one 12” galette
It’s cherry season, folks, and as I mentioned here, there’s a cherry tree in my driveway. Sooooo, that means I made something even easier than pie. AKA a galette, which sounds way more complex because it’s a French word, but it’s even easier than pie, and pie is pretty darn easy. I think of a galette as a rustic hand pie, but galette sounds cooler, so yeah, I’m going to go with that.
Anywho, cherries + rhubarb + rosemary = sweet but not too sweet happiness. The rosemary in this confection totally makes it. It was honestly a last minute idea, but man was it ever a good one. I think the dessert gods whispered to my unconscious telling me I will think of myself as a genius if I added rosemary.
I made this galette for Father’s Day because my step-dad is the ultimate cherry lover. Anything with cherries is pretty much fair game for that guy. And the fact that I picked these cherries a mere 24 hours before making them into a crunchy, chewy, sweet confection made is 100x better! Who doesn’t love free produce they can pick literally out their front door? It’s totally a dream come true.
Enough writing because at this point I’m babbling away as I do/I think my college writing skills have gone into hibernation after getting out of school for spring. That is BAD NEWS, so I’ll try harder next time. Just go on and make this galette (hopefully with local cherries if you live in an area with them!). Maybe even go around wherever you live and hunt for cherry trees! Eeee so exciting, I tell you!
OH, also…invest in a cherry pitter if you want anything to do with turning fresh cherries into treats/just need to pit large quantities of them. It will make you a happy human.
Let’s get a pittin’!
