Pie Crust Recipe For Galette Baking

This pie crust is flaky and delicious! Perfect for all sorts of galette baking!

Servings: Makes 2 pie crusts

What You Need:

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 cup (2 sticks) of unsalted cold butter chopped

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon of sugar

1/2 cup of ice cold water

Steps:

1. Add the flour, salt, sugar, and butter into a medium/large bowl and mix until crumbly like texture (I like and prefer to use my hands). The other option is to use a food processor and pulse until butter is broken up and no more large chunks remain.

2, Next add the cold water to batter and combine together until one large dough ball.

3. Divide dough in half. Freeze one half for another time and place other dough ball in the fridge until ready to bake.

4. When ready to bake line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Roll out dough into a circle but be sure to not make it too thin. Fill galette with filling and then fold the edges. Brush the edges with egg white. Bake at 375 for 40-45 minutes.

Enjoy!

That’s it! Now you can get creative with your fillings!

Apple Or Peach Filling Recommendation:

Slice 4 medium apples or peaches unpeeled or peeled and toss in a bowl with 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, 3/4 teaspoon of cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Once mixed well place filling in prepared dough, topping off the apples or peaches with 1 tablespoon of chopped butter.

Enjoy with vanilla ice cream!
