Rustic Fruit Galette (10 years later)
September has me feeling a bit nostalgic. About 10 years ago I moved away from home and unbeknownst to me, I would find my love for cooking, baking, and all things in between. I remember the first (and only time) I made a fruit galette was in September. It wasn’t difficult per se, but I was definitely uncomfortable. While the galette both looked and tasted good, I never made it again. I’m not sure why, maybe I put so much effort into researching how to make it, I felt it was more difficult than it actually was. So I just never made it again
But I’ve been feeling a bit nostalgic lately and I after browsing some of my past blogs, I came upon my post on making a rustic fruit galette and I was inspired to make it again. What a difference 10 years can make! The crust was surprisingly easy and quick to make. I felt comfortable working with the flour and the butter. Kneading the dough and rolling it to make a beautiful tasty crust took me only minutes. I didn’t use any egg or milk as a wash on the crust because I was impatient and just wanted to get it in the oven, but it was still beautiful in my eyes. =)
The portions that I used for the crust were 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup butter, 3 Tbs cold water, and pinch of salt. The technique on the other hand needs to be more clear. I think I need to make it one more time so I can confidently write out the recipe for the crust, but I promise it will be posted as soon as I write it down!
