This Rhubarb Galette is tangy and sweet and oh so good! Classic and delicious.
Once we’re deep into summer I crave all. the. pie. Peach pie, strawberry pie, apricot pie, apple pie, blueberry pie…any kind of pie. Basically, if it’s a fruit I turn it into pie…it’s the best way to use up ripe fruit! And since I had a drawer full of rhubarb in my fridge, I decided to make this Rhubarb Galette…which is basically a rustic pie.
Galettes are actually one of my favourite ways to make a pie. I love how rustic they look with all that flaky beautiful crust wrapped around a delicious filling. I also like that galettes are so much easier and less fussy to assemble than a traditional top and bottom pie crust. Sometimes if I want to make things even easier I will use a pre-made bought puff pastry crust…shhhhhh.
But for this Rhubarb Galette I made a homemade traditional pie crust to hold it all together and it is delicious. There’s nothing like a homemade pie crust.
The crust is tender and flaky, the filling bursting with tangy and sweet rhubarb flavour. So delicious.
Here are Some Rhubarb Galette Recipe Tips for You:
You may find that there is a bit too much pie dough in this recipe, so if you do have a little extra use a cookie cutter and cut out little shapes in the excess dough. Brush them with milk and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes, or until they are golden brown. Then eat them like cookies.
I use a glaze for the centre of the pie, so that the rhubarb doesn’t dry out during baking.
