Mini Galettes

  • 350 grams (12.3 ounces) flour
  • 30 grams (1.1 ounces) sugar #1
  • 0.5 teaspoon salt
  • 200 grams (7.1 ounces) cold butter
  • 50 milliliters (1.7 fluid ounces) ice cold water
  • 2 tablespoons alcohol (vodka or brandy)
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 700 grams (24.7 ounces) strawberries
  • 50 grams (1.8 ounces) sugar #2
  • 15 grams (0.5 ounces) cornstarch
  • 1 egg for greasing
  • Almond flakes (optional)


  • Large Bowl

    Essential for mixing your ingredients evenly. A non-slip one can make the process easier.

  • Knife

    Chopping the cold butter into fine crumbs requires a sharp knife. A chef's knife works best.

  • Spatula or Wooden Spoon

    Helps in stirring the dough mixture effectively.

  • Rolling Pin

     Used for rolling out the dough into uniform circles. A heavy pin gives you better control.

  • Baking Sheet

    l; To place the galettes on for baking. Lining it with parchment paper prevents sticking.

  • Pastry Brush

     Perfect for brushing the egg wash on the dough for that golden finish.


Step 1

1. In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, and salt. Dice the cold butter and add it to the flour mix. Cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles fine crumbs. It's easier if you use a pastry cutter or food processor.

Step 2

2. Add the egg yolk and mix. In a separate small bowl, combine the very cold water, alcohol, and vinegar. Gradually add this mixture to the flour, stirring with a spatula or wooden spoon until the dough begins to come together. If the dough is too dry, add a little more cold water, 1 teaspoon at a time.

Step 3

3. Transfer the dough to a floured work surface and knead it quickly into a ball. Divide the dough into ten parts, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 2 hours. Chilling the dough helps relax the gluten and makes it easier to roll out.

Step 4

4. For the filling, mix the strawberries, sugar, and cornstarch in a medium bowl. Preheat the oven to 365°F (185°C).

Step 5

5. Roll each piece of dough into a circle. Place the rolled dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Spoon 2-3 tablespoons of the strawberry filling into the center of each dough circle. Fold the edges of the dough towards the center, gently pressing to seal.

Step 6

6. Brush the edges of the dough with a beaten egg and sprinkle lightly with sugar. Optionally, sprinkle almond flakes over the galettes for added texture and flavor.

Step 7

7. Bake the galettes in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 30-40 minutes. Check halfway through baking and rotate the baking sheet if necessary for even baking.

Step 8

8. Remove the galettes from the oven and let them cool for at least 5 minutes before serving. Serve warm or at room temperature. These galettes are delicious with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Step 9

9. Store any leftover galettes in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in a preheated oven or toaster oven for a few minutes before serving to crisp up the pastry.


These Mini Galettes are a hit at any event! Serve them warm with a scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream to delight your guests. 🍦

For a playful twist, drizzle a bit of chocolate or caramel sauce on top of the galettes. Decadent, right?

If you’re hosting a tea party, pair these galettes with your favorite afternoon tea. Their sweetness beautifully balances the richness of a good cup of tea. 🍵

Not sure what to do with leftovers? Warm them up the next day and enjoy them with a splash of whipped cream or a dollop of Greek yogurt for a tasty breakfast treat.


Going gluten-free? Replace the flour with a gluten-free blend. Just make sure it’s a 1:1 substitution. 🙌

Vegan version is a breeze too! Use a plant-based butter alternative and skip the egg wash. Opt for a flax egg, which is simply a mix of 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed with 2.5 tablespoons water. Let it sit for a few minutes and voila! 🥳


  • How do I know when the galettes are done?

    Bake until they’re golden brown, usually about 30-40 minutes. Check the edges for a nice crunchy texture.

  • Can I use different fruits for the filling?

    Absolutely! Blueberries, peaches, or even apples work wonderfully in this recipe. Just adjust the sugar as needed.

  • Why is my dough not coming together?

    Ensure your water is ice cold and add it gradually. Too much water at once can make the dough sticky and hard to manage.

  • How do I store leftover galettes?

    Place them in an airtight container and refrigerate. They’ll stay fresh for up to 3 days.

  • Can I freeze the dough?

    Yes, you can freeze the dough. Just make sure it’s tightly wrapped in plastic wrap and placed in a freezer bag. Thaw in the fridge before using.

  • How do I prevent the galettes from becoming soggy?

    Make sure to preheat your oven properly and avoid overfilling the galettes to keep them crisp.
