Type: Dessert Recipe
Prep Time: 20 min
Bake Time: 25 to 30 min
Yield: 8 servings
- 1 unbaked prepared pie crust or pastry for the bottom crust – rolled out to 11 inches in diameter
- 1/3 cup strawberry jam or rhubarb jam
- 1/2 cup fresh strawberries – sliced in half or quarters
- 1 1/2 cups fresh rhubarb – chopped
- 1 apple – washed, peeled & sliced
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 1-1/2 tbsp flour
- 1 tsp corn starch
- 2 tbsp strawberry jam – mixed with 1 tsp water and 1 tsp melted butter
- Have on-hand a prepared bottom crust using a pie dough or pastry dough, rolled out to to 11 or 12 inch diameter, 1/4 inch thick.
- Press the dough into an 11 or 12 inch round.
- Lift onto a baking sheet and leave a 1 inch border at the edge.
- Create a little rim around the edges to hold all the ingredients and juices within the galette area.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Place 11 inch circle of dough on to a baking sheet.
- Spread jam evenly over surface of dough, leaving a 1 inch border around edge.
- Fold border over to form a rim. This doesn’t have to be perfect, in fact it is much nicer for the rim to look a bit rustic.
- In a bowl, gently combine rhubarb, strawberries, apple, sugar, flour and corn starch. It is best to give it a little taste at this point to be sure the mixture is sweet enough for your preference. If not, add more sugar.
- Distribute the fruit mixture evenly over the jam. Drizzle the jam and water mixture – 2 tbsp jam with 1 tsp water & 1 tsp melted butter – over top of the fruit. * Tip: Drizzle only 1/2 of the mixture over the fruit depending on how much juice is already rendered by the fruit.
- Bake until the crust is golden brown and juices have thickened – about 25 – 30 min.
- Note: The galette is best served brown.
This rhubarb galette always makes me think of beautiful Spring and early Summer days, and serving it outdoors is positively a dream.
