Come over and taste the difference of a Butter Puff Pasty Mixed Fruit Galette prepared at home, the best of the best.
Galette (from the Norman word gale, meaning “flat cake”) is a term used in French cuisine to designate various types of flat round or freeform crusty cakes, or, in the case of a Breton galette (French: Galette bretonne; Breton: Krampouezhenn gwinizh du), a pancake made with buckwheat flour usually with a savory filling. Of the cake type of galette, one notable variety is the galette des Rois (King cake) eaten on the day of Epiphany. In French Canada, the term galette is usually applied to pastries best described as large cookies.
Mixed Fruit Galette Recipe
I love the versatility of a Mixed Fruit Galette. Not only can you use whatever fruits you have on hand, but you can also customize the flavors to your liking by adding different spices and flavorings. The buttery Puff Pastry crust pairs perfectly with the sweet and tart fruits, creating a delightful combination of flavors.
