1 cup all-purpose flour
Ingredient Line: 
½ cup whole-wheat flour
Ingredient Line: 
⅓ cup sugar
Ingredient Line: 
1 tsp. finely grated lemon zest
Ingredient Line: 
¼ tsp. baking powder

¼ tsp. salt

FILLING

Ingredients: 

Ingredient Line: 
1 cup slivered blanched almonds
Ingredient Line: 
1 large egg
Ingredient Line: 
½ tsp. almond extract
Ingredient Line: 
2 tart, firm apples, such as Granny Smith, peeled, cored, and sliced ¼ inch thick
Ingredient Line: 
3 Tbs. apricot jam

Instructions: 

1. To make Dough: Pulse flours, sugar, lemon zest, baking powder, and salt in food processor until combined. Add butter, and pulse until mixture looks like coarse meal. With food processor running, add up to 1/4 cup cold water until dough just comes together. Shape dough into ball. Wrap in plastic wrap, and chill 1 hour, or overnight.

2. To make Filling: Pulse almonds and confectioners’ sugar in food processor until combined. Add egg and almond extract, and process 1 minute, or until mixture is paste-like and nearly smooth.

3. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheet with foil.

4. Remove Dough from refrigerator, and unwrap, leaving plastic wrap beneath Dough. Place another sheet of plastic wrap on top of Dough. Roll Dough out into 9-inch square between sheets of plastic wrap. Remove top sheet of plastic wrap, invert Dough onto prepared baking sheet, and remove remaining sheet of plastic wrap. Spread almond mixture over Dough square, then top with 4 rows of overlapping apple slices, covering entire surface of galette. Bake 45 minutes, or until crust is golden.

5. Warm jam in small saucepan over low heat until melted. Strain through fine mesh strainer into small dish.

6. Cool galette 5 minutes, then brush with jam. Cut into 9 squares.
