Today’s BWD recipe for Summer Fruit Gallete was chosen by Elizabeth of Gluten-Free Baking 101. You can find her gluten-free version here. You can find the original recipe on Tina’s blog, My Domestic Bliss, or on pages 366-367 of Dorie Greenspan’s Baking: From My Home to Yours.
I was a bit intimidated by this recipe. As I’ve posted here before, I don’t have a ton of baking experience, and have never made a pie crust. I figured that would be the part of this recipe with which I would struggle. Turns out that was the easy part for me! My plan was to use peaches (Dorie recommended peaches, apricots, plums or rhubarb). I spent 30 minutes trying to get the peaches peeled and sliced, and only got halfway through the eight peaches I had. Thankfully, I had seen Elizabeth’s post using blueberries, and since I just bought some this morning along with strawberries, I decided to go that route. Thanks goodness! It was so delicious. The husband loved it too, although he was missing some whipped cream or vanilla ice cream (he has a pretty strong sweet tooth). The pie crust was to die for, and will definitely be my go-to recipe.
Doesn’t this look amazingly delicious?
