As I’ve previously said, I’m generally not a huge dessert fan, but sometimes…you want something a little sweet.
And a little easy.
This dessert is both!
A galette is a fancy French term for any flat, flat or freeform crusty dessert type thing. It sounds fancy, but oh, it’s so easy! This is a dandy dessert to whip together when you have unexpected company swing by…
I particularly love it with strawberries, but you could use virtually any in-season fruit – peaches, raspberries or mixed berries would be divine here.
- 1 refrigerated pie crust (I’m a fan of Pillsbury’s)
- a couple handfuls of sugar
- a pound of fresh strawberries (in a pinch, use a bag of frozen, just defrost them fully first)
Prep your strawberries and macerate them with some sugar – give them a good toss and let them hang out for a while. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Grease a baking sheet then lay the pie crust right on the sheet. Pile all that strawberry deliciousness right in the middle, then gently pull the pastry up to partially cover the fruit, sealing any holes or rips. Sprinkle a generous handful of sugar on the fruit and pastry then pop in the oven for 25-35 minutes, checking for a golden brown crust.
Cut to serve – this is extra delicious with a dollop of whipped cream, or even just some heavy cream poured right over the top. Dig in!
