TWD: Berry Galette

Today's TWD recipe is a Berry Galette.  I opted for an Apple Galette since we were still finishing off the Blueberry Nectarine Pie (also a TWD recipe) as I played catch-up in my baking this week.   (Who's complaining??  Not my family, that's for sure!)





The galette dough was beautiful to work with!    Once chilled for several hours, it rolled perfectly. 





I accidentally misread the recipe, however.  In my initial read-through of the recipe I realized the recipe made enough dough for two galettes.   What I didn't pick up on was that that the filling was intended for one galette. I should have doubled the filling recipe to make two!   Alas, our galettes simply had extra crust----but I think that was the best part!! 






The crust was flaky and tender, the filling was sweet and juicy.  Just perfect!  I will definitely make this recipe again (with more filling!) and try berries and other fruits.    I'm thinking peach will be perfect.


For the complete recipe, please visit Lisa of Tomato Thymes in the Kitchen and Andrea (a TWD member from Germany) of The Kitchen Lioness.   They have gorgeous photos to go along with the recipe!

  1. Unless the berries are very sweet I think peaches are a better choice. Beautiful galette!

    1. The dough is certainly not sweet, so I can see your point!

      Thanks!

    1. Agreed! Next time I think I'll add a sprinkling of brown sugar atop the apple slices. Double yum!

  3. If it was for the family, they surely would say "yes" to a daily Baking with Julia!
    Your over-crusted-yummy pie looks great.

    I made one with mixed berries but found it a bit too tangy
    I made a second one with mixed berries and nectarine and it was PERFECT!
