Galettes: The Queen of High ROI Desserts

We’re all about Recipe ROI (Return on the Investment of your time, effort and money)  – and we consider the Galette the reigning Queen of Summer Dessert ROI.

What is a Galette?
Basically, a pie made without a pie pan. Classy, rustic and super easy.

How to Make a Galette
Roll out dough, spread out fruit stirred with sugar and cornstarch, fold dough edges toward center, bake.

Why We Crowned it Queen
With pre-made dough, it takes less than 5 minutes and less than 5 ingredients. It looks gorgeous, and tastes amazing. The best part? Imperfection is the goal – the more messy (aka rustic), the better!

Over the Top
Use our Easy Homemade Pie Dough and/or make a quick homemade whipped cream.

It’s Having a Moment…
Galettes are everywhere lately! Last week on vacation, I went to a large dinner party on a lake – we were 8 and joined another 12 there. We arrived on our boat with 3 galettes in hand, only to find our hostess had prepared 3 of her own!
