Dulce de Leche Apple Galette

I have brought a Dulce de Leche Apple Galette for you today, and it's from a recipe by another blogging buddy of mine, Jamie at Love Bakes Good Cakes. She made a Caramel Apple Galette, I loved it immediately, and ended up making it for my family at Thanksgiving. It was a big hit!

I decided to make the galette at the last minute, so I used what I had on hand. I didn't have the caramel sauce that was called for in Jamie's recipe, so I substituted dulce de leche, which is basically just sweetened condensed milk that is cooked until it becomes caramel. You can make your own, but I had a can of it in the pantry. Either way, it is sooo rich and delicious.

Dulce de leche can be found on the international foods aisle. 
I used Nestle brand and borrowed their image.

Do you need a fast and delicious dessert idea? This is it!

Printable Recipe


1 single pie crust (I used my favorite pie crust recipe, or refrigerated is fine)
1 (21 oz.) can apple pie filling (I used Duncan Hines Caramel Apple)
1/2 cup dulce de leche or caramel sauce 


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2If using dulce de leche: open a can of dulce de leche, spoon into a medium bowl and mix with about 4 tablespoons of half and half or milk. Microwave on 15 second intervals, stirring each time, until dulce de leche is at sauce consistency. (You'll have plenty left to drizzle over slices of galette before serving, or you can save it to serve over ice cream!).

3. Unroll pie crust onto a parchment paper lined pizza pan. Spread caramel sauce or dulce de leche evenly over pie crust, leaving about a 3" border around the edges without sauce. Spread pie filling over sauce, again leaving a 3" border. Fold edges of crust over filling.

4. Bake for about 35 to 40 minutes, or until crust is golden. Let cool before serving.

Cook's notes: Love Bakes Good Cakes' recipe stated to bake at 425 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. I baked mine at a lower temp simply because I had some other things in the oven at 375 degrees. It's fine either way. Another thing I love about this recipe- it's flexible!
