Easter Galettes: The Recipe
Like with any bread needing proofing, the Easter Galettes require their dough to rise and double. Other than that, this recipe provides you an easy way to make them.
This recipe yields 20 small Galettes. You might want to consider doubling it if you have a family of four or more who appreciate good healthy desserts. They do well when stored for a week if not more.
Try them also with a cup of tea and…
Enjoy it! Life is Good!
