Strawberry Rhubarb Galette Recipe

According to wiki, a Galette is a term used in French cuisine to designate various types of flat round or freeform crusty cakes, or, in the case of a Breton galette, a pancake made with buckwheat flour usually with a savoury filling. We see them mainly as easy to make desserts filled with fresh (or frozen) fruit! A galette is short, and the filling is open while the sides are turned up. Unlike a pie, a galette is baked on a baking (cookie) sheet… and can spread and run. I am sure everyone looking at this recipe has had at least one galette experience where the fruit filling has leaked all over the pan – too much liquid can be an issue. This recipe breaks down and thickens the fruit juices.

Generally speaking, galettes are easy to make, although each step does take some time. In this recipe a premade pie crust shell is used. If you are looking for a nice, sweet dough to try with this recipe (realizing I have not used it to make this strawberry rhubarb galette), try this easy pie crust dough recipe.
