Apple-Strawberry “Galettes”

This next recipe is a main attraction. Whether you enjoy it for brunch or dessert, this Apple-Strawberry “Galette” is a show stopper! Juicy apples and strawberry jam are baked into buttery croissants and sweetened with maple syrup, brown sugar, and cinnamon. (Serves 4)


  • 2 croissants, halved lengthwise
  • 2 apples, peeled and cubed small
  • 2-3 oz Strawberry jam
  • 4-6 oz butter
  • 2 oz brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp white sugar
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 1 tsp maple syrup (optional)
  • 1 tsp powdered sugar (optional)


  1. First, halve the croissants and cut the apples. 
  2. In a small bowl, combine the apples, strawberry jam, 2 ounces of butter, the brown sugar, 1 tablespoon of cinnamon, maple syrup (if using), lemon zest, and juice. 
  3. Heat a medium-sized skillet over medium-high heat, add another 2 ounces of butter, and then add the apple mixture, stirring occasionally. 
  4. While that’s cooking, melt 2 ounces of butter and lightly brush the inside of the croissant halves, and sprinkle with a mix of the cinnamon and white sugar. 
  5. Lightly toast until the croissants are crispy and the sugar darkens slightly. Set aside.
  6. When the apples are tender and the sauce has thickened, arrange the croissants inside-up and spoon the apple mixture over, taking care to keep as much as you can over the croissant itself. 
  7. Finish with a small sprinkling of powdered sugar for garnish!
