A delicious recipe found from, the lovely Maya.
The first time I made this recipe I had guests for dinner. Yes, I did try a new recipe with dinner guests arriving within the hour. No, it probably isn't something I recommend. Though, this recipe turned out to be exactly as I wished...scrumptious.
I believe you can fill yours with whatever is in season. Our first galettes were made with peaches and this time with apples. Instead of seven dinner guests, this time it was thirty hungry, birthday celebrating, second graders.
The Recipe is quite Simple and Delicious.
No-Fail Dough ala MayaMade::
Makes 1 large galette or 8 minis (or in my case 40 mini-mini galettes, as I doubled the recipe)
2 Cups of Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
1/2 teaspoons of Salt
1 Tablespoons of Sugar
12 Tablespoons of cold unsalted buttter, cut into small pieces
1/2 Cup of cold water as needed
Mix dry ingredients in a bowl and then cut in the butter. Add water as needed to form dough into a ball. Roll dough into the size you want. Lay on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Spoon filling (instructions below) onto the center of the dough. Drizzle a small amount of juices. Fold edges of dough up around the fruit. "Tucking it in" as Maya says. Then you can paint an egg wash on the outside of the dough if you wish. Sprinkle crust with sugar if you choose.
Bake in the oven at 375 degrees until golden and bubbly.
The Apple Filling consisted of::
Apples 5-6 cored, peeled and sliced
Butter, a Tablespoon or two in the pan to avoid sticking
Brown sugar to taste
Cinnamon to taste, though we love it and always add more
A few tablespoons of water
I let them heat up slowly in the pan and let it simmer until the liquid had evaporated and the small amount of brown sugar caramelized. Do this until they are soft and delicious. Yes, you should try one to make sure.
The peach filling was done in the same way, just less simmering time. Maya even tried some gingered pears in hers. That is one we plan to bake some time as well.
All that's left to ask is, "What will you fill yours with? And, when?!!??"
Let me know what you think.
