Sable Breton Galette with Berries #French Fridays with Dorie


sable breton galette

How I was able to fit this tart into this week's crazy end of the school year schedule is beyond me. But how could I not. It has everything I love in it: shortbread, smeared with lemon curd, topped with berries with a glaze of red currant jelly which I found surprisingly delicious.

The shortbread crust alone is out of this world.

This tart was given a thumbs up by my son who will be graduating 8th grade tomorrow. My daughter who only had time to help roll out the dough, thought I did a fair job without her supervision. She is still in a bad mood because her softball play off game was cancelled again because of thunderstorms.

Lemon curd is one of my favorite topping but you could put any kind of spread that you like on it.

Husband and nephew silently gobbled up their slice. I later caught my hubby snatching a second piece. The remainder of this tart was eaten for breakfast.

Delicious for tea time, dessert, or even breakfast.

So can you go wrong with making this tart, it looks good and tastes even better. Make it!

  1. I'm going to try this! I looked at the recipe; it looks easy to make it gluten-free with almond flour.

    1. I have made this with the gluten free flour "cup 4 cup". But almond flour would be delicious and very true to a Mediterranean tart.

    1. Thanks Cher I was forced to decorate it on my own. My daughter was out. I think I've learned from an eleven year old.

    1. Try it next time. It really did give it a nice flavor that is hard to identify, makes it interesting, and it looks nice too.

  10. Delicious. I caught myself sneaking second pieces!

  11. You are right about this tart - it's just great, something special for everyone. When I made the shortbread galette, I was tempted to just eat it myself and serve my dinner guests ice cream topped with fresh fruit. I didn't but shortbread cookies are one of my top 5 favorites. I had the jelly but didn't make the glaze. So, I'll just have to make it again as I suspect you will. And, yes, I did have the remaining piece for breakfast. Good luck with wrapping up the school year - a busy time for you Moms.

    1. Thanks Mary,
      We made it through the festivities of the end of the middle school for my son and my daughter's softball picnic. They had to settle for 3rd place in the league because they couldn't get their last game in... oh well. I wish I had a shortbread cookie right about now.

  12. Diane, what a truly beautiful presentation of your Sablé Breton with all those wonderful berries - you did add the red currant jelly as a glaze, it looks like a very nice finish to this dessert. We often eat a piece of leftover tart for breakfast as well and who would not love a piece of this with a cup of morning tea or coffee - good luck with wrapping up the school year, we still have another four weeks to go.
    Have a lovely Sunday!

    1. Oh, my 4 more weeks... I hope your weather isn't as beautiful as ours. The kids got out just as the weather got beautiful. Soon it will be muggy and hot. Have to turn the oven on one more time and make this dessert again.

  13. Gosh yours is just lovely ! And I am suitably impressed that you knocked this out with everything on your very busy plate this week - I failed on that account but enjoyed every morsel of Nana's amazing results. Which also included a helping for breakfast too :) Yes, I will be revisiting this one for sure. Congrats on the 8th grade graduation !

    1. Thanks my son is very excited to start high school. Hopefully he will apply himself with a little more effort than he did in middle school. I did cheap by using jar lemon curd but I think if you use a quality product no will know or mind.

  14. I love the arrangement of your berries. Like you, I loved everything about this tart. I know you don't love baking, but it looks like you did a great job on the crust. Yay! Congratulations to your son on his graduation. High school, here he comes!
