Bourbon Soaked Applesauce Galette
Prep Time: 30 min || Bake time: 25-30 min || Serves: 8
What You Need:
- 1 C No Sugar Added Applesauce with Star of Anise (or your favorite store bought brand)
- 1 Puff Pastry (I used President’s Choice Butter Puff Pastry)
- 1/4 C Bourbon
- 1/2 C Golden Raisins
- 1/2 C Halved Pecans
- 1 TB Brown Sugar
- 1 Egg
- 2 tsp Sugar
- 1 TB Butter
- Carmel Sauce ( store bought is just fine)
Pre heat oven to 375 F. Take puff pastry out of the freezer and begin thawing. Soak the golden raisins in bourbon for 20 min. (for a real good soaking you can do this overnight) In a bowl begin combining applesauce, golden raisins (including the un-soaked bourbon), and halved pecans. Roll out puff pastry as designated on its box.
Brush on butter, sprinkle brown sugar on top. Fill with the applesauce mixture in center of your puff pastry, making sure you leave enough room around the edges to fold over the remaining dough. Fold in the remaining dough by taking two in sections. Making sure to move in a clockwise pattern.
Beat egg in bowl. Brush onto the galette’s edges. Sprinkle sugar over areas brushed with egg. Bake for 25- 30 minutes or as directed on the puff pastry box.
When your baked good is done cooking, making sure the puff pastry is nice and flaky as well as golden, drizzle with caramel sauce. Serve warm, or eat your new favorite dessert for breakfast the next morning. No judgement here!
