The dough

  • 180 grams (6.3 ounces) dry cottage cheese
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 300 grams (10.6 ounces) all-purpose flour
  • 0.5 teaspoon baking powder
  • Jerusalem artichoke syrup, to taste

The filling

  • 3 medium apples
  • Cinnamon, to taste
  • Jerusalem artichoke syrup, to taste


  • Sieve

    Essential for achieving a smooth, lump-free cottage cheese mixture.

  • Mixing Bowls

    Use different sizes for efficient mixing of ingredients.

  • Rolling Pin

    Makes rolling the dough to an even thickness easier.

  • Parchment Paper

    Keeps the dough from sticking and makes for easy transfer to the baking sheet.

  • Baking Sheet

    Choose a sturdy, flat sheet for even baking.

  • Plastic Wrap

    Helps in chilling the dough without drying it out.

  • Pastry Brush

    Handy for brushing syrup over the finished galette.


Step 1

Step 1: Pass the cottage cheese through a sieve, and add the eggs. Gradually mix in the flour until a dough forms. Shape the dough into a ball, wrap it in plastic wrap, and place it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Chilling the dough helps it become more manageable and prevents it from shrinking during baking.

Step 2

Step 2: After the dough has chilled, roll it out on parchment paper with plastic wrap on top to prevent sticking. Rolling out dough between parchment paper and plastic wrap creates less mess and ensures even thickness.

Step 3

Step 3: Arrange the apple slices evenly on the rolled-out dough, sprinkle with cinnamon, and drizzle with Jerusalem artichoke syrup to taste. For even flavor distribution, mix the apples with cinnamon in a bowl before placing them on the dough.

Step 4

Step 4: Fold the edges of the dough over the apples, creating a rustic, free-form shape. Make sure to fold the edges snugly to prevent the filling from leaking out.

Step 5

Step 5: Preheat the oven to 180°C (356°F). Bake the galette for 30-35 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the apples are tender. Check for doneness by inserting a skewer into the apple; it should be soft.

Step 6

Step 6: Before serving, drizzle the finished galette with honey or additional Jerusalem artichoke syrup. Let the galette cool slightly before drizzling to avoid overly soggy crust.

  • Why does my dough crack when I roll it out?

    This often happens if the dough is too cold. Let it sit at room temperature for a few minutes before rolling.

  • Can I use a different type of syrup instead of Jerusalem artichoke syrup?

    Absolutely! Honey, maple syrup, or agave nectar are great alternatives.

  • How can I make the crust more flavorful?

    Add a pinch of salt and a teaspoon of sugar to the dough for an enhanced taste.

  • Can I prepare the dough in advance?

    Yes, you can make the dough a day ahead and keep it chilled in the refrigerator until ready to use.

  • What type of apples are best for this galette?

    Granny Smith apples are ideal due to their tartness, but Honeycrisp or Fuji apples work well too.

  • How do I prevent the bottom crust from becoming soggy?

    Sprinkle a layer of ground nuts or breadcrumbs on the dough before adding the apple filling to absorb excess moisture.
