Last night I was able to watch a couple of Baking with Julia shows on PBS that I had on my DVR. I love that there is a book to go along with the show. So, if you are looking for a great cookbook then you should buy it, Baking with Julia by Dorie Greenspan.
This week the TWD group was tasked with baking a Berry Galette (pg. 377). I chose to use apples instead of berries this time around and it turned out better than I could have imagined. I added cinnamon and a touch of nutmeg. The galette was gone in a matter of minutes.
Since the dough for the galette (pg. 371) was for two 8 inch galettes, I went ahead and tried the Cheese and Tomato Galette (pg. 429). That also turned out good but unfortunately, it wasn’t as enjoyable after it had cooled.
The galette dough incorporated cornmeal which I thought added a lot great texture. The recipe called for sour cream, which I am not a fan of. I opted for buttermilk instead.
So, with the Cheese and Tomato Galette, I didn’t have any cheese on hand besides Ethan’s cheese sticks…I didn’t want to go to the store again! I feel like I am there everyday…Does anyone else feel this way?! It worked out just fine though.
I would definately make the apple galette again using the galette dough. A keeper!
