galette kind of gal

last month i spent a week out at my parent's lakehouse. and while i love R&R as much as the next girl, after i few days, i tend to get a little bored. i got into a baking mood and had it in my mind that i REALLY wanted to bake a pie from scratch. but when i started looking up recipes, i realized most of them require tons of ingredients and take two days to make from start to finish... so i gave up on that project real fast. now, my mind is set on galettes. they've got all my favorite parts of a pie - flaky crust, sweet gooey center - with a little less hard work. these six recipes are at the top of my list to try. - carm
