Apple Spice Galette

A great holiday treat that cuts down on refined sugar and that’s great on taste is a fruit galette made with fresh or frozen fruit and no white sugar. It’s excellent as a dessert, on its own, or with a dollop of vanilla coconut ice cream or whipped cream.

Apple Spice Galette


  • 4 c. peeled and sliced sweet apples
  • 1/2 juice from 1/2 freshly squeezed lemon
  • 2 tsp. lemon extract
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. allspice
  • 1/2 tsp. ginger
  • 3/4 c. raisins (or combination of raisins and dried cranberries)
  • 1/2 c. candied pecans, chopped
  • 1 organic, pastry pie crust


  • In a large bowl, add in apples, lemon juice, extract, spices, raisins, and pecans. Mix.
  • On a cookie sheet, place parchment paper.
  • With a pencil, measure parchment paper to cover the bottom of the cookie sheet and cut paper with a scissor.
  • Spray parchment paper with a bit of coconut oil spray.
  • Roll out the pie shell in its wrap, and smooth out the wrinkles with a rolliing pin.
  • Peel off the dough's top layer of paper and place face down on the parchment paper.
  • In the center of the dough, place the apple mixture in a mound.
  • Fold the edges of the dough over themselves around the fruit center.
  • Bake galette in the oven at 350 degrees F for 35-40 minutes. Apples will be soft and the crust will be a slight golden brown.


Serve galette warm by itself, with a dollop of vanilla coconut ice cream or another favorite topping to your liking.
