Individual Galettes

Beginner
Individual Galettes - Nectarine & Blueberry | Appetite for Life

These individual galettes are super simple to make, and in 40 minutes, you can have dessert for 6 ready.


I'm keeping it simple here because it really is. I'm not even going to write a formal recipe. Instead, give you the basics and then let your imagination roam.


All you need is a sheet of frozen puff pastry, thawed. Spread it out on a parchment-lined baking sheet and cut into six pieces. I literally follow the fold lines and cut them in half. Take a fork and prick only the center of the rectangles, leaving about 3/4 of an inch as is along the side.


Fillings: Anything you want!

I've used nectarine and blueberries because that is what I had here at the house, but if it is Fall, what about apple slices with some brown sugar and cinnamon? Or, in the Spring, strawberry & rhubarb sprinkled with a little sugar and lemon zest.


If you look on the internet, you'll find tons of ideas. I'll be posting more as I make them both sweet and savory. Think of the savory versions as individual flaky pizzas. Top it with your favorite combinations.


The best thing is you don't need much to fill these. Here are my uncooked galettes. I filled these with way too much filling. Less is better. Notice the border I created around each and the fork marks under the filling. "Docking" or pricking it with the fork doesn't allow the pastry to rise. No holes, like along the side, and it creates it's own border surrounding your filling.

I'm definitely going to do more experimenting so stay tuned for more ideas.


Enjoy!

Hi!  I'm Jen

Cooking is a passion passed down from both of my grandmothers to my mother and then to my sister and me.  

Throughout my career, I was always drawn back to food.  I've learned from experienced chefs, apprenticed with professional bakers, and tasted coffee with international experts.

Today I'm sharing those experiences with you.
