Cherry Berry Croissant Galette

I love making galettes, which is french for a flat pastry. I prefer making galettes to traditional pies due to it’s rustic simplicity.  Start out with making a traditional pie dough. Roll it out into a circle, add fruit to the middle, and fold all around. No need to grease a pie mold. No need to make it look pretty; this comes naturally to galettes. Simple rustic elegance.

This version is even simpler. I had some Pillsbury Croissant dough in my fridge which I used as my dough. Just roll out to a circle, add a mixture of cream cheese, top with fruit, jam, and bake.

Ingredients:

  • Croissant dough
  • Cream cheese
  • powdered sugar
  • lime zest
  • vanilla
  • berries
  • Jam
  • Egg wash
  • Optional: top with whipped cream or ice cream

Directions

  1. Use 2 croissant triangles per Galette
  2. Roll into a ball, then roll out into a circle
  3. Combine cream cheese, vanilla, sugar, and lime zest.
  4. Spread cream cheese mixture to middle of dough circle
  5. Top with your choice of either fresh, canned or frozen fruit
  6. Add some jam to the top
  7. Fold sides of dough towards the center
  8. Brush egg wash to top of dough to form a golden crust.
  9. Bake at 375 for about 10-15 minutes.

    About your photography question…I have the same problem in Asheville. Late afternoon, early evening showers–ALWAYS when I need to take pictures!!! A good photography lamp helps, and is less expensive than a new camera–about $200-250!
