Fresh Strawberry Galette

This beautiful and colorful Fresh Strawberry Galette with Almond Crust emphasizes the sweet juiciness of the strawberries without much added sugar.

It is the perfect spring and summer dessert!

Just outside the front door of my very first childhood home was a patch of strawberries.

I don’t remember much else about that house, but it holds a special place in my memory because it was the beginning of my love affair with strawberries.

For me, strawberries mark the beginning of summer.

It’s time for warmer days, late nights, pool parties, picnics, and I’ve got a basket full of fresh strawberries here to get it all started!

Hardly anything tastes better than a fresh, juicy strawberry in the early days of summer.

The kids and I can, and often do, eat flats of fresh strawberries plain, plucking off the stems as we dig in.

This week I let my strawberry obsession get the best of me and I have far more strawberries waiting for me in the fridge than can be eaten in one sitting.

I’ve been trying to come up with recipes that would showcase the strawberries’ naturally delicious flavor and I finally met with success.

This Fresh Strawberry Galette emphasizes the sweet juiciness of the strawberries without much added sugar.

I like my galette served with a big dollop of lightly sweetened, freshly whipped cream, but this galette can be dressed up a number of ways.

This tastes so good with chocolate or caramel sauce drizzled over the top, or with a bit of chopped fresh mint sprinkled on top of each slice just before serving 

I’m looking forward to all the fresh produce that will be making an appearance at the markets here this summer, especially the peaches and blueberries.

The strawberries, however, are still my favorite and this recipe is the best way I can think of to usher in a new season.
