Sablé Breton Galette with Berries # French Fridays with Dorie

Yet another berrylicious dessert on the block !! and how gorgeous is it ?  

This week the Doristas chose to make Sablé Breton Galette with Berries. Though the dessert sounds rather complicated, it is really simple to whip up... the buttery crust is wonderful ! even before i put it in the oven I knew that it is going to be a favorite in our house. the butter and the sugar smelt so good. and of course it did not disappoint us. since my little one, is not fond of sauces, i gave him some crust  and berries while we were having the dessert. and his immediate reaction was "um more.." :-)  

and the lemon curd was simply A-W-E-S-O-M-E !! the easiest I have ever made and best I have ever tasted.. and just so that you know I have sampled lots I love lemon curd and without failure order a lemon tart for myself whenever I see one. since this one is whipped using whole eggs and not just the yolk it is lighter. plus you so not need whip it over a water bath (isn't that great ??).

of course this recipe uses tons of butter and might not be a dieter's favorite. but once in a while, an indulgence so delightful is always good for the soul.  it keeps you happy and satisfied... don't you agree ?

As a member of french friday's with Dorie I am not supposed to post the recipe on the blog. However you can find this particular recipe in Dorie's   July, 2009, Newsletter.  For more delicious recipes order your copies of Around the French Table from Amazon or from The Book Depository and join us as we cook our way through the book.
