It has been a wonderful and eventful summer, but I’m ready for the kids to go back to school. I hope I don’t sound like a bad mother, but entertaining 2 boys the ages of 3 and 6 for a whole two months was exhausting. We have been also doing a lot of entertaining, trying to get every family and friend together for a gathering before September.So this recipe has come in handy whenever I needed to make a quick dessert. It takes less than 10 minutes to prepare and it really showcases the best flavors the season has to offer.This recipe starts with a store-bought pie crust for convenience. Then you toss 4 cups of fruit with some sugar, a little cornstarch, and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Spoon the fruit mixture into the pie crust, fold the edges, and bake. Another beautiful thing about this galette is that it has all the flavors of a pie, but only takes a fraction of the time to make, and it looks just as gorgeous to serve.Just imagine, sweet, juicy chunks of fruit, bursting with flavor in a delicate flaky pie crust. This superb galette recipe works with any type of fruit you like and the taste is guaranteed to please.Print
