Galette [guh-let] ~ noun any of various thin, round cakes or pastries, often with a filling or topping: a galette glazed with blackberry jam; (in this case.. a freeform tart!) Now I know what you're thinking.. "Make my own pastry.. umm no thank you!" but you know what.. I'd never made puff pastry before today. My first batch failed miserably. I did it the old fashioned way, working the butter in with your fingers, rolling out and folding the pastry 12 times whilst chilling it for 20 minutes after every 3. It took ALOT of time, and the pastry ended up overworked and didn't rise at all! Then I came across this ingenious trick, it literally took 10 minutes to throw together.. was chilled once and no folding required!
If you reallyyy want, you can use pre-made sheets of puff pastry from your local supermarket, and I won’t hold that against you... but at least give it one go! If I can pull it off, so can you!
