It’s been a while since we posted a pie, so I thought it might be time! When I have extra berries around that are about to take a turn for the worst it’s I love making a quick and simple galette. Galettes to me are much less intimidating than a pie, because the point in making them is not to be perfect. That is the beauty in galettes, the thick folds of pie dough over the berries make a beautiful rustic case for all your gorgeous super sweet berries. To be super over the top and crazy, add ice cream when the galette is still warm. Yum. Also, individual galettes are pretty fun to make too. :)
ALSO! If you’re looking for some yummy weeknight meals we created another week of easy and yummy ones over at Delish.com! You can get them all right HERE.
