These are so simple! I just prepared the crust then used our Fabbri Amarena Cherries in syrup as a filling. After folding them up, it’s off to the oven!
Amarena Cherry Galettes:
yield: Makes 8 servings
active time: 25 minutes
total time: 3 Hours
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) chilled unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
2 tablespoons (or more) ice water
Blend flour and salt in processor. Add butter and blend, using on/off turns, until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add 2 tablespoons ice water and blend just until dough begins to clump together, adding more ice water by teaspoonfuls if dough is dry. Gather dough into ball; flatten into disk. Wrap in plastic and chill 1 hour. DO AHEAD: Can be made 2 days ahead. Keep dough chilled. Soften slightly at room temperature before rolling out. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Here, I divided the dough into four large portions (you could make 8 smaller ones, if you wish) and them out. I did rough circles of dough, filled the center with Amarena cherries and folded the edges of the dough over. Make sure to pinch any cracks to that the syrup does not seep out. You could also use a tart pan or circular cookie cutter for a more precise look.
Bake galette 20 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 375°F and continue baking until crust is golden, about 30 minutes longer. Remove from oven. Slide long thin knife between pan and galette. Let stand at least 10 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature and enjoy!
