Fruit Galette

Saturday, July 17, 2021
This is a buttery single crust, free-form pie with a fruit filling and the crust folded partway over the top of the filling, French in origin called a galette.

This is an old-style open-faced pie using buttery pie crust with fresh summer fruits.

Typically a seasonal fruit dessert to include one or more additions of fruits; apple, berries such as strawberries or blueberries, pineapple, or stone fruits such as peaches, plums, mango, or cherries, or even figs.

We use the best of the season ripe cherries and peaches, all baked in this delicious butter crust.

The medley of fruits is a family favorite galette using bing fresh cherries, peaches, blueberries but the suggestions and combinations can be endless.

Each pie can always be a different kind and perfect making it in a muffin tin to satisfy everyone's favorite.
