I’m on a strawberry roll. After finishing up the fool the other day, I still had quite a bit of super ripe strawberries left, just sitting there all washed, gorgeously red and staring at me. So, what to do, what to do? How about a quick and easy galette? A galette is a free-form rustic tart, or as it is referred to in my home – a pizza.

Rustic Strawberry Galette

3 cups sliced strawberries

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 small lemon – freshly squeezed juice

1 teaspoon cornstarch

1 sheet – Pepperidge Farm Frozen Pastry sheets

Preheat oven to 350°F. Let pastry sheet thaw, then open and place on Silpat covered cookie sheet. Stretch out dough just a little bit. In a separate bowl, gently toss together the strawberries, sugar, lemon juice and cornstarch, and scoop onto the center of the dough. With your hands, spread out the mixture a couple of inches shy of the edges. Fold in the edges of the dough to form whatever shape you wish. I had leftover liquid from the mixture, so I brushed it onto the crust. Pop in the oven for 30 – 40 minutes, until crust turns a beautiful golden brown (the strawberry juices were overflowing, so I placed a piece of aluminum foil on the rack directly beneath the pan to catch the juices).

Serve right away or let cool. You can add a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a nice big dollop of the strawberry fool (recipe in June 12th post). Not too sweet – just right.

Enjoy.

 

  • I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across
    a blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and
    let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that too few folks are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy I came across this during my search
    for something relating to this.
