What is a Galette?

Galette is a French pastry which is very similar to a tart or pie. However, unlike the tart or pie, it doesn’t require any particular baking pan. You only need a flat baking sheet pan to make a free-form pie.

The galette pastry dough is very similar to the one used for tarts. Here in this fruit galette, I have used my shortcrust sweet pie crust dough recipe. It is mildly sweet, supremely buttery, and flakes once it has been baked to perfection.

The best thing about a galette is you can be as creative as you like about the filling. You can use any fruit and simply slice them up (or chop them) to make the filling for a galette. It doesn’t need any special skill to get that correct.

This fresh strawberry galette is the perfect winter dessert with its buttery and flaky crust complementing the sweet strawberry center. You can make a big one by rolling out the dough into a big round galette or you can make these mini strawberry galettes by dividing the dough into two.

I made this as a treat for Valentine’s Day and they turned out to be super fantastic. I also added some almond meal to the crust dough which gave it a subtle flavour. Unlike my sweet pie crust recipe, I omitted the egg. So, if you are looking for eggless dessert recipes then this is your call!

Eggless Fresh Strawberry Galette Ingredients

  • 1 cup of fresh strawberries, hulled and halved
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 cup cold butter, and 3 tablespoons of ice water for pie dough
  • Brown sugar (for dusting)

Eggless Strawberry Galettes Recipe Instruction

  1. Take a bowl and mix flour, almond meal, and the cold butter cut into small cubes.
  2. Now, break the butter using your fingertips while mixing it with the flour mix. Keep doing this till there are no bigger lumps of butter left.
  1. Now, add water, one tablespoon at a time, and bring everything together into a dough. Once you see everything coming together into a big lump, stop kneading. Do not over-mix. Cover the bowl with a cling wrap sheet and refrigerate for 20 minutes for it to rest.
  2. When you are ready to bake, preheat the oven to 180°C. Divide the dough into two parts. Now, roll one of them gently on a floured surface into a circular disc of quarter-inch thickness.
  1. Spread some jam on the pastry where you will place the filling to keep the galette crust from getting soggy. This will ensure that the pastry doesn’t become soggy due to the liquid from the fruits
  2. Meanwhile prepare the strawberry filling by chopping it and mixing it with brown sugar, cornflour, and rosemary. Place the strawberry filling in the center. Start bringing the edges over the filling thus securing them. Gently press the pastry so that it doesn’t open up while baking.
  1. Transfer the galette to the baking tray lined with parchment sheet or a non-stick baking tray
  2. Repeat the steps with the second galette. Sprinkle some brown sugar on the top. Bake them for 45 minutes. Once done, you will see that the edges of the crust have turned golden and the base is beautifully baked with no soft & uncooked spots.
