Galettes are a great way to enjoy in-season fruits – peaches, berries, you name it. But our star for today is none other than STRAWBERRIES! If you have noticed, I have featured lots of strawberry desserts already. That’s because I am in love with strawberries as much as I am with cheesecake and chocolate! 🙂

This Strawberry Galette comes with a flaky crust, and sweet, juicy filling. It is delicious and stunning, making it an excellent dessert option whatever the celebration is.
2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 c. cornmeal
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 c. unsalted butter (cold, cut into small pieces)
About 1/2 cup of ice water
3 c. strawberries (sliced)
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
3 teaspoon sugar
1 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
1 egg (for egg wash)
- BY HAND: Place the flour, cornmeal, sugar, salt, and butter in a mixing bowl. Cut in the butter using a pastry cutter until it resembles coarse sand. Add the water and mix well.
- USING A FOOD PROCESSOR: Put the flour, cornmeal, sugar, salt, and butter in a food processor and then pulse until a coarse-sand mixture forms. Add the water and continue to pulse until the dough is good enough.
Place the dough on a floured surface and form a ball. Cut in half and flatten each one into a disk. Wrap in plastic and then put in the fridge for about an hour.
Filling and baking:
- Add the strawberries, lemon juice, sugar, and cornstarch to a bowl and mix well.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Roll each piece of dough into a circle (about 12 inches in diameter).
- Place half of the filling in the middle of each circle, leaving 2 to 3 inches border.
- Fold up the sides over the filling all the way around. Do the same with the remaining piece of dough and filling.
- Brush the crust with the beaten egg.
- Bake the galette for about 35 minutes or until golden brown.
- You can store your strawberry galette at room temperature for up to 2 days. Make sure to loosely cover it with foil. You can also use plastic wrap.
To reheat a strawberry galette, do it in the oven for about 5 to 10 minutes or until warm at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
