Apple Almond Galette (with Marzipan)

It all begins with a good crust ..

So check out Martha Stewart's recipe here for Pate Brisee

The recipe makes quite a bit of crust so I divided in half and froze one part and divided the remaining half into two disks and then chilled.

Now slice your apples thinly and toss with a bit of sugar (not too much since there is a lot of sugar going on with the marzipan)

Take a small ball of marzipan dough and flatten into a disk (the size of the base of your galette)

Place the marzipan on your rolled out chilled dough and top with all the sliced apples. Fold the edges over pinching to create pleats to keep all the filling in.

Top with sliced almonds and brush the crust with beaten egg.

Bake at 400 for 30 mins. the almonds may get too brown so ten minutes into it I laid a piece of foil on top of them and the rest baked beautifully.
