Help with Galette, please
I would like to make Deborah Madison's Winter Squash Galette. Problem is, I am really not good at making/rolling out dough. Is there something I can buy (puff pastry?) that I can use instead of making the galette myself? Whenever I have tried to make dough, especially the rolling-out part, it fails.
PLEASE do not tell me how easy it is to make a galette. I really am looking for store-bought alternatives.
Sure, you can buy puff pastry and/or refrigerated pie dough (i.e Pillsbury etc) to use instead
This is curious -- I found both piecrust and yeast dough versions of her recipe.
Here Madison uses piecrust, so you might want to do, as well. Hers is all butter, but I don't know if butter piecrust dough is readily available:
And here, she uses a yeast dough, so you might want to do, as well:
Either way -- It can be difficult to move an unbaked galette, so be sure to place the pastry on the baking sheet BEFORE filling it. A piece of parchment under the dough is also helpful.
Good luck! It looks like a delicious filling, with the combo of butternut squash, sage, and Parm.
Thanks for your replies. I'm gathering up the courage to make the galette as Deborah describes. Channa, I have the actual book Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone, and the recipe in the books says "Yeasted tart dough or Galette dough."
Hope this works out!!!
