Mini Apple galettes (mini manzana galette)

Love apples and galettes, however not all galettes are identical, the word galette come from France.

By definition a galette is simply a flat round cake made of pastry dough or bread, And looks like a rustic pie, so the opennes to creative interpretation  make galettes a culinary masterpiece for all to enjoy.

And that can be either sweet or savory and they can also be made from yeast risen dough like brioche or with a sweet pastry crust.

The fruits used in some types of galettes are typical seasonable and can include apples, or berries such strawberries or blueberries or stone fruits such as peches or plums.

For savory galettes, you can use tomatoes, basil, cheese or zuchinni, spinachs or broccoli.
