In last night’s Art of Pastry we made Galettes!
So what are galettes?
They’re pastries made with a milk pastry dough which includes as its ingredients: pastry flour, salt, butter, and milk. Its the set aside in the fridge to keep cool while the filling is made.
In our case, we made a delicious apple cinnamon filling. It reminded me of apple pie. 🙂 The ingredients we used for the filling were: apples, fresh lemon juice, and lemon zest, brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter.
Galettes can be different sizes – large or indiviual size. So we then cut circles to make the galettes. The circles are for both the top and bottom of the galette. You can even do open tops for your galettes if you want, but prefer the traditional galette where it is covered. Just make sure you have some vents cut into the top to let out the steam while baking. Then bake in the oven!
Once the galettes have cooled, put a translucent sugar glaze on top. This will add some additional sweetness, as well as shine. Yum!
