You Galette a Be Kidding Me
Galette is a term used in french cuisine to designate free form flat round cakes or pastries (these can be both savory or sweet). All that means is in stead of using a tart pan or pie plate this little number’s edges are just folded up around the filling. The result is this fabulous rustic looking timeless creation; Think shabby chic with this dessert. That is not the actual definition but more like the cliff-notes version according to me.
This weekend at my house the refrigerator and freezer decided that they were going to go on strike and quit working! So, I decided that I was going to pull a Queen Bey and make lemonade out of lemons. I had berries that needed to be used because they were now defrosted and that is how my take on the galette came to be. I made a berry compote and filled those Trader Joe’s pre-made pie crust and puff pastry (since those were also now defrosted) right up. Not only was it quick and easy, everyone loved it. Now if only the repair person would get out here on the double. Think they would take galettes as a form of payment?
