Cinnamon sugar-apple galette — like the traditional pie, but so much easier to make
Some people say the best cooking smell is bacon, others say it's the smell of sautéing onions, but I'm going to have to go with apples and cinnamon baking away in the oven. The smell is intoxicatingly fall and makes me wish the season wasn't so darn short before winter comes and ruins everything.
Fall is pie season, and while I'd love to say, "Sure, I make homemade pies all the time, crusts from scratch," the reality is I have no time for perfect crusts and pie dishes. Galettes are where it's at, people. With their rustic and free-form shape, a little blemish in your pie crust doesn't matter.
Not only is this apple pie galette the perfect fall dessert, but it's also gluten-free. I really love the heartiness the cornmeal brings to the crust, so while you could probably make it with all gluten-free flour, I encourage you to use the cornmeal. Get baking, and enjoy that smell.
