Fruit Galettes

In fruit, pastry, tart on April 19, 2010 at 11:01

Week 10 | 4.19.2010

It is an awkward in-between season for fresh fruit. Whichever fruit (screams) out to me the loudest when I visit the market will make it into these little rustic tarts. Most likely I won’t be able to decide, in which case a variety of galettes will be made : )

The nice thing about galettes (for the baker) is that they are free-formed rather than rolled into tart pans. A little less work for me, an extra bit of buttery dough for you.

Fruit of the week TBD.

Tuesday

Market day – the best looking fruits are still oranges and apples this time of year. Not so terrible! Summer fruits just around the corner.

Prepped the galette dough. An interesting method of freezing little butter cubes and rolling them into little flakes between the flour.

Wednesday

My handiwork displayed above! The baking begins.
