Red Fife Galette Dough
Here’s our go-to recipe for galette dough. A galette is a free form pie, that is wrapped around filling either sweet or savory. Why do we love them? Well a galette is a lazy woman's pie. A galette is a happy woman's pie ;) You simply roll out the dough into a dough circle and top it: no pie pan or crimping required! Make this with whatever you have on hand; summer stone fruit is some of my favorite or use up leftover's for a savory pie (as seen above- leftover roast beef + cheese + chives).



Make the Dough

1.Place the dough and the salt in your food processor and blend a couple times.

2. Add chunks of cold butter and maple syrup and pulse to combine.

3. Slowly drizzle the ice water, one tbsp at a time, with the food processor running, until dough comes together and forms a ball (you may need more or less water).

4. Remove the dough ball and wrap loosely in plastic wrap. Press slightly to form a thick disk. Place in the refrigerator to chill for at least 1 hour. 

Assemble & Bake

 1. Preheat oven to 400F.

2. Remove the dough disk from the fridge, unwrap, and place on a floured baking tray. Flour your rolling pin and roll out the dough to make a large circle to about 1/8 inch thick.

3. Add your filling (I'll update this recipe soon with lots of sweet and savory ideas). In the picture here I just used up leftover roast beef with cheese and fresh chives for a quick and easy lunch. Place your filling in the centre of the dough, leaving about 2 inches on the edge. Fold the edges up.

4. Brush the dough with your beaten egg.

5. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and crispy.

6. Let cool slightly before slicing.
