Recipe by Joyce Zhang

Joyce was up at the farm a couple of weeks ago and made us this galette.  Absolutely delicious, extremely low sugar, and really easy to make, if you have pastry dough already prepared.  We do offer as an add-on item pastry dough (one for desserts and one for savory dishes), that you can always order to be delivered with your CSA share.  This recipe makes two galettes.

1 Eatwell Farm Pastry Dough, or one of your own, divided and rolled out to about 9"

2 cups of chopped fruit, use a mix of Strawberries, Peaches or Plums

2 TB Sugar

Juice form 1/2 Lemon

1 Egg

1 TB Heavy Cream

Sugar for sprinkling over the crust

Preheat oven to 425 F.

Cut up the fruit and mix in a bowl with lemon juice and 2 TB sugar.  Place one of the rolled out pieces of pastry onto a piece of parchment paper.  Carefully spoon 1/2 the fruit in the center of one of the dough, leaving about 2" of dough at the edge, the whole way around.  Gently pick up the edge of the dough and fold it toward the middle, turning the tart as you go until you have a nice folded crust edge the entire way around with about 4" of fruit showing in the middle.  Repeat with the second dough and the remaining fruit.  Gently beat one egg, add the cream and brush over the edges of each galette, then sprinkle on just a tiny bit of sugar.  Place the galettes on a baking sheet and pop into the preheated oven.  As soon as your oven door is closed turn the heat down to 350-375F and bake until golden, about 10 minutes.
