Winni Recipes | Savory Cheese Soufflé


For the pastry:

· 1 cup all-purpose flour

· 1/2 tsp sugar

· Pinch of salt

· 6 tbsp unsalted butter

· 3 tbsp ice cold water

For the filling:

· 5 large Granny Smith apples

· 1 tsp cinnamon

· 1/4 tsp ground cloves

· Pinch of nutmeg

· Juice of half a lime

· 3 tbsp brown sugar

· 1/4 cup toasted pecans

· 1 large egg beaten

For the caramel sauce:

· 1 cup sugar

· 2 tbsp water

· 2 tbsp light corn syrup

· 1 stick unsalted butter

· 1 cup heavy cream


1. Preheat the oven to 380 degrees F. Line a 15 x 10 baking tray with parchment paper.

2. In a bowl add the flour, salt and sugar and mix.

3. Cut the butter into cubes and add half to the flour. Using your fingers rub the butter in the flour until it breaks down and is pea sized.

4. Add the rest of the butter and rub it in. Next add the iced water gradually, mixing with your fingers until the dough comes together in a ball.

5. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and let rest in the refrigerator.

6. Peel and core the apples. Cut into halves and then slice thinly, about a half inch thick.

7. Transfer the slices to a mixing bowl.

8. Add the cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, lime juice and brown sugar. Toss until all the apples are well coated. Let rest for 10 minutes.

9. Retrieve the dough from the fridge and start to roll it out on a well-floured surface. The finished size should be enough to fill a 15 x 10 baking tray.

10. Line the baking tray with parchment paper and roll the dough large enough to cover it. Place it on top of the paper.

11. Lay the apples in a heap in the center of the dough. Pull up about 2 inches of dough on each side making sure not to poke any holes in the dough. Sprinkle the pecans over the apples.

12. Glaze the dough with the beaten egg and sprinkle lightly with some more sugar.

13. Place in the oven and bake for about 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.

14. Place the sugar in a small pan and add the water and corn syrup. Boil over a medium heat until the sugar is a deep amber color.

15. Add the butter and whisk until dissolved. Add the heavy cream and whisk again until the sauce is smooth and shiny. Set aside to cool.

Once the galette is ready, drizzle liberally with the caramel sauce. Serve at once with some whipped cream or ice cream.
