A galette is a rustic pastry that can contain any number of fillings. Some popular choices include apples, blueberries, raspberries and more. The pastry is a free form style dough that is made in the shape of a circle or rectangle. It’s not as thick as your standard pie crust. The edges tend to be crimped and can be covered with foil to keep them from burning during cooking. I love to make them ahead because they’re a bit time-consuming and need some time to cool. they are too good to not try!

This is a rich German cake with a light texture. It is very much like a cross between a sweet shortbread and a sponge cake.

It may sound difficult to accomplish, but these holes are easy to make using an old-fashioned rolling pin.
