- flour : 200 g

- unsalted butter : 170 g
- sour cream : 85 ml (not light)
- cheddar cheese : 2 Tbsp (finely grated)
- apple : 4 piece (not too sweet)

- lemon juice : 3 Tbsp
- maple syrup : 1 Tbsp
- minute tapioca : 2 tsp

- egg : 1 piece
Stages of cooking
Start cooking the galette with making pastry dough. To do that, just cut the butter into cubes, take a large bowl and mix flour, salt, butter and sugar in it.
Start kneading the dough, add sour cream and finely grated cheddar cheese. Mix once again.
Knead the dough well and form a ball with your hands. Then make a disk out of the ball. Dredge with flour, wrap into kitchen film and leave in the fridge for about half an hour or more.
Meanwhile, peel and cut the apples into quarters. Put the pieces into a bowl with water and lemon juice to prevent them from discoloring. Pre-heat the oven to 205 C (400 F).
Take the apples from the water and slice them into 4-5 pieces lengthwise. Put them back into lemon water.
Drain apple slices and put them into a bowl. Sprinkle with maple syrup and cinnamon. Add minute tapioca and lemon zest. Toss the apples well.
Now, roll out the dough and put it on a baking pan covered with parchment paper.
Arrange slices of apples on the dough in a circular pattern. They may overlap a bit.
Dredge the galette with grated cheese and fold the edges of the dough.
Take a small bowl and whisk one egg with one teaspoon of water in it. Brush the galette with the egg mixture using a pastry brush. Then dredge with coarse sugar.
Bake in the pre-heated oven for about 10-15 minutes at 205 C (400 F). Then reduce the temperature to 190 C (375 F) and keep baking for about 15-20 minutes more. The apples should be well cooked and the crust should become light brown. Serve warm and enjoy!
