Almond Galette

My sister made this beautiful dessert! Almond galette.

Looks awesome, doesn't it?!

Recipe is in current King Arthur Flour catalog and on their website http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/king-arthurs-almond-galette-recipe. Couldn't be easier, especially using frozen puff pastry. Only change I made was to use whole sheet rather than waste the pastry by trimming it and turning it into a circle. If you mixed up the almond center the night before, it would be perfect to bake in the morning to take to the office. The slashes look pretty bad- I had a design in mind but it didn't translate very well in practice.

Just gorgeous!  Great deserts should look and taste great too- just like this one.  I appreciate well rounded bakers who like to bake anything that goes in the oven.  You made my day.  Wish I could taste it!! I guess I will have to bake one myself :-)  Possibly 2.

We have so many great bakers on TFL don't we?  And so many budding to be great any time soon too!

and what else should you do in your spare time, when no breads are needed...

Very appetizing, Diane,
