Fruit Galettes: 3 Ways

Autumn hand pies
It's almost pie season! Ah! You know the saying, "Easy as pie." Well, what's up with that? I mean, pie crusts are not exactly the easiest thing in the world. Creating that perfectly crimped edge can be a challenge. I love me some pie either way but I think a fun variation is galette. I love that the crust of these galettes is a bit more moist, making it easier to work with and gives it a pretty, but maybe a little bit messy look. A beautiful mess, maybe? (Oh my gosh, I think that's the first time we've ever done that joke on the blog!)Raspberry and cream pieSweet Galette Crusts, makes enough for 4 medium galettes.

 

Needed: 3 cups all purpose flour, 1/2 cup wheat flour, 1/2 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, a pinch of ground ginger, 1 1/2 cups (cold) butter, 3 eggs and 4 tablespoons water.
First blend together the flours and butter until the batter is like a coarse grain. I usually do this step in a food processor, but a pastry blender is great too. Then add in the sugars and spices, mix. Add in the eggs and water and use your clean hands to press the dough together. If it still feels too dry add another tablespoon of water. Press into a ball, cover in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. When your ready to fill the crusts simply divide in four and roll out on a lightly floured surface.
For the Raspberry and Cream galette you will need: 1 1/2 to 2 cups fresh raspberries, 2 tablespoons sugar and a few tablespoons of cream cheese. Center the raspberries in the middle of the crust circle. Tuck a few pads of cream cheese in between some of the raspberries. The goal is to give most bites a little bit of cream cheese. Sprinkle with sugar and roll up the edges.Apple and cheese pie
For the Sour Apple and Cheese galette you will need: 1 granny smith apple and 2/3 cup shredded gruyere cheese (or other cheese you prefer). In the center of the crust sprinkle on most of the cheese. Cover with thin slices of apple. Sprinkle on remaining cheese and roll up the edges.Pear and caramel pie
For the Pear and Caramel galette you will need: 1 pear, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, a pinch of cinnamon and caramel sauce for the top. In the center of the crust layer on think slices of pear. Sprinkle on brown sugar and cinnamon and roll up the edges. Drizzle on the caramel after baking.Easy pie recipes
Bake the galettes at 375 F for 25-30 minutes. Have fun making up your own delicious flavors! xo. Emma

 

  • Are you sure it’s supposed to be 1 1/2 cups of butter? I may have measured wrong, but my oven starting pouring out smoke and when I went to check, the galettes were dripping butter all over! 🙁

  • i made these last night for my sister’s birthday party and all of her friends loved them!

  • YOU ARE MAKING ME HUNGRY!

    XOXO

  • The Swedish saying is “Lätt som en plätt” which would translate to “Easy as a small pancake”, I guess that’s easier to make than an entire pie 😉

  • I love galettes! Such a smart idea for left-over pie crust. Head on over to my blog if you have a chance, I just posted my new DIY high waist cut-off shorts and a leopard coat I thrifted!

  • galettes are ah-moi-zing! my boss makes them all the time (since blackberries and plue-ots are in season)! it has a lovely balance between tart + sweet. “divine petites” is the name of her dessert business. if you ever stop by in san francisco on a saturday go to the fillmore farmers market and we’ll be there! ♥ she has vegan as well as gluten free options plus some regular stuff, but everything is dee-lish!

  • This looks so yummy! Perfect for the upcoming Fall season 🙂

  • ΤΗεσe red berries seems so delicious! And this one with the Apple, my grandma makes it and then her house becomes the temple of the best smells or something like that! Something gorgeous for sure!

  • These look SO good…they would be amazing as wedding desserts as well!

  • I think I will go for the Pear and Caramel version. Pears are all over the farmers market and caramel is just always great. Very rustic, classy galettes. Beautiful.

  • ooooh the raspberry + cream galette sounds SO good! i definitely want to try these. i’ve been making cobblers and pies recently, because of a mad sweet tooth. these are a perfect addition!
