Enjoy this gorgeous Apple-Raspberry Galette with Butter Crust as a dessert or teatime treat. Grass-fed butter is used as an omega-3-rich alternative to conventional (grain-fed) butter in the whole-wheat pastry. Kids will love rolling it out—and the forgiving, rustic style of this sweet means it’s fine if the pastry is a little lopsided!
- 1 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour or gluten-free all-purpose flour (with xanthan gum)
- 1 tsp evaporated cane sugar, plus more to garnish
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup unsalted grass-fed butter, cubed and very cold
- 1/4 cup ice water, as needed
- 1 egg, whisked (optional)
- 1 1/2 cups peeled, cored, and cubed apple
- 2 cups fresh or frozen, non-defrosted raspberries
- 2 Tbsp evaporated cane sugar, plus more to garnish
- 1/4 tsp ground cardamom or cinnamon, plus more to garnish
- In food processor, pulse flour, sugar, and salt until combined. Add butter and pulse until only pea-sized pieces of butter remain. Working 1 Tbsp at a time, add ice water, pulsing after each addition, until dough holds together between your fingers. Dump onto piece of parchment paper and form into 2 inch thick disk; wrap and chill for at least 1 hour, until cold.
- In large bowl, toss all filling ingredients together until combined. Mound onto center of rolled pastry, leaving 3 to 4 inch gap around the outside. Fold pastry edges up around filling (it should look very rustic). Brush with egg wash for a shiny coating, if you wish. Lightly dust with cane sugar and some cardamom or cinnamon.
- Bake for 5 minutes. Lower heat to 375 F and bake for 25 to 30 minutes longer, until fruit is bubbling and pastry is beginning to brown. Cool completely on baking sheet. Serve.

When making pastry, place an ice cube in the water to keep it as cold as possible, and add 1 Tbsp water to dough at a time. For ease of rolling, use a well-floured surface or two sheets of parchment paper, rolling from the center out, rotating a quarter turn per roll; this will ensure a more symmetrical circle and uniform thickness.
