Summer Cherry Galette

I had cups of cherries from the farmers market, and after seeing tons of scrumptious pictures of Galettes on my IG feed, my heart was set on it. While California has been so hot, I did not want to spend an extra minute standing in the kitchen and bake. So I decided to go ahead with the store bought pastry sheets than the conventional galette dough. Puff pastry made this cherry galette quick, simple and easy!

Ingredients: Serves 6-8 people

For cherry mix:

2 cups fresh cherries, washed, pitted and cut in halves
1/4 cup sugar, or to taste
2 tbsp flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt

For the puff:

1 puff pastry sheet, rolled into a round shape

For the egg wash: 
1 egg
2 tbsp milk
1 1/2 tbsp brown sugar, for sprinkling


To make an egg wash: 

*In a bowl, whisk egg and milk. Keep it aside.

To make the Galette: 

*Preheat oven to 375F, and line the baking tray with parchment paper.
*In a bowl, combine cherries, sugar, salt, vanilla extract, and flour. Let stand for 10-15 minutes
*Roll the puff pastry into 10 to 12-inch circle.
*Fill the dough with the cherry mix at the center leaving a 2-inch border. Now, fold over edges to cover the cherry mix. Brush pastry crust with egg wash and then sprinkle with brown sugar.
*Bake for 40-45 minutes until the puff pastry is golden brown or the cherry mix bubbles.
*Serve this delectable galette with vanilla ice cream, if desired.
