Tasty Tuesdays: Mini Apple Galettes with Honey Walnut Topping

Welcome to Tasty Tuesdays!

I came up with this recipe a few weekends ago and made it for dessert to take to my Mom's house.  We thought it was delicious.  I had just picked up Michigan apples at the market and wanted to find a special way to use them.

- 3 cups sliced apples {I used Macintosh }
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon corn starch
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 egg beaten lightly
- 1 tablespoon sugar {I used turbinado sugar }
- 1/2 pie pastry recipe { my favorite is this one }
- Whipped cream or vanilla ice cream for serving

1.  Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.  Mix apples in medium size bowl with lemon juice, corn starch, Cinnamon, and brown sugar; set aside.  In another bowl, mix walnuts and honey together; set aside.

2.  Roll out pie pastry.  Use a bowl with a 6" diameter to cut six circles.  Place on baking sheet {I use Silpats to line my baking sheets.  Best thing ever! }

3.  Divide apples evenly among pie pastry and place a heaping mound on each circle.  Repeat with walnut/honey mixture.

4.  Fold up the sides of pastry around apples.  Use egg to seal the crimps if necessary.

5.  Brush the pie pastry with egg wash and sprinkle sugar on each.

6.  Bake in oven for 40-50 minutes or until pie crust is golden.  Cool and enjoy!  Best served the day they are made.  Pie crust never tastes the same the second day, does it?

Here they are, fresh out of the oven...

I served with freshly made whipped cream...yum.  Vanilla ice cream would be equally delicious.
