Individual Strawberry Rhubarb Galettes

It’s spring and rhubarb is in season. I love rhubarb with or on just about anything; last spring I made rhubarb crumb bars which were amazing. Yesterday afternoon I made individual strawberry rhubarb galettes using Martha Stewart’s cornmeal crust recipe. A galette is similar to a pie but more rustic. They turned out beautifully and super delicious. In hindsight I made them a little too big. I got four out of one crust recipe. I think the proportions would work better for 6.

I didn’t really follow a recipe. I’ve made galettes a hundred times so I kinda just threw it all in a bowl. Here’s where I got the idea to make them individually and another galette recipe and how to video on marthastewart.com. Enjoy!

    I have always wanted to make a gallette. I have never even tasted one, but they look so delicious.

    Yours are even more gorgeous than mine! Brava for not using a recipe. This is absolutely the kind of thing to do by feel.

    Hmm, will have to try a strawberry rhubarb galette. My grandmother made the best S-W pies. They were just sweet/tart enough to make you drool. Seriously!

    Oh do those look good, all the pictures of the food you bake makes my mouth water ! Have you ever considered a career in cooking, I know there is no time with the house renovation, maybe after ?

    Maybe? After the house I would love to start a family, then maybe have a store, and then maybe a restaurant but only if someone else who is a trained chef would do it with me!

    Oh and I would to go to grad school for painting….

    Rhubarb seems to grow like a weed in Yorkshire, where I grew up. Here in LA it is hard to get and I miss those rhubarb pies.
    We used to eat it raw and dip it in sugar too (still made you wince a bit)
    Thanks for posting these – they made my mouth water

    Hi Katy. This is my second or third visit to your blog. I have enjoyed looking at your archives so much. It’s uncanny how your taste in interiors is so similar to mine. I shall be back many times in the future. I wondered if you’ve ever read a magazine called The English Home (http://www.theenglishhome.co.uk/), it’s one of my favourites. I think you’d really enjoy it. A x
