Fruit desserts are my favorite dessert and Galettes are definetly at the top of my list. They are so beautiful and rustic. I’m convinced there’s not a bad Galette in the world.
I normally make apple Galettes but since my husband loves strawberries and our Anniversary was coming, I thought “Strawberry Galettes for Two” was deliciously appropriate.
This recipes makes two individual Galettes but you can double it and make it big enough for 4 to 6 people.
Find the recipe below!
