Recipe Box, Apple, Pear, & Walnut Galette

Galettes are one of my go to favorites


This one is perfect for September and thoughts of Fall


Yummmmmy caramelized onions …


A tasty base for freshly sliced apples and pears


You can make a fancy arrangement or just toss them on


I did a combo of slices and chopped apples

Now comes the good part, walnuts and gorgonzola!

If you’re not bleu cheese lover, sub sharp cheddar

gorgonzola topped fruit galette

Now fold in the edges


Brush the dough with an egg wash

so it bakes up pretty and golden

Serve as an appetizer, side dish or main dish
