strawberry gallette

Strawberries are in season... and we'll be able to get nice big juicy strawberries for less than $2 per 250g punnet. Next project ~ would be homemade strawberry jam....yum.... but then I have to make a trip to the nearby strawberry field to look for 'seconds' strawberry tray, lucky if I could get 2 trays for the price of 1!!


  • sweet pastry
  • 1/2 cup roasted almond meal
  • fresh strawberries or other canned fruits like peaches etc
  • caster sugar
Mix strawberries with caster sugar in a bowl. Roll out the pastry... into a thin layer.....not to worry of the odd shape. Spread the almond meal on top, leaving about 4cm border. Place the strawberries on top of the almond meal. Wrap up the pastry.... bake at 180C for 30-40 minutes until golden brown. Serve with vanilla ice cream....
