To be completely honest, I didn’t really even know what a galette was before I developed this recipe. All I knew is that I wanted to create an easy summer pastry that included some of my favorite things: fruit and cheese. I was doing a little research on types of pastries, and making a galette just seemed like the perfect match for the ingredients I wanted to use.

What I learned is that a galette is a rustic, freeform pastry that is typically flat and round. It is made using flaky pastry dough and filled with fruit, similar to pie filling. The edges of the galette are hand-folded just enough to hold the fruit in.

For my recipe, I decided to make the galettes mini and use puff pastry because it is so quick and easy to work with and it perfectly compliments the filling.

Servings 4 mini galettes

Ingredients
  

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • All-purpose flour for dusting
  • 1 sheet puff pastry thawed, chilled
  • 3 ounces brie
  • 3 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 cups strawberries hulled and sliced
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract or vanilla extract
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • Coarse sugar for sprinkling

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and water to create an egg wash.
  • On a lightly floured surface, gently roll out the long edges of the puff pastry to create an even square, about 12 x 12 inches. Cut the sheet of puff pastry into 4 equal squares. Place the 4 pastry squares onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Cut the brie and cream cheese into small cubes about the size of dice. Drop half of the brie and cream cheese cubes into the center of each pastry square.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the strawberries with the sugar, almond extract, orange zest and cornstarch. Equally spoon strawberry mixture into the center of each pastry square. Drop the remaining brie and cream cheese cubes equally among each pastry, over the strawberries. Fold the edges of pastry over the fruit and cheese and crimp to form a round shape. Brush the top of each pastry with egg wash and sprinkle with coarse sugar.
  • Bake in the oven at 400 degrees F. for 25-30 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown and the center is bubbling. Once done, transfer to a wire rack to cool.
