I have a confession to make: strawberry galette dessert is my all-time favorite recipe EVER! Seriously, I once baked this every single day for almost two weeks!  It has all the elements of a perfect dessert: a light crust, a creamy filling, and refreshing fruit.

Words cannot describe how delicious this dessert is, so you’ll just have to try it for yourself. 🙂 I should warn you, though: once you start eating, you won’t be able to stop. Expect to eat the whole dish without sharing! 😀

○ INGREDIENTS ○

Crust:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 100g butter (cold)
  • 1 egg
  • lemon crust
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Filling:

  • 100g Philadelphia cream cheese (I use the one with strawberries)
  • 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 lemon (juice)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla Strawberry filling:
  • 400g strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 lemon (juice)
  • 2 tablespoons sliced almonds

○ PROCEDURE ○

Crust:

  • In a medium bowl, mix the flour and baking powder.
  • Cut the cold butter into thin pieces and add them to the flour mixture.
  • Knead the mixture until the butter is incorporated into the flour (the mixture will become crumbly).
  • Add the egg, lemon crust, and vanilla.
  • Mix the dough and flatten it into a disk, then wrap it in plastic and put it in the fridge for at least one hour.

Filling 1:

  • Mix the cream cheese, lemon crust, and heavy whipping cream.
  • Add the sugar and vanilla.
  • Mix until everything is incorporated.

Strawberry filling:

  • Cut the strawberries into thin pieces.
  • Pour the honey and lemon juice over them.
  • Add sugar and vanilla. Mix, then let it sit for 4 minutes.
  • Add the flour and almonds. Mix well with a spoon.
  • Drain the liquid from the strawberries.
  • On a lightly floured work surface, roll the dough into a 10-inch circle one inch thick.
  • Transfer the dough to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

– Spread the cream cheese filling over the dough, but not all the way to the edges.
Put the strawberries on top, one by one.

  • Fold the bare edges of the dough toward the center.
  • Brush the edges with egg wash.
  • Put the almonds on the edges (optional).

  • Bake for 20–25 minutes at 360°F.
  • Remove the galette from the oven and let it cool for about 10 minutes before serving.

And that’s it! Enjoy! I’m sure you’ll love this dessert as much as I do. And if not, send me your leftovers and I’ll eat the rest myself! 🙂
