I had one pie crust to use up so I decided to bake a strawberry galette with my daughter. It was a fun afternoon cooking with my little sous chef. I think she really liked placing the strawberry slices onto the pie crust and she enjoyed making the whipped cream. This was a wonderful dessert that my entire family loved. Needless to say my daughter was very proud of herself.Strawberry Galette with Homemade Vanilla Whipped Cream: Recipe and photos by For the Love of Cooking.net
- 1 pie crust
- 10-15 strawberries, stems removed & sliced
- 2 tbsp white sugar
- 2 tsp corn starch
- 1 egg, beaten
- Raw sugar
- 1 half a pint of Whipping cream
- Powdered sugar, to taste
- 1 vanilla bean, seeds removed
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silpat mat.
Clean the strawberries then remove the stems and slice them lengthwise. Place the sliced strawberries into a bowl and sprinkle the sugar and corn starch on top. Gently stir the strawberries until the sugar and corn starch are evenly covering the berries.
Layer the berries overlapping each other inside the pie crust starting one inch from the edge.
While the galette is baking, make the whipped cream. Pour the whipping cream in a large bowl, add powdered sugar until the cream is at your desired degree of sweetness (I used 2 tablespoons). Gently remove the seeds from the vanilla pod and place into the whipping cream. Using a beater, mix on high until the whipping cream is thick and fluffy.
Remove from the oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes before slicing. Serve with homemade whipped cream. Enjoy.
