Galettes (TWD)

Last night I was able to watch a couple of Baking with Julia shows on PBS that I had on my DVR. I love that there is a book to go along with the show. So, if you are looking for a great cookbook then you should buy it, Baking with Julia by Dorie Greenspan.

This week the TWD group was tasked with baking a Berry Galette (pg. 377). I chose to use apples instead of berries this time around and it turned out better than I could have imagined. I added cinnamon and a touch of nutmeg. The galette was gone in a matter of minutes.

Since the dough for the galette (pg. 371) was for two 8 inch galettes, I went ahead and tried the Cheese and Tomato Galette (pg. 429). That also turned out good but unfortunately, it wasn’t as enjoyable after it had cooled.

Lisa of Tomato Thymes in the Kitchen and Andrea of The Kitchen Lioness have the recipes on their blogs. You can also check out all the other TWD bakers here.

The galette dough incorporated cornmeal which I thought added a lot great texture. The recipe called for sour cream, which I am not a fan of. I opted for buttermilk instead.

So, with the Cheese and Tomato Galette, I didn’t have any cheese on hand besides Ethan’s cheese sticks…I didn’t want to go to the store again! I feel like I am there everyday…Does anyone else feel this way?! It worked out just fine though.

I would definately make the apple galette again using the galette dough. A keeper!

    Nice to see a preview of the tomato galette – I’m looking forward to making it whenever it comes up in the rotation. Apples sound like a lovely filling for the fruit galette.


    1. The crust was so good that I think no matter what you throw in there, it will come out tasting delicious!


  2. The apple one looks delicious! I need to make one with apples the next time I create this! I too am ALWAYS at the store, buying stuff to bake with of course,lol!


    1. Your combo with the cherries sounds like it was a hit and you sent it off to work with your husband and didn’t try it!? I wish I had that kind of will power!


  3. Looks great! I made the tomato one too, and just used the cheese in my refrigerator. There was no way I was going to the store yesterday! I like the background of your blog! Very literary ;)

    I made a delicious blueberry galette–can’t wait to try an apple galette soon!
    Great recipe.


    1. It is definately a keeper like the book says :)


  5. Love your take on the galette. We also chose apples (with plums), as well as a savory version with tomatoes, gluten free, of course. Loved this recipe.


    1. Thank you…your galette was beautiful! You have such a lovely blog. I enjoyed the pictures of your garden :)

    Such a funny picture of Julia, thank you for sharing it!
    You made two beautiful galettes and it is interesting to see a savory one.
    Sometimes (often) the best recipes come together with the “replacement” we have at hand…:-)


    1. I completely agree! I think the picture shows just how fun she must have been :)
