Units Scale


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into cubes
  • 1/2 cup Crisco, cold (shortening)
  • 1/4 cup cold water


  • 3 cups sliced strawberries
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped rhubarb
  • 1/4 cup sugar


  • Milk for brushing galette
  • coarse sugar to sprinkle on edges
  • 1 Tablespoon of cold butter cut into cubes


  1. In a food processor add flour and salt, blend until incorporated.
  2. Add cold butter cubes and pulse until butter resembles fine little crumbs.
  3. Add Crisco/shortening and pulse until mixture resembles fine little crumbs (don’t overdo it).
  4. Slowly add your cold water and pulse until the dough forms into a ball, or gently shape into a ball by hand.
  5. Flatten dough into a disc, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 15-30 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile prep your strawberries and rhubarb. In a large bowl add sugar, mix well to coat (note: if your fruit is really juicy add a little flour to thicken it – approx. 2 teaspoons).
  7. Let strawberries and rhubarb rest while the pastry is in the fridge.
  8. Preheat the oven to 400˚F.
  9. Roll out a large piece of parchment paper and tape the corners down, dust with flour. In the middle of the parchment paper roll out the dough into a circle to desired thickness.
  10. Pour fruit and juice into the middle of the circle leaving approx. 3-4 inches around the circle empty.
  11. Gently fold the edges of the pastry over the fruit, leaving the middle open.
  12. Brush the pastry edges with milk and sprinkle coarse sugar on top. Dollop butter over the top of the fruit.
  13. Slide your baking pan under the parchment paper and transfer the galette onto the baking pan.
  14. Bake for 40 minutes until edges are golden and the middle is set and bubbly (note: if the edges are browning too fast, cover with tin foil).
  15. Let the galette cool for approx. 10-15 minutes before serving.


If you have an extremely juicy filling, add 1 Tablespoon of all-purpose flour to the mixture. This will thicken the filling and help with the juices spilling out as it bakes.
