Strawberry Galette

“It looks like a strawberry pizza,” were the first words out of my charming husband’s mouth after seeing this scrumptious, gorgeous strawberry galette.

If making it had required more work, I would have had his head. But truth is, this little beauty is a lot of gain for not a lot of strain. All it takes is four ingredients (no, you didn’t read that wrong), plus an egg to brush on top.

I don’t know about you, but I think it’s just the bee’s knees.

Yea, this one won’t last you very long.

The best part is, this rustic French tart is both nice to look at and SO easy to make. You don’t even need to click below for the recipe, because you know what? I’ll tell you what you need to do right here. You need to make a pie crust, or buy one. Roll it out.

Cut up a carton of strawberries lengthwise, add them to a bowl, sprinkle them with 2 tbsp. cornstarch and 3 tbsp. sugar. Overlap the strawberries in the middle of the crust, fold it inward, and bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes. Done! Oh, and don’t forget to serve that bad boy with homemade whipped cream.

I think I’ll cut myself off right here, because it’s morning, I haven’t had breakfast yet, and a lovely piece of strawberry bliss is sitting all alone under the cake dome on my kitchen table. Someone needs to tend to it, and you know what? I’m just the gal for the job.

I really do hope you give this sinfully good galette a try. It’s completely fool-proof and utterly divine, for dessert or breakfast.

Strawberry Galette

Strawberry Galette

Yield: 4 to 6


  • 1 pie crust, store-bought or homemade
  • 10-15 strawberries, stems removed and sliced
  • 3 tbsp. white sugar
  • 2 tsp. corn starch
  • 1 egg, beaten


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Clean the strawberries, remove the stems and slice them lengthwise. Place the sliced strawberries into a bowl and sprinkle the sugar and cornstarch on top. Gently stir the strawberries until the sugar and cornstarch evenly cover the berries.
  3. Roll out pie crust. Layer the berries overlapping each other inside the pie crust starting one inch from the edge. Fold the edge of the dough over the strawberries. Brush the dough with the beaten egg. Sprinkle all over with 1 tsp. sugar. Bake for 35-40 minutes.
  4. Remove from the oven and let it cool for 5-10 minutes before slicing. Serve with homemade whipped cream.
  5. Enjoy!

  11. I’m actually dying to make one of these. I love how casual and inviting they are…

    It looks like like this effortlessly glamorous version of a pie or cobbler or something.

    If I could afford it, I would die to make this with boysenberries… Did you see the LA Times article about them? They basically don’t grown them in California anymore, I think there are only 70 acres devoted to growing true boysenberries. They are selling them at the Farmers Markets, but so pricey.

    Anyway, I’m just having one of the mornings, staring at all the pretty things you make.

  12. Hi Lauren!

    One of my favorite bloggers, Gaby, just posted about a blueberry galette:

    Both mine and hers are ridiculously easy to make. I’ve never thought of doing one with boysenberries though – That’s interesting! No, I didn’t see the Times article but I’ll have to look.

  13. Wow, that looks delicious. I hope you win.

  14. The strawberries are so delicious! You did a great job on the photos!

  15. Thank you both for your kind comments!

    It’s really hot outside where I am, but I was so determined to make this that I’ve got it in the toaster oven right now so I don’t heat up the place with the regular oven. I usually have to halve the temperature since the heating element is so close to the food, but it smells amazing so far and I’ve got a good feeling about this one! Thanks so much for the recipe!

    I tried this. It was awesome. I used frozen mixed berries and they worked great. Next time I will use just the egg white for the wash instead of the whole egg. Berries looked a bit dull because of the egg yolk.
