Apple Season

I am so excited to announce this week is Apple Week! (yes this is my own made up celebratory week, put it on your calendar!)  I usually visit the farmer's market or my local apple orchard at least twice a week in the fall to savor as many delicious apples as I possibly can in a day.  I love getting outdoors, smelling the crisp scent from the apples, and creating new dishes I can enjoy all fall season.

This apple galette is from one of my favorite cooking inspirations, Erin Gleeson from the Forest Feast. I've made this recipe before and every time I ask myself why I don't make it more often.  It's so easy to make, let's you be a little creative with your apple placement, and it tastes like it took all day to make-my kind of dish. 

So have fun with choosing your favorite apples; I used this new flavor Brace's Orchard introduced me to, Zestar, which for me was the perfect combination of my two favorite apples, honey crisp and macintosh.  Pick a good creamy, buttery cheese to create that savory side of the dish and don't feel badly you bought pre-made pie crust (unless you want to get fancy and make you're own crust, you'll have to find your own recipe for that :D ).  And don't worry, even though this week is apple week, I have a feeling I will be continuing the celebration for many more weeks to come.
