What is 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. All you need is a flat baking sheet pan to make some free-form pie. By definition, galette means flat cake made out of pastry dough with a variety of filling, such as fresh fruits, chocolate, etc.

The galette pastry dough is very similar to the one used for tarts. In fact, here I have used my shortcrust sweet pie crust dough recipe. It is mildly sweet, supremely buttery and flake once it has been baked to the 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 centre. 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 diving the dough into two.

I made these for Valentine’s Day as strictly no-sharing-dessert-recipe, 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!
