It is 10:30 pm on Monday night. I am packing for a business trip while setting up meals.for my husband this week, and suddenly I realize I don’t have a post set up for this week. It feels like an eternity since our last TWD which goes to show how much this has become part of my routine over the last year and a half (!), and much I really enjoy these challenges!
Nothing too crazy going on with my galette. I loved the dough and ate plenty of the dough (raw) and uncooked streusel (I left some off to allow for the jam to peek through). I used strawberry jam, which is a consistent favorite. Simple enough assembly, though I used a tart pan without the removable bottom and then just folded over excess dough as if I were making a “rustic” tart.
I don’t know what it was, but I felt like this was too sugary-rich for me after it was all baked, which is not common for me to say. Even my husband agreed (not that it will stop him from finishing most of this while I am away 😁). I won’t say I disliked it, but I am not too broken up that I won’t be eating more than one piece of it with my travelling. Perhaps it would need something more tart or acidic than the strawberry jam. For me this month the definite winner were the cookies made earlier in the month, though I think I might try this again another time with a different jam.
