She is one of my blogger friends that inspire me, she has a love of history and that shows in her vintage recipes. Which are near and dear to my heart as well.

Hi, Everyone! I'm Joy from Yesterfood, where I blog about recipes and cooking. I especially enjoy vintage recipes and old cook books- they hold a special place in my heart. I love how cooking connects us to each other and to the past, and now to you!
I am so happy to be guest posting with Dawn here at Spatulas on Parade. Dawn is one of the first ladies I met when I first started blogging, and I have enjoyed her writing and recipes ever since. I have brought a Dulce de Leche Apple Galette for you today, and it's from a recipe by another blogging buddy of mine, Jamie at Love Bakes Good Cakes. She made a Caramel Apple Galette, I loved it immediately, and ended up making it for my family at Thanksgiving. It was a big hit!

I decided to make the galette at the last minute, so I used what I had on hand. I didn't have the caramel sauce that was called for in Jamie's recipe, so I substituted dulce de leche, which is basically just sweetened condensed milk that is cooked until it becomes caramel. You can make your own (Dawn shows you how, here) but this time, I had a can of it in the pantry. Either way, it is sooo rich and delicious.

Dulce de leche can be found on the international foods aisle. 
I used Nestle brand and borrowed their image.
Do you need a fast and delicious dessert idea for the holidays? This is it!   Dulce de Leche Apple Galette Printable Recipe Ingredients: 1 single pie crust (I used my favorite pie crust recipe, or refrigerated is fine) 1 (21 oz.) can apple pie filling (I used Duncan Hines Caramel Apple) 1/2 cup dulce de leche or caramel sauce  Directions: 1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 2. If using dulce de leche: open a can of dulce de leche, spoon into a medium bowl and mix with about 4 tablespoons of half and half or milk. Microwave on 15 second intervals, stirring each time, until dulce de leche is at sauce consistency. (You'll have plenty left to drizzle over slices of galette before serving, or you can save it to serve over ice cream!). 3. Unroll pie crust onto a parchment paper lined pizza pan. Spread caramel sauce or dulce de leche evenly over pie crust, leaving about a 3" border around the edges without sauce. Spread pie filling over sauce, again leaving a 3" border. Fold edges of crust over filling. 4. Bake for about 35 to 40 minutes, or until crust is golden. Let cool before serving. Cook's notes: Love Bakes Good Cakes' recipe stated to bake at 425 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. I baked mine at a lower temp simply because I had some other things in the oven at 375 degrees. It's fine either way. Another thing I love about this recipe- it's flexible! Recipe adapted from Love Bakes Good Cakes' Caramel Apple Galette.
How about a big slice of Dulce de Leche Apple Galette?

Pair this galette with something in the crock pot, and you have a fun, low-prep meal.  Here's an easy crock pot recipe that you might enjoy:
And because it's so close to Christmas, I brought some Christmas Cookies for you, too!
