Pumpkin Galette is a rustic, easy to make dessert that is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
I am continuing with my pumpkin themed week for Bake-a-thon with this easy to make Pumpkin Galette today. I made this for our Thanksgiving dinner and it was liked by both kids and adults alike. Pumpkin pie spice flavor makes this dessert extra special.I am not a big fan of pies because of the crust. The crust is too buttery and thick for my liking. Also for some reason whenever I bake a pie, the crust ends up puffy (even when I blind bake it with beans etc.). So this pumpkin galette seemed like a perfect alternate. Recipe is from the Kitchn site.
This rustic and easy to make pumpkin galette is a great take on traditional pumpkin pie. The dough for the crust is very very easy to work with. It bakes beautifully into a buttery golden colored galette. Filling could not be any simpler — cream cheese adds a little tang, while maple syrup gives the warmth and depth of flavor.
I made a savory galette recently with caramelized onion. So feel free to play with the fillings — sweet or savory — a galette is easier than pie. Also depending on the filling used, this could be a appetizer, a main dish or a dessert.
