This pie was baked by my 14-year-old son. He made the dough, mixed a filling of tart rhubarb and sweet cherries, and then he created the lattice. I sat back, trying not to take over, and just watched in amazement as he figured it all out. It was a thing of beauty to see him moving so confidently in the kitchen and his pie, well you can see for yourself, the kid has skill. I was in heaven. There is nothing sweeter than a kid in the kitchen and especially when he’s baking my favorite pie.

Sometimes I ask myself, “Do I really need another excuse to eat more pie?” (No). But while pi is certainly irrational, we think eating some pie today is very rational (nerd joke).

A galette is a French tart, or simply a pie without a plate. It is easy to make and there is no fancy fluting or lattice top crust to worry about. Right now apples are abundant, with many varieties to choose from. You can mix and match to suit your mood. Some will turn to sauce (McIntosh), some will keep their shape (Prairie Spy), others will be sweet (HoneyCrisp) and some will be tart (Haralson). The crust should be tender and flaky and just barely strong enough to hold up to the apples. It adds to the drama if some of the juices escape, which is why we bake on a sided baking sheet.

I’m not going to lie—I’d never tried a Take 5 candy bar until just a few days ago. When I took my first salty, sweet, insanely delicious bite I immediately wondered what in the heck I had been waiting for. Seriously, what could possibly be wrong with a combination of pretzels, peanuts, peanut butter, caramel, and chocolate? Nothing.
So when it came time to come up with a stellar Super Bowl dessert —because really, it’s all about the food—I knew a replication of the Take 5 bar would be a guaranteed knock-it-out-of-the-park success.
