    Roosie's Note:

    A great alternative to pie that you can use with almost any fruit. The best part is the juices that gather under the crust. It's a free-form tart that looks like a fruit pizza.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 8-10

    Yield:

    12inch ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Dough

    Filling

    • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    • 7 tablespoons sugar
    • 3 -4 cups fruit (I've made this with blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and apples but most fruits can be used)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      DOUGH--Combine flour and salt in a bowl.
    2. 2
      Cut in half of the butter with a pastry blender (or rub in between your fingertips) until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal.
    3. 3
      Cut in remaining butter until it is in pea-sized bits.
    4. 4
      Sprinkle water in evenly, mixing in with a fork until flour mixture is completely moistened and holds together when pressed between your fingers.
    5. 5
      Gather dough into 1/2" thick disk and wrap tightly in plastic wrap.
    6. 6
      Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
    7. 7
      Dough can be prepared up to 2 days ahead of time and refrigerated.
    8. 8
      To freeze, overwrap in aluminum foil and defrost overnight in fridge.
    9. 9
      If dough is too hard let stand at room temperature for about 10 minutes until soft enough to roll.
    10. 10
      Preheat oven to 400*F.
    11. 11
      Position rack to center.
    12. 12
      A baking stone can be used if availiable.
    13. 13
      On a floured surface, roll our dough into very thin (no more than 1/16" thick) 14" diameter round.
    14. 14
      Roll edges a bit thinner than the center so that when the edges are folded over to make a border it won't be too thick.
    15. 15
      Transfer to a pizza pan or large rimless baking sheet lightly greased or lined with parchment paper.
    16. 16
      FILLING--comine flour and 2 tbs sugar and sprinkle over dough, leaving 2" border.
    17. 17
      Arrange fruit on top of the sugar/flour mixture, again leaving a border.
    18. 18
      Sprinkle fruit with 4 tbs of remaining sugar.
    19. 19
      Fold border of dough over the fruit (Pleating is easiest, squeezing pleats together) Brush dough with a little water and sprinkle with remaining 1 tbs of sugar.
    20. 20
      Bake 50 minutes to 1 hour, until edges are browned.
    21. 21
      Immediately slide galette off of pan onto cooling rack.
    22. 22
      Let cool at least 15 minutes; serve warm, at room temperature or re-heated in the microwave.
    23. 23
      ***OTHERFILLINGS*** Most fruits can be used, so this is a great dessert to be made with seasonal fruits.
    24. 24
      Adjust sugar amount to sweetness or tartness of fruit but this is a good basic recipe.
    25. 25
      Other reccomended fruits are: nectarines, cherries, peaches, summer or winter pears, plums, apricots or apples.
    26. 26
      With drier fruits like apples and winter pears it is recommended to brush fruit with 2 tbs melted butter and sprinkle with 1-2 tbs sugar before cooking.

      Easier than pie, and tartly delicious made with sliced fresh apricots. The crust turned out nicely flaky. I used half white flour and half whole wheat pastry flour. In the future, I might add a teaspoon of sugar to the flour for the crust. I only have a rimmed baking sheet, so I made an oblong instead of a round galette so I could fit it on the sheet, which worked fine. I also halved the recipe, which I would not recommend: it tastes fine, but is almost all crust; I think this is just meant to be bigger.

      I used pears and apples and enjoyed this (We like Pies now after discovering them) I did add nutmeg powder to the filling as I like the flavour. I used my baking sheet to bake this Rustic looking Pizza. The taste was incredible. Thank you for the introduction to this Pie alternative. :) Fay
