How To Make This Yummy Galette Recipe


• 6oz all purpose flour

• 2oz unsalted butter - cut into small pieces

• 2oz sugar

• 2oz ground almonds

• 2 egg yolks

• 1/2 teaspoon salt


You can use a processor if you want to mix the ingredients but here are the instructions for making the dough by hand.

1. Sieve the flour into a large bowl and rub the butter into the flour until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.

2. Add the sugar, salt and ground almonds.

3. Add the 2 egg yolks and mix into the dough until it is smooth.

4. Place the dough in the refrigerator for about 1 hour to rest.

5. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured board until it is about 1/8 inch thick.

6. Use a small pastry cutter to cut out small round biscuits and place them on a lightly greased baking tray.

7. Brush lightly with egg.

8. Score the tops with a knife or a fork.

9. Sprinkle a little ground almonds in the centre and dust lightly with icing sugar.

10. Bake in a hot oven for about 8 minutes or when they are golden brown.

Cool on a wire tray and when cold keep in an air tight tin (if you can keep them - they won't last long!)
