{ Rustic Balsamic Strawberry Galette }

Wednesday, May 18, 2016

This is one of my favorite desserts to make with fresh strawberries. I bought a flat of strawberries at one of our local farms and I canned strawberry jam and strawberry coulis, and we ate strawberry spinach salad , strawberry ice cream and strawberry shortcakes  And last but not least I made a galette. I love , love love these! I use blackberries, peaches and cinnamon apples to make these all year round. These are so easy to put together and you can't mess up the presentation. Just flip over the dough onto the fruit and brush with egg wash and dust with sugar. Enjoy!
*If you do not care for balsamic vinegar, just omit it from the recipe. It is sill super yummy without it.

*you can use heavy cream to brush the crust instead of egg wash.

Rustic Balsamic Strawberry Galette

1 pie crust ( homemade or store bought)
2 cups fresh strawberries, stemmed and sliced in half
1 T balsamic vinegar
1 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp sugar

Preheat oven to 35 degrees.
Place the piecrust  on a  lightly greased cookie sheet (or you can use parchment paper)
In a medium bowl, stir together the berries , balsamic vinegar, cornstarch and sugar.
Place the berries in the center of the pie dough.
Pull up the corners of the dough around the berries and pinch to hold together.
Using a pastry brush, brush egg was over the dough and sprinkle with sugar.
Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the filling is bubbly.
Let the galette sit for about 5 minutes before cutting.
