Ingredients
  • 1 14-ounce package refrigerated pie dough (2 crusts) I use Pillsbury
  • 3 cups about 1 pound sliced strawberries
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • milk or cream for brushing the crust
  • raw Demerara or Turbinado sugar, for sprinkling
  • strawberry jam
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400˚F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  2. Place sliced strawberries in a medium-size bowl. Do not add the sugar or cornstarch yet. Set aside.
  3. Transfer the dough rounds to the prepared baking sheets, placing 4 on each sheet.
  4. Lightly flour a work surface and rolling pin. Unroll the two pie crusts and stack them on top of each other. Sprinkle the top surface lightly with flour and roll the crusts out to a larger circle, 16-17 inches in diameter.
  5. Cut out four circles of dough, 6-7-inches in diameter. Remove the scraps and discard or use for another purpose. (See Café Tips above in post for a tip on how to cut the circles as well as how to use the scraps.)
  6. Add the sugar, cornstarch and lemon zest to the sliced strawberries. Stir well to combine.
  7. Place about ¼ cup of the strawberries on each dough round, leaving a 1-inch inch border around the edges. Fold the edges of the dough up over the strawberries, pleating and gently crimping as you go. The center will be exposed. Brush the exposed crust along the edges with milk and sprinkle with raw or Turbinado sugar.
  8. Transfer each galette to the prepared sheet pan when finished.
  9. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the crusts are golden brown and the strawberry juices are bubbling.
  10. Transfer the galettes to a wire rack and bush the exposed fruit with the strawberry jam. Serve warm or at room temperature. Add a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream if desired.
