Sometimes I look back at my published posts and I see reoccurring themes. What I’m seeing now is that apparently I’ve been really into comfort food lately. Soup, potato gratin, a pot pie… and now this galette. Maybe I just need a hug. Or a cup of tea. A glass of scotch. Something to make me feel cozy.
I can’t take complete credit for this recipe. The filling, I can. The crust, not so much. That came from the very talented baker/entrepreneur/cookbook author behind the fabulous Tate’s Bake Shop, Kathleen King, who has just come out with her latest book, Baking for Friends. You may be a bit skeptical when you see the cornmeal listed as an ingredient… but gosh darn it, every time I make a galette, I’m going to refer back to this recipe. That small addition has a huge impact on the whole texture of the pastry. And it works beautifully.
Before you head on off to make this (which was incredibly easy to whip up and will work with a number of other kinds of fruits), I have a little giveaway to announce! The fine folks at Tate’s Bake Shop are generously giving away one of their fantastic Cookie and Bar Towers to one lucky reader.
