I brought home an abundance of summer fruits from the market this weekend and the first thing I thought of was pie. But I was too impatient to make pie crust, let it sit in the fridge, roll it out and everything. I wanted pie and I wanted it as soon as possible. So instead of pie I decided on a galette.
According to Webster’s Dictionary, a galette is defined as:
1: a flat round cake of pastry often topped with fruit
2: a food prepared and served in the shape of a flat round cake
According to me, a galette is defined as an easy way to make pie.
Instead of making a crust from scratch (and waiting for hours) I used a box of gluten free bread mix – simply mix, roll, fill and bake. As easy as, well…pie. Actually a whole lot easier than pie!
For my galette I used peaches, plums and cherries but you can use whatever stone fruits you like, apricots would be a lovely addition. I also used the All-Purpose
