I can’t believe its August already… The older I become the faster the time goes by. I made this galette a couple of weeks ago and realized that I need to post it here before it becomes irrelevant amongst the autumnal treats that are sure to dominate the internet food world thing.

I’ve never been good at making pie. When the filling turned out excellent, the crust was lackluster and when the crust was excellent, the filling cooked down too much leaving a huge gap between filling and top crust. Someday I will proudly present to you all a pie success, but in the meantime…

You get a galette! And it’s GOOD. The first time I made this it spread out quite a bit becoming a little too oblong for my liking. Baking it in a 9 inch tart pan with a removable bottom fixed this for me. If you choose to do this, make sure to place the tart pan on a baking sheet before placing in the oven as the butter from the crust tends to seep out through the removable bottom as it bakes.

I mean, it’s practically a pie… Whatever, it’s so delicious I can’t be bothered with the details.

Get the recipe here! I just added a few strawberries to mine as I had them on hand.

Happy baking!
