isn’t my first choice in a dessert, but after the first bite – oh my…so good – it didn’t need anything else.
Hope you enjoy and don’t forget to check out Bountiful . It’s beautiful.
