The Versatile as Hell Gallette


    Simple. Legit. Crowd Pleaser.

    GF. V. SF. NF.


    Ingredients:

    Crust:

    1/2 cup soy free Earth Balance (make sure it's really cold)

    1 cup GF AP flour (I use Pamela's Artisan Blend)

    1/4 tsp xanthan gum (unless your flour already includes it)

    1/4 tsp salt

    1 tsp sugar or sweetener

    1/4 cup super mega cold ice water

    Filling:

    1 cup of whatever fruit you have or like

    1 tbsp sugar

    Extras:

    Drizzle of maple syrup (for browning your crust)

    Sugar for prettiness

    Directions:

    (you gotta work quickly on this one - warm butter = shitty crust)

    In a food processor, or in a bowl with a fork and a lot of elbow grease, combine flour, xanthan gum, salt, and sugar

    Add the earth balance in a few chunks (don't just dump it all in) and pulse until crumbly Add ice water and pulse until just incorporated

    Dump the dough out onto a piece of plastic wrap and form it into a fat disc

    Wrap that disc and put it in the fridge for a few hours (or overnight)

    When the dough is good and cold, preheat the oven to 350°

    Roll out the dough into a big circle or whatever shape you feel like making on some parchment

    Dump your filling in the middle of your rolled out dough, leaving about 2" on the sides

    Use the parchment to help you fold the edges of the dough in to "seal" the filling in

    Brush the crust edges with some maple syrup to get that golden brown goodness

    Sprinkle with some suga, if you feelin fancy

    Bake for about an hour (or until it's done)

    Makes 1 galette (crust can easily be doubled to make a fancy pie, or 2 galettes)

    Vicious Variations:

    Sweet

    Any Fruit in season (or on sale), tossed in a little sugar makes for an awesome dessert or brunch menu addition

    Savory

    Wilted greens, garlic, balsamic reduction - you have been warned

    Sound Mate:

    Drudkh - Blood in Our Wells

    Ukrainian Black Metal that feels and sounds like the best day.
