I would thaw the sliced apple pie filling completely before using it in your galette. A lot of moisture will be released if used directly without thawing and that could affect the outcome of the galette.

I agree about thawing the apple filling first - I would thaw in a colander so water drains out. I wouldn't squeeze it dry as you don't want to lose too much flavorful juice. I'd use it mostly thawed with a good sprinkling of ground almonds on the bottom to keep the crust from getting too soggy.
