Nutrition Profile:


  • 2 prepared pie crusts (14- to 16-ounce package), thawed if frozen

  • Flour for dusting

  • ¼ cup unsweetened apple butter

  • 2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard

  • 2 medium apples, sliced 1/8 inch thick

  • 3 slices deli ham (3 ounces total), each cut into 6 pieces

  • 6 tablespoons finely shredded Gruyère cheese

  • 2 teaspoons coarsely chopped fresh thyme, plus more for garnish

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 tablespoon water


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

  2. Place one pie crust on a lightly floured surface. Dust with flour and roll into a 12-inch circle. Cut two 6-inch rounds from the crust. Gather the dough scraps into a ball and roll out into a 6-inch round. Repeat with the remaining crust, for a total of 6 rounds.

  3. Combine apple butter and mustard in a small bowl. Spread 1 tablespoon on each crust, leaving a 1-inch border. Arrange apple and ham slices decoratively on top. Sprinkle each with some Gruyère, thyme and pepper. Fold the sides of the dough up over the edge of the filling. Transfer to the prepared pan. Whisk egg and water in a small bowl and brush the edges of the galettes with it.

  4. Bake the galettes until the apples are tender and the crusts are a deep golden brown, about 30 minutes. Garnish with more thyme, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
