Galettes have multiple possibilities

Sep. 06, 2013 @ 12:10 AM

I do believe I have found the mega mother load of simple dessert recipes.

A galette is simply pie, or rather, rustic pie without the glass dish to bake it in and without the top pie crust to enclose it.

This recipe can support any fruit, so whatever is in season can be the beginnings of something amazing.

What is even more fantastic and something only cooks like me dream of, galette can also be savory. Meaning, you can throw in any vegetable that has been sauteed. Pie crust can be a lovely home for sauteed onions, mushrooms, squash and fontina cheese to top it.

It is literally your cooking canvas to paint however your dreamy mind can create.


3 peaches sliced

1 pkg. prepared pie crust

3 T. butter

3 T. brown sugar

1 T. self rising flour

1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat your oven at 400. In a bowl combine the peaches, brown sugar, flour, and vanilla. Place them on top of the pie crust and fold it over.

Bake 15 minutes.
