The best thing about 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 complimenting 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 galette by diving the dough into two.
Grind the Sugar and Almonds together into a fine powder.
Take a bowl and mix flour and almond mix together.
Add the cold butter cut in small cubes.
Now, break the butter using the finger tips while mixing it with the flour mix. Keep doing this till there's no bigger lumps of butter are left.
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 clingwrap sheet and refrigerate for 20 mins for it to rest.
Meanwhile prepare the strawberry filling by chopping them and mixing it with brown sugar, cornflour and rosemary.
When you are ready to bake, pre-heat the oven at 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.
Spread some jam on the pastry where you will place the filling. This will ensure that the pastry doesn't become soggy due to the liquid from the fruits.
Place the filling in the centre. Start bringing the edges over the filling thus securing them. Gently press the pastry so that it doesn't open up while baking.
Transfer the galette on the baking tray lined with parchment sheet.
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 to the crust has turned golden and the base is beautifully baked with no soft & uncooked spots.
Allow them to cool a bit before serving.
