You know that one of our favorite stores is Costco. We are so lucky to have one right here in Lodi and it takes about 15 minutes to get to. This past week we were on a mission to purchase a TV for the folks anniversary. We saw this ad on one of the TV’s for a Galette. It looked interesting because you can cook it right on your grill.
What is a Galette and how do you pronounce it? Wikipedia tells us that a Galette is a general term used in the French cuisine to designate various types of flat, round or freeform crusty cakes. It reminds me of our tarts. The website of FineCooking tells us a Galette is less fussy than a traditional tart and offers more crisp crust. (This recipe is NOT from Fine Cooking, I am sure!)
You will need these ingredients: Pie crust (in the refrigerated rolls section of your grocery store), 8 oz. cream cheese, 3 Tbs cornstarch, one egg, separated, 2 cups fruit (peaches, blueberries, mixed berries, you decided), 1 tsp vanilla, 2 Tbs powdered sugar, reg sugar and an oven or grill.
The recipe is here, at Three Many Cooks. We didn’t have the time to try this on the grill, so we threw it in the oven on a cookie sheet. It came out totally delicious!
Yummy! So easy.
