Tuesdays with Dorie: Mini Berry Galettes

I have been meaning to join Tuesdays with Dorie for a while now. The book the group is working on now is Baking with Julia, by Dorie Greenspan.

It happens to be one of my favorite books and I have sticky notes on every other page in the book. They are all recipes I have been meaning to try and just haven’t gotten around to baking quite yet. 
I wasn’t sure if I would find the time to get this recipe together yesterday.  To my surprise, the recipe for this Tuesday luckily was on of my favorites! It’s a wonderful galette dough made with cornmeal. You could also add sour cream to the dough if you are out of yogurt. The dough is amazing. It is soft and has a little crispiness to it form the cornmeal.It was poring rain (again)and my camera battery was about to die. I found a little break in the afternoon to make the dough and I should’ve let it chill a little longer. I’m being too picky because none of my baking testers here were opposed to it’s results. In fact, it disappeared really fast.
I make this galette pretty often with apples and whatever fruits I have on hand that are ripe. I also love to make it for dinner sometimes as a savory galette.I had some perfectly ripe strawberries and some frozen blueberries. I decided to make 6 mini galettes so everyone could have there own pretty little portion; almost like mini pies.

Yum! I’d already decided in my mind that next time I make this recipe I was going to make minis. Seeing yours confirms that idea! SO cute!

These look totally worth making. I have the book too and love baking from it but I never seem to make it for the tuesdays with Dorie-sessions.. ;) Maybe I should give it another go!

We love these and yours look fantastic!

Lisa August 7, 2012 at 9:33 pm

Can I have 4 of these, please? Lora..you are a baking goddess. I wish my crusts turned out as gorgeous as yours. Not making anything ‘pie’ for a while has certainly given us two days of make up ‘pie’, goooood make up ‘pie’, and galettes. Who needs a pan? :)

Mini galettes–what a fun idea. I do love my own little dessert. This was a yummy summer treat.

Lora, what a brilliant idea to bake “mini galettes”: everyone can choose the filling they prefer and they look so elegantly rustic.

Perfectly beautiful galettes! Love the individual servings…such a treat for dessert! I really loved the dough. I thought it had a great texture due to the corn meal. Have a great day!!

I just noticed your new post Lora. Love, love the cute and yummy little galettes. The crunchy crust, and the fruit filling was so perfect. I only got to taste 1/2 of one of the galettes, and Gabby was already cautioning me, that she needs to have one for breakfast, he, he! Great photos, as well!xoxo

Very cute. I must get my hands on one of Dorie’s books, I don’t think she’s very well known down under or even in the UK. This has to change!

Love, love, love these little galettes – I have never made galette before, because I have a bit of a pastry phobia. But, I’m intrigued by a dough which has cornmeal and yoghurt, so I think I have to try. Not much in the way of summer fruits around here right now, but I’m thinking I might be able to get away with some frozen berries, or even tinned apricots.

Welcome! I love mini desserts. It is always fun to get your own personal package. They look wonderful.

What an interesting sounding recipe for galette dough with the cornmeal and yogurt and/or sour cream and what an enticing looking fruity galette.
