Step Three: Roll Out The Pie Dough

Remove the dough from the fridge and roll it out on a floured surface until it is 12 to 14 inches in diameter. Remember, this is a rustic pie, so do not worry about your pie dough being perfectly round! Place the dough on a silicon baking sheet or greased baking sheet.

Step Four: Add the Filling, Mold the Pie, Add a Little Flair.

Spoon the strawberry mixture in the center of the disk. Then pinch and crimp the outer edges of the dough. The point is to create a bowl-like crevice so that the delicious filling will not bubble over.

If you wish, you can brush the outer crust with cold water, and then sprinkle sugar and freshly grated cinnamon on the outer crust for a nice (and tasty) visual effect.

Step Five: Bake For at Least 30 Minutes

Place the galette in a pre-heated over set at 350 degrees and bake for at least 30 minutes. Baking times of course, will vary. When the outer crust is a golden brown, your galette is ready to be removed from the oven.

Step Six: Enjoy!

If you’ve been buying those store-bought pies because the thought of making your own seemed daunting, this simple recipe will save you from those overly-sugary pies and score you some props at the next barbecue or family gathering for making something that seems really sophisticated. But in reality, baking a galette is very easy and is a great way to experiment with the fantastic fruit currently bursting in color and flavor this summer.
