• 1 lb (600g) store bought puff pastry dough
  • 7½ oz (215g) marzipan
  • 8 small tart apples, thinly sliced
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • Confectioners sugar for dusting
  1. On a floured surface, roll out half the pastry to a 14 inch square and about ⅛ of an inch. Use a 6 inch round plate to cut 4 rounds.
  2. Place them on a baking sheet lightly sprinkled with water.
  3. Make for more rounds with the remaining dough and place them on another baking sheet. Prick with a fork avoiding edges. Chill for 15 minutes.
  4. Cut the marzipan into 8 equal portions and roll them into balls.
  5. Set one of the marzipan balls between two sheets of parchment paper and roll out to a 5 inch circle. Place on top of a pastry round and repeat with remaining marzipan. Chill for another 15 minutes.
  6. Preheat oven to 425F. Toss the apples in lemon juice and arrange them over the marzipan in a spiral overlapping circle.
  7. Note: I didn't have marzipan so I used a fruit preserve.
  8. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes until the edges have risen. Sprinkle the apples with sugar and return Galettes to the oven.
  9. Bake another 5 - 10 minutes.
  10. Dust with confectioners sugar and serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream if desired.
