January 2017, from our president

When it gets cold outside it feels so good to curl up, retreat, read a rom com or binge watch Netflix. It is also pretty special to invite a friend over, reach out and maybe make a new buddy and have tea and serve a homemade apple galette. I have an easy recipe that looks rustic (aka awkward) and tastes delicious. So put a fake log on the fire and have a nice chat. Winter chill? Bring it on!

Make a friend apple galette

In food processor pulse 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup corn meal, 1/4 cup brown sugar; add 1 stick butter, pulse a few times; add 1 egg, 1 tsp vanilla, pulse. It will become dough! Turn out dough and press into disc shape, cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate 1/2 hour. Turn oven to 400 degrees. Slice 4 apples and/or pears, add 1/4 cup brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Roll out dough onto parchment paper. Transfer to a sheet pan. Add apples to center, fold dough at edge. Bake 45 minutes. Voila!
