Strawberry Rhubarb Galette

Strawberry Rhubarb Galette

My dad was in town for Memorial Day weekend.  I am glad he was able to visit during rhubarb season because he loves strawberry rhubarb desserts. Our rhubarb is still going strong, so I surprised my dad with a strawberry rhubarb galette for dessert one evening.

My dad doesn’t like to sit and relax on vacation, he likes to keep busy and help us with projects. This visit, he tackled our yard. My dad loves flowers, gardening, and getting dirty. He helped Josh spruce up our yard. They worked hard all weekend long. They ripped out old shrubs, created a rock border for the backyard, planted new flowers, and started our garden.  The yard looks fantastic.

I helped by picking out flowers, staying out of the way, and preparing meals. My dad also loves to cook and bake so he insisted on helping in the kitchen too. We can’t get him to relax:) I did make the strawberry rhubarb galette on my own-well Josh helped, but my dad wasn’t allowed to help. His only job was to eat and enjoy. He devoured his dessert.

The strawberry rhubarb filling is sweet with a tart twist. The cornmeal and turbinado sugar add a pleasant crunch to the crust. This is one of my favorite galette recipes. I will be making it all summer long with different fruit fillings.

We are glad my dad was able to visit and help us around the house. We are also glad he was able to finally rest and enjoy a piece of this strawberry rhubarb galette-we topped his off with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. He worked hard and deserved a special treat.

Strawberry Rhubarb Galette

Yield: Serves 6

Cook Time: 1 hour

Ingredients:

Dough:

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup coarse cornmeal
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cold butter, cut into small pieces
1/3 cup buttermilk

Strawberry Rhubarb Filling:

2 1/2 cups sliced strawberries
1 cup chopped rhubarb
1/3 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon lemon zest

1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons turbinado sugar

Directions:

1. To make the dough, combine flour, sugar, cornmeal, and salt in a processor; pulse 2-3 times. Add butter and pulse 4-5 times, or until mixture resembles coarse meal. With the processor running, slowing pour the buttermilk through the chute, processing until the dough forms a ball. Remove the dough ball and adhere any remaining pieces of dough to it, then wrap in plastic wrap or parchment paper. Refrigerate for at least 45 minutes before rolling out.

2. Center a rack in the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F.

3. To make the strawberry rhubarb filling, combine all ingredients in a medium bowl, and toss gently, making sure that the cornstarch is coating the fruit. Set aside.

4. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and place on a sheet of parchment paper. Starting at the center of the dough, roll out, forming a 14-15-inch wide circle. Place the dough with parchment paper on a baking sheet. Add the fruit mixture to the center of the dough, leaving a 2-inch border. Fold the border over the filling, overlapping where necessary and pressing gently to adhere the folds.

5. Lightly brush the edge of the dough with the egg and sprinkle with turbinado sugar. You don't need to use the whole egg, just enough to brush the edge of the galette.

6. Bake for 1 hour, or until crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly. Transfer the baking sheet to a wire rack to cool for at least 20 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

*Note-you can make the galette dough in advance. It will keep in the refrigerator for 3 days. Try serving the galette with vanilla ice cream for an extra special dessert.

    It looks like you bought the green variety of rhubarb, is that true? I’ve been looking all over for it ever since Deborah Madison’s new cookbook has green rhubarb recipes.

    • twopeas replied: — June 2nd, 2010 @ 5:19 pm

      We have four rhubarb plants-one is a green plant. I used a mix in this galette. I will have to get that cookbook, I love Deborah Madison.

    This looks just perfect for summer. I made a galette with raclette cheese, turkey, gherkins and chilli sauce and was so inlove with it i made some sweet ones too. Strawberry and rhubard is just a perfect combo for me!

    Maria, I’m thinking you may have a serious addiction to rhubarb and strawberries. I LOVE all the fruit recipes lately. Mainly because of my addiction to fruit. Thanks for all the great posts!

    • twopeas replied: — June 3rd, 2010 @ 9:01 am

      I am just trying to use up our rhubarb. We have four plants and I hate to waste. It is a good addiction to have:)
