A fancy yet simple version of apple pie. This version was conceived in a Montreal hotel room (with a full kitchen, nonetheless) after being inspired by all the apples at the Marche Jean-Talon. I hope you enjoy this! Why not try adding some raisins, dried cranberries, or even some almonds to the mix. Serve warm with a scoop of good quality vanilla ice cream.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Lay puff pastry onto a round pizza pan.
Mix apples and lemon juice together in a bowl until evenly coated; add sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Toss to evenly coat apples. Spread apple mixture into the center of the puff pastry and fold edges of pastry toward the center. Brush the folded pastry edges with about 1/2 the egg.
Refrigerate pastry-apple mixture for flavors and pastry to settle, about 10 minutes. Brush pastry with remaining 1/2 egg.
Place pan on the top rack of preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes. Give galette a 1/4 turn and lower heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Continue baking until pastry is lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Cool slightly before serving, about 10 minutes.
