What do you do when two pounds of strawberries are on sale at your local grocery store for $3.99? You buy ten pounds, make mini strawberry galettes and freeze the rest to use for future recipes. I hope you caught that foreshadowing I did there.


I can’t believe we are creeping into July’s double digits. It feels like just yesterday was Christmas and to make matters worse, Michael’s craft store has already put out their Fall decorations and I want to cry. I haven’t done one “summery” thing this year. It’s crazy how quickly you can get caught up in a work routine and before you know it, it’s July 8th, the summer is half over and you still haven’t put on a bikini time! I did manage to drive by the beach yesterday coming home from a photo shoot–does that count?


Yum

Enough about my boring summer and more about these juicy, gluten-free, strawberry galettes. If you are an incredibly simple baker and by simple I mean lazy, these galettes are for you!

Galettes are essentially pies for the simple folk. The best part about them? The more you mess them up, the more rustic they start to look. Basically, this is a fool proof recipe that tastes just as good as a well constructed pie.

Here are a few other of my favorite lazy pies…I mean galettes.

Blueberry Lemon and Thyme Gluten Free Galette – This rustic and simple blueberry lemon and thyme galette is a perfect way to celebrate spring time. This delicious galette recipe is bursting with blueberries with a hint of lemon flavor.

Rustic Gluten Free Galette with Dark Sweet Cherries – This delicious cherry gluten-free galette tastes just as wonderful as cherry pie and it so much easier to make!
