Grab two forks, light some candles, and share this amazingly delicious homemade hot apple pie galette with your Sweetheart this Valentine’s Day.

And while the galette is warm, just before serving, it just has to have vanilla ice cream on top of it.

Here are more desserts served with vanilla ice cream you may like “Easy Desserts Made or Served with Vanilla Ice Cream“.

When making a regular pie, the crust usually gives me grief for one reason or another.

But when making a galette, the “crust” or edges of the dough, are just folded over.

It actually adds a pretty, and more rustic look if the edges aren’t perfectly folded.

Hurray for when imperfection is perfection.  It’s so much less stress that way.

This is such an easy dessert to make but that’s a secret the chef in the house will need to keep.

Just let your Valentine think it took a lot longer to make than it really did.

Sometimes we need the easy recipes that taste really really good to make up for the recipes that don’t taste as great as they should given the time it takes to make them.

Let’s check out the ingredients.

Heart Shaped Apple Pie Galette ingredients

For the Filling – Granny Smith apples, fresh lemon juice, brown sugar, granulated sugar, flour, cinnamon, salt and butter

For the Crust – A premade pie crust, water and an egg (for the egg wash), sanding sugar (or other sugar with large crystals)

A printable recipe with the measurements and instructions is located at the bottom of this post.

Here’s how to make it.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

For the Apple Filling:

Chopped apples on cutting board

Peel the apples and cut the flesh away from the core.

On a cutting board, lay the apples cut-side down and cut them into pieces that are about 1-inch square.

…the pieces of apple are coated with the cinnamon and sugar mixture.

Set small cubes of butter (for the pie filling) aside for just a moment.

For the Pie Dough and Galette:

Heart shaped pie dough on pan

On a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet with sides, lay out the round of pie dough.

With a small sharp knife, cut the round into the shape of a heart.

Reserve the scraps of dough that are left over from making the cuts (to use for a “patch” or “dough extension” when folding the crust over the filling in the top middle section of the heart).

Spoon the apple pie filling on to the middle of the pie dough leaving about 3 inches of empty space from the edges of the dough.

Top the pie filling with small cubes of butter.

Fold the edges of the dough (the part without any filling on it) inwards to form a “heart” around the filling.

At the top of the heart, in the middle, use the scraps of dough to make an extension wide enough to fold dough inwards over the filling.

Pinch a few of the scraps into the existing dough (in the top/middle part of the heart).

Then mold it into an edge that can be folded inwards, evenly with the existing edges of each top side of the heart.

Brush egg wash on apple pie dough

For the Egg Wash – in a small bowl, whisk together the egg and cold water.

Brush the egg wash on the dough.

Right after brushing the egg wash on the dough, sprinkle sanding sugar (or other type sugar with large crystals) on top of the dough (so that it will stick).

Set the galette aside for a moment.

Brown sugar and butter in bowl

For the Streusel – in a small bowl, add flour, brown sugar, butter and salt.

Using a fork, cut the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture turns into small crumbles.

Bake in a preheated oven until the pastry turns a light golden brown (about 33 minutes).

It’s okay if the juice from the apples seeps out of the crust on to the parchment paper while baking.
