This was a nice treat, I made a half recipe using apples. I added cinnamon and nutmeg for extra flavor. I found the pastry went together easily. I liked the crust though not as much as a regular pie crust, I found the texture a little chewy when fresh and it got quite soft over night even though well wrapped, I skipped the egg wash on the crust because my DH doesn't care for it. I've made galletes before and really like the simple, rustic look of them. Made for Best of 2010 Tag.
YUMMMMEEEEEEE! What a great way to use all this wonderful fall fruit. Boy, was this easy and good. We loved it! Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipe.
Loved this recipe, gailanng! I added a bunch of fruit I had on hand... in the end, it tasted fantastic, with "reclaimed" pears and apples (from orchards that had been abandoned 10 years ago, and are orgainic), wild blueberries, and strawberries. Who could complain - particularly with the delicious orange zest and vanilla added to all that wonderful fruit? I love how it comes together, too - no fancy schmancy crimping, and it looks so wonderfully rustic with the egg wash and coarse sugar. Great recipe - and one I'll use often! Made for PRMR Tag.
