Directions to make Galettes :

 

  1. Whisk the ingredients until the dough is smooth with no lumps. Let it rest for 1 hour.
  2. Heat your crepe pan to hot and melt a little butter in it. Pour a thin layer of dough and spread it out so it covers the pan. Cook for about 30 seconds on each side.
  3. Lower the heat and add the fillings. Fold the galette in half, or each side up to still see a little of the fillings.
  4. If you want to serve all the galettes at once, keep the finished ones in the oven (140°F).

 

All galettes can be enjoyed with traditional hard Breton cider.

Just returned from an amazing trip with our family, including 3 teenage boys. Emilie carefully listened to our request to focus on military history and arranged an itinerary with just the right balance of history, culture, art, and military history. We had incredible guides to Paris, WWI, and WWII sites plus unique B&Bs. So many memories!
