The epitome of summer; sweet cherries and fresh rhubarb wrapped in a delicate pie crust!
You’ve probably had strawberry rhubarb but the next best thing is cherry rhubarb! The sweet cherries pair perfectly with tart rhubarb making for a balanced combination that is divine in a pie crust.
I love making galettes because they’re basically like an open faced pie but made on a baking sheet rather than in a tin which makes it even easier! You simply roll out the crust and then fold in the edges…that’s it!!
I brushed the edges with a little egg white and sprinkled with sugar for a nice touch but you don’t even have to do that! Have you ever made a galette?
Also side note, did you know, rhubarb is actually a vegetable and is not related to celery even though it resembles it’s look? The leaves of the rhubarb plant are toxic to humans while the stalks are full of antioxidants and offer a great source of vitamin K. So eat plenty of rhubarb, just not the leaves!
With the combination of cherries, this galette is actually super rich in antioxidants…nothing like a dessert that’s good for you too!
Let me know if you try this out and please take pictures as I love to see how it looks! Enjoy!!
