TWD: Berry Galette
I have a lot of TWD to catch up on. Life became hectic and I inadvertently ended up taking three months off. I did bake in that time, but I didn't have the opportunity to make the TWD recipes or to blog. I am just now jumping back in and I was very happy to do so with this recipe...or so I thought. See, I made this galette on Saturday, thinking that we would be posting it next week and only now realized that it was actually due yesterday. So, I'm jumping back in and I'm a day late. Does it count if you think you are ahead of schedule?
Now, back to the real topic at hand: I absolutely adore berries. Every year I anticipate berry season and then I mourn its end when it is over. So, I was pretty pleased to see that today's assignment was a berry galette. Incidentally, I was also happy to see that this recipe was so simple (it took very little time to come together) and that it called for only a very tiny amount of sugar in both the pastry and the fruit.
My only complaint is that there was something missing in the flavor. I thought it was a little flat. Now, I have never had a galette before, so maybe this is normal. Unfortunately, I can only really compare it to pies and tarts, which might be unfair since it is an entirely different kind of pastry.
