Mini Cherry Galettes
Prep time: 45 mins
Cook time: 20 mins
Total time: 1 hour 5 mins
  • 1¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp sugar, plus more for topping
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cubed and chilled
  • ⅓ cup cold water
  • 1 egg (for egg wash)
  • 2 cups fresh organic cherries, pitted and halved
  • ¼ cup sliced almonds
  1. Add the flour, sugar, salt and butter to a stand mixer and food processor, and mix until butter is evenly cut in.
  2. Slowly add the ice water while mixing until the dough starts sticking together (you don't want it too dry or too wet, and the dough should not be overmixed!).
  3. Gather the dough into a loose disc with floured hands and wrap in plastic wrap.
  4. Chill the dough in a refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  6. Slice the dough into 4 even parts, and roll out onto a floured surface to 5-inch wide circles. Do not worry about getting clean edges - it is part of the look!
  7. Transfer the galette dough to a baking sheet.
  8. Fill each galette with the sliced cherries and wrap the edges around it by moving around the galette in a circle, folding along the way.
  9. Beat the egg and add a little water to thin. Brush the edges of each galette with the egg wash until evenly wet.
  10. Sprinkle sugar on top of the galettes, followed by the sliced almonds.
  11. Bake for 20 minutes, until edges are golden brown.
