Strawberry Shortcake Galette
A Strawberry Shortcake Galette because the pastry is buttery & “biscuity”, and the baked fresh strawberries become all kinds of “jammy” and delicious. Best served with clotted cream, but whipped cream or vanilla ice-cream will work too. This baked treat has me day dreaming about carefree British summer days. A real effortless showstopper, perfect for tea time, dessert or even brunch.

Note, the pastry is super easy to make, I simply whizz it up in a food processor.ย  However, it needs a good chilling session in the fridge before working with it. So plan a little ahead or make the night before. It’s worth the wait, I promise ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ingredients
  

  • 375 ml all purpose flour
  • 60 ml caster sugar
  • 2.5 ml salt
  • 135 g chilled butter cut into cubes
  • 1 egg large
  • 5 ml vanilla essence
  • +- 20 ml ice cold water
  • 1 egg beaten, for egg wash

Strawberry Filling

  • 500 g strawberries halved
  • 45 ml caster sugar
  • 5 ml fresh lemon juice
  • 5 ml vanilla essence
  • 10 ml corn flour

To Serve

  • +- 15 ml icing sugar for sprinkling
  • 250 ml clotted cream

Instructions
 

  • For the pastry: Place dry ingredients into a food processor with cubes of butter. Blitz until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the egg, vanilla and water and blend until it all comes together to form a soft dough.
  • Shape in a ball and flatten slightly. Wrap and chill for at least 2 hours or even overnight.
  • Place all the strawberry filling ingredients into a bowl and gently mix until evenly combined and coated.
  • Preheat oven to 180 Degrees Celsius.
  • Roll out chilled pastry (1 cm thick) onto baking paper and transfer onto a baking tray.
  • Arrange strawberries onto the pastry, leaving a generous border around the apples. Fold the edges inwards.
  • Brush pastry edges generously with beaten egg.
  • Bake for +- 30 minutes. The pastry should be golden and crisp and the strawberries should be soft with a bit of viscous strawberry sauce oozing out.
  • Dust with icing sugar and serve with clotted cream, whipped cream or vanilla ice-cream.
