Roasted Strawberry and Pistashio Frangipane Galette/Crostata

August 31, 2017

Strawberry Pistachio Frangipane Galette 16This summer has been one of the best summers in a very long time. Looking back a year ago, during this time I was opening up boxes and trying to settle down. One year flew by fast and I can say that I have slowly adapted to the new Minnesota life. So far it has been a amazing and bountiful experience being here I can’t wait to see what life brings in the future. But for now, I am loving all the greens and the summer deliciousness like say, galette with ice cream for the hot afternoons, yum! July is one of the happiest months. It starts with fireworks from the July 4th celebrations and continues till my birthday celebrations. It gets even better when your entire family is there to celebrate with you. I couldn’t have asked for anything better this summer, especially for my birthday ??.White Pine Berry Farm 13“What do you want for your birthday,” my love asked me. Guess what I asked for? If you guessed a  Louis Vuitton or Ralph Lauren, you are mistaken. I asked for two trips; one to a strawberry farm and the other to the lake for fishing. Yes, these were the two things I wanted for my birthday: freshly picked strawberries and wild salmons. My family was shocked, given that my love for fancy clothes and bags is undeniable, my choices for a birthday gift were very odd. ?? I got to go for berry picking in Whitepineberry farm with my family before my birthday week. It was an awesome experience and oh goodness! their berries were absolutely delicious. We came home with 2 huge boxes full of 3 varieties of fresh, sweet and juicy strawberries. After this all I could think of is baking! I mean, what wouldn’t I make with all these berries? Crosata with strawberry jam, strawberry and pistachio galette and all other awesomeness they come with, I even froze some for my winter berry cravings?.White Pine Berry Farm 15White Pine Berry Farm 12White Pine Berry Farm 3White Pine Berry Farm 6

I especially had to bake a galette. I mean, how could I not bake it this summer? That’s like my favorite July or summer fruit quick dessert. And with my mom being with me this year, I definitely had to bake for her. So I decided to roast a big batch of strawberries in rum, balsamic vinegar and herbs. OMG! It is finger licking good. Initially, I decided to simply top off these roasted berries on ice-cream or pancakes but hey, how could I forget the galette. It feels like every summer I am on a galette mission ?. It’s a super fun and perfect dessert to have for breakfast, mid day coffee, evening tea or after dinner dessert. Last year I made almond frangipane and stone fruit galette and got so much love. So this year I decided to make pistachio frangipane. The frangipane freezes well, so you could make a big batch and freeze it for later use. The best way to enjoy this galette is to eat it warm with your favorite gelato or ice-cream. My family enjoyed it with strawberry ice-cream. 

I would love to know what’s your favorite fruit and favorite galette and how you enjoy it! Let me know if you do try this galette and what you enjoy it with. Do use hashtag #delusciousbites to show off your creations. 

Lastly, this post was meant for July but I have been unavoidably delayed by a few issues. I am sorry for that and I hope you bear with me. Thank you so much for your patience and until next time have a wonderful rest of the summer y’all!White Pine Berry Farm 4 White Pine Berry Farm 2White Pine Berry Farm 1 White Pine Berry Farm 7 White Pine Berry Farm 10 IMG_1267White Pine Berry Farm 8 White Pine Berry Farm 9White Pine Berry Farm 18Strawberry Pistachio Frangipane Galette 3 Strawberry Pistachio Frangipane Galette 2 Strawberry Pistachio Frangipane Galette 4Strawberry Pistachio Frangipane Galette 5 IMG_1258Strawberry Pistachio Frangipane Galette 10Strawberry Pistachio Frangipane Galette 11Strawberry Pistachio Frangipane Galette 12Strawberry Pistachio Frangipane Galette 13Strawberry Pistachio Frangipane Galette 14straberry pistachio frangipane galette 1_Strawberry Pistachio Frangipane Galette 15
