Galettes Are a Million Times Easier than Pie — Best of Summer

I am not quite sure when the last time I baked a pie was. It's not that I don't enjoy the occasional slice, but ever since galettes walked into my life roughly nine years ago, I've never looked back.

I dove deep into the task and scoured cookbooks and the internet to build a menu I thought would wow. Never having heard of galettes before then, I stumbled upon a few recipes for them that sounded delicious, and put them at the center of my menu. I won that little competition. My whole class cooked that menu for the luncheon, and I've been wooed by galettes ever since. Their lack of fuss made me a believer then and it continues to make me a believer now. I want to make you a believer too.
