🍎Cinnamon Apple Galette Recipe

It’s apple season and I would love to attempt to make this beautiful Cinnamon Apple Galette for desert!! So beautiful!! 🍎👩‍🍳🍏 
For the pastry:
½ cup whole raw almonds
1 ¼ cup all purpose flour
2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
½ teaspoon salt
1 egg yolk
8 Tablespoons (1 stick) cold unsalted butter
3-4 Tablespoons cold water

For the filling:
2 large apples (such as honeycrisp, braeburn or gala)
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
½ cup Apple Cider Jam(Pick Your Jar up at Bonnes Amies Kitchen)
2 Tablespoons milk or cream
1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

For the pastry dough:
Grind the almonds in a food processor until it is mostly fine (some large chunks are ok)
Add the flour, sugar and salt. Pulse until it is well incorporated.
Cut the cold butter into small squares and add to the food processor. Pulse until it creates a sand like consistency.
Add the egg yolk and pulse to combine. Then, add the water 1 tablespoon at a time, while the food processor is running, until the dough comes together. Turn out onto a lightly floured board, pat into a disc, wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
For the Galette:
Preheat oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Slice the apples into 1/8-1/4” slices (do not peel the apples). Toss in a large bowl with cornstarch and brown sugar.
Remove pastry dough from refrigerator. Cut into 6 small triangles (or you can leave as is if you are making one large galette). On a lightly floured surface, roll each into a small ball, and then with a rolling pin, roll into a flat, ¼” thick circle. It is ok if this is very rough in shape and the edges are jagged. This will add to the rustic look of the tart.
Spread each circle with 2 Tablespoons Apple Cider Jam leaving the outer inch empty. Place the apple slices evenly across the jam. Fold the tart dough over the outer edge of the apples and pinch together as needed. Repeat with other tarts and place on the prepared baking sheet. Place back in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl mix together the sugar and cinnamon.
Remove from refrigerator and brush the edges with cream. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until crusts have browned and the interior is bubbling. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.
OK, we admit it. This may be one of our favorite products. Made with a luscious variety of ripe, juicy apples, tart apple cider and aromatic spices, it's like a delicious homemade apple pie without the crust! It's fantastic on its own, spread on flaky croissants or used in recipes with pork chops or chicken. We love it and we hope you do too!
It's like biting into a delicious, homemade apple pie!
