Fruit Galette
Recipe type: Dessert, Snack
Fruit Pie, Fruit Galette, Fruit Tart. This is one of the easiest things I’ve ever made. Call it whatever you’d like. There’s no peeling and no dicing, and all the ingredients you likely already have at home.
  • 1 cup flour
  • ¾ stick margarine
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 ½ tablespoons ice cold water
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 apricots and 6-7 cherries, cut in half and pitted
  • OR 4-5 plums, cut in half and pitted
  • Nonstick cooking spray and granulated sugar
  • Confectioners’ sugar
  1. Combine dough ingredients together by hand. Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  2. On a floured surface, roll out dough into a 10 to 11-inch circle. Place dough on a sheet of baking paper or in a floured 10-inch round pan (leave the dough overlapping the sides for now).
  3. Place fruit in the center, leaving a 2-inch border. Fold up the edges of dough over the fruit and pinch into pleats.
  4. Spray border with nonstick cooking spray and sprinkle sugar generously over dough and fruit. At this point you can freeze it as-is. When ready to bake, just defrost and bake.
  5. Bake at 400ºF for 55-60 minutes.
  6. Sprinkle generously with confectioners sugar (as some kids say: a blizzard of sugar).
You should always taste the fruit before using it in the pie to make sure the fruit isn’t too tart. You want sweet summer fruits for a sweet pie.
