We all adore pie, but let’s face it — it’s not always the best summer party dessert. As a slice of pie requires both hands to consume, how are you supposed to sip your sweet tea or party cocktail while both your hands are preoccupied?
Introducing the galette, here to save the day. With nearly identical ingredients to a pie, this dessert is assembled similar to a pizza — with the crust lying flat rather than in a deep-dish pan — and is sliced in a way that makes it easy to eat while moving around the party scene without worrying about making a mess.
Galettes are simple to create and a perfect canvas for flavor creativity. Check out our Plum Galette Recipe or step it up a notch with our Pear, Gorgonzola, and Caramelized Onion Galette Recipe for a savory option. Galettes provide an opportunity to use seasonal, delicious ingredients in a gorgeous-looking dessert — what could be better? Now get cooking and give your guests a dessert you all will adore.
