1 1/4 cup flour

1 1/2 teaspoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 stick cold butter, cut into small (1/2-inch) cubes

4 to 6 Tbsp ice water


1 pint strawberries, hulled and sliced

3 Tbsp sugar

1 Tbsp flour

1/2 Lemon, juice and zest

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 Tbs unsalted butter, melted

Extra sugar for dusting

Fresh mint for garnish

Powdered sugar, for dusting


In a food processor, pulse the flour, sugar and salt until well mixed. Add the cubed butter, and pulse until the mixture comes together in little crumbs. Slowly add the ice water, a tablespoon or two at a time, pulsing after each addition, until the dough just begins to clump. Turn the dough out onto a clean surface and form into a disc. Sprinkle with a little flour on all sides, wrap with plastic and place into the refrigerator to chill for an hour.

In a large mixing bowl, toss strawberries with flour, sugar and vanilla, lemon juice and zest. Preheat the oven with the rack in the middle position to 425°F. Sprinkle vanilla extract over the fruit mixture. Once dough has chilled, separate it into 4 equal parts and roll each piece out onto a lightly floured surface to about a 3-inch circle. Gently lift up the rolled out dough and place it on a rimmed baking sheet.

Arrange fruit mixture in the center of each dough round. Fold the outer edges of the dough round over the filling, by about 2-inches all the way around.

Brush the dough of each galette with melted butter and sprinkle the entire top and edges with sugar. Bake the galette at 425°F for about 20-25 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool on a baking sheet for about 10 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar and garnish with fresh mint. If desired, serve with sweetened whipped cream.
