What are a Galettes
Galettes are a very simple recipe that uses pie dough and a fruit filling. The difference between a galette and a pie is that with a pie, you are forming the pie. With galettes, you are simply placing the filling on the pie dough and then wrapping the pie dough around it. It is relatively formless. The galette is baked around the filling to create a simple yet delicious dessert.

How to Store a Strawberry Galette
When you have made this galette, you can store it on the counter at room temperature for up to 3 days or you can store it in the refrigerator for up to a week and a half. No matter where you store the french dessert, you will want to make sure it is wrapped well to prevent it from being exposed to the air. The air will make the dessert taste stale and hard. This will cause it to spoil sooner.
Can the Dessert be Frozen?
If you find that you have more dessert than you can eat in the time before it spoils, you can also freeze the leftovers. You can cut it into individual pieces in order to be able to take out a serving at a time or you can keep the galette together and freeze it in one piece. No matter what size it is in, be sure to wrap it well with plastic wrap. I like to wrap it a few times, then place it inside a freezer bag. This protects it from getting freezer burn. The dessert can be frozen for up to 3 months. I like to write everything about the dessert on the freezer bag, like what it is and when it was made. This way, nothing gets wasted because it spoils in the freezer.
How to Serve the Strawberry Dessert
After the dessert has come from the oven, give it time to cool. This lets the filling gel and stay together. I like to serve it while it is still a little bit warm. Add some whipped cream or vanilla strawberry ice cream over the galette and enjoy.
Ingredients in Easy Strawberry Galette Recipe
- premade pie crusts
- fresh whole strawberries
How to Make Easy Strawberry Galette Recipe
Preheat oven to 350 °F.
Allow pie crusts to sit at room temp (or follow directions on box to thaw, if frozen).
Add sugar to strawberries in a bowl and stir until coated.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Open pie crusts and put half of the strawberries in the center of each crust.
Begin to fold crust over the center, leaving a “hole” in the middle showing the strawberries.
Do this by folding one side of the crust toward the middle, then the next, adding a little water if needed, and pinch seams.
(This is easiest done on the baking sheet so you don’t have to lift it up and place in on risking spilling.)
Beat the egg with water and brush over crusts.
Sprinkle crust with a bit of sugar.
Bake for 20-22 min, until crust is golden brown and cooked through.
There will probably be some juice that comes out while cooking.
If there is a lot of juice, avoid the crust from getting soggy by transferring to a wire rack with baking sheet underneath to catch any drips.
