Easy Plum and Blackberry Galette

Galette (not to be mistaken for Gillette (shaver).  A galette isn’t as fancy smancy (its french of course) as it is sounds because its easier than pie (literally). A galette is basically the term for a free form crust. What you decide to toss inside is totally up to you. Savory or sweet?

Do you have to prepare food for the Labor Day weekend coming up?  I cannot even tell you how EASY this is. It takes 10 mins prep and then let the oven work its magic. You will look like a baking super star with this recipe. This is a great recipe for breakfast, dessert, a gift and feeding visitors.

I used puff pastry (not in the mood for dough making today). This galette has a brown flaky crust wrapped around juicy warm plums and blackberries topped with a dash of cinnamon and vanilla sugar. YUMMMMMMMMMMM.

I typically tell my husband my planned recipes for the week. Last night, he asked me if I was making my fruit guillotine today. REALLY. I had to explain to him his use of words. Good grief.

While I fear at the next company picnic I should be careful not to scream “Off with their heads” in order not to create panic because I am sure at this moment my husband is bragging at work about his beloved wife’s guillotine.

Enough with mid evil beheading talk and lets bake!
