Preparation

Pastry: In bowl, whisk together flour, sugar and salt; using pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until in coarse crumbs. Stir in water all at once just until mixture begins to come together, adding up to 2 tbsp more water if needed. Press into disc; wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Divide pastry into sixths; form each into ball. On lightly floured surface, roll out each into 7-inch (18 cm) circle. Arrange on 2 parchment paper–lined baking sheets.

In bowl, toss together apples, sugar, cinnamon and allspice. Spoon about 1/2 cup onto centre of each pastry circle. Lift pastry edge up and over filling to form about 4-inch (10 cm) circle, letting pastry fall naturally into folds and leaving centre uncovered. Whisk egg with 1 tsp water; brush over pastry. Sprinkle galettes with about 1/2 tsp more sugar.

Bake in top and bottom thirds of 375°F (190°C) oven, switching pans halfway through, until pastry is golden and apples are tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool slightly on pan on rack. (Make-ahead: Lightly cover and set aside on baking sheet for up to 24 hours; warm in 300°F/150°C oven for 10 minutes before serving.)

Whiskey Caramel: In small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Whisk in sugar, cream and salt; bring to boil.

Boil, whisking, until thickened, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in whiskey and vanilla.

Place each galette on centre of plate; drizzle with caramel sauce.
