Autumn apple galette with tons of chai spice flavor and tender apples on a golden puff pastry crust.



  • 1 puff pastry sheet, homemade or store bought, thawed
  • 1 1/2 lbs apples (I used half granny smith and half pink lady apples), halved, cored and thinly sliced (mine are at about 1/8 inch thickness)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons golden brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground fennel
  • 1/8 tsp ground clove
  • Pinch of ground black pepper
  • Pinch of sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400˚F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and lightly dust with flour.
  2. Place puff pastry sheet on top of the dusted paper. Being careful not to cut completely through the pastry, slice a 1/2 inch edge all the way round.
  3. Add apple slices to a large bowl. Stir in all remaining ingredients until apples are coated.
  4. Arrange apples as desired on puff pastry, leaving the 1/2 inch edge bare. Fold edging up around apples and crimp as desired.
  5. Bake for 30-35 minutes until apples are tender and puff pastry is golden. Remove from heat and let cool for 5 minutes before serving. Top with vanilla ice cream and finishing salt to garnish.
