As I pulled into the driveway after a 5am spin class this morning, the rise of the garage door slowly revealed a pair of bare feet waiting for me. A sleepy boy, with his sun-kissed, freckled face smiled and whispered a sweet, ‘good morning’ as I got out of the car to enter the house. I knew my intention of sharing a post about our Tuesday cherry picking was about to change, as my early risers had other plans. Breakfast, snuggling up to talk about ideas for the day that include friends and swimming.
So, instead of a lovely detailed post about our time amongst the cherry trees yesterday, I offer up an abundance of pictures and a simple recipe for a sour cherry galette. For the crust, I used the whole wheat pie crust recipe from Erin Alderson’s wonderful, new offering, ‘The Homemade Flour Cookbook’. Of course you can use whatever your favorite pie crust recipe may be, but the nutty, hearty wheat from Erin’s crust adds to the already rustic quality of this galette. I served it topped with vanilla bean whipped cream, but it would be equally delicious with vanilla ice cream. I’m already thinking this might be a great Fourth of July dessert. Enjoy!
