"She knew him when he was glad. When he was stressed or irritated or thinking. She knew him when he was inspired, and she loved him that way most."
- This Life Undone
When I saw that strawberries were finally reappearing in the grocery, I got excited and bought four pounds. I threw some into salad, ate some for snacks, but we still had two pounds that were threatening to go bad unless I found something to do with them. Hence, these strawberry galettes were born!
The key to strawberry galettes is the dough. You want it to be soft and pliable, not too dry and not overcooked. It's always good to err on the "early side" when baking, (pulling things out of the oven early), because dough will continue to firm as it cools. I checked these galettes right at the 27 minute mark and thought they were perfect, so that's when I took them out!
