ffwD: Sable Breton Galette with Berries

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

This week’s assignment, sable breton galette with berries, was a fun dessert to make. How can you go wrong with sweet galette dough that can be easily adapted into cookies, lemon curd, and fresh berries? You can’t really. Each of these three ingredients standing alone would be a fine dessert option in their own right. Putting them together? Now that’s a classy dessert.

Actually, I was planning on making the dough into cookies like Laws of the Kitchen did, and later topping them with the lemon curd and berries. But, I was too distracted by the Miami Heat’s Game 7 championship win and post-game coverage to focus on baking batches of cookies. So, I opted for the one large galette and two mini-galettes that could be baked at the same time. Also, while the dough was chilling, I actually tried my hand at making Dorie’s lemon curd from scratch, which was my first attempt ever. And, it turned out sweet, lemony, and fantastic! I’m glad there’s plenty left so I can play around with it on poundcake or maybe a berry parfait of some type.

This sable breton galette with berries was made as a part of French Fridays with Dorie, a group of bloggers who are cooking their way through Dorie Greenspan’s Around My French Table: More Than 300 Recipes from My Home to Yours.

    That looks too good to eat. That’s the only problem, you can’t eat it because you’d be destroying a work of art.

    Gorgeous, that crust looks amazing, it’s a beautiful tart and you are so right each component is good on it’s own but putting it all together makes a very special and elegant dessert.
