Instructions
Make the pastry:
  1. Add the flour and the butter to a food processor and pulse several times until mixture resembles coarse meal (and butter pieces are reduced to about the size of peas). (NOTE: You can also use a pastry cutter if you don’t have a food processor.)
  2. Pour the mixture into a bowl. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of water around the rim of the bowl, toss with a fork to incorporate into the mixture, drizzle another 2 tablespoons of water, toss with a fork. Repeat this process until all water is incorporated. When done, mixture should easily stick together when gathered between your hands.
  3. Separate the mixture into halves in the bowl and begin lightly kneading each ball until all the mixture sticks together. (If it is still too dry, drizzle a little more water (a tablespoon at a time) into it and toss the mixture with a fork. You want the dough to be sticky enough to adhere together without crumbling, but you don’t want it to be wet. Also, do not over-knead.)
  4. Form two discs out of the mixture, sprinkle flour over the discs, and wrap in plastic. Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes prior to using. (If you won’t be using both, you can freeze the extra one for later.)
Prep the strawberries:
  1. Prep the strawberries by washing and drying them, removing the stems, and slicing them into four slices each. Set aside.
Make the ricotta:
  1. Mix the ricotta with the powdered sugar, and use a spoon to incorporate. Set aside.
Assemble the tart:
  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  2. Roll the chilled pastry dough into a 1/4” thick disc. Lay the rolled out crust onto the baking sheet you’ll be baking on. (NOTE: once the dough is filled it is too hard to move. So, don’t skip this step!)
  3. Smear the sweetened ricotta at the center of the disc, leaving a 1 1/2” space between the ricotta and the edge.
  4. Layer the sliced strawberries (NOTE: ALL berries work with the ricotta) over the ricotta, and, using a zester, zest a lemon over the strawberries.
  5. Fold the outer edges of the dough over the filling in an accordion fashion to slightly cover the edge of the filling.
  6. Wash the exposed dough with egg wash and sprinkle with baking sugar. (NOTE: If you don’t have coarse baking sugar, you can always use regular sugar.)
  7. Bake in preheated oven for 18-24 minutes. The crust should be golden brown when ready.
  8. Cool slightly to allow the ricotta to set, then slice and serve!

    Just confirming – this recipe makes two crusts for two different desserts, correct? And each desert serves four, or eight(if you make two)?
    Looks delicious! Wonder if I could put in some rhubarb. I never know the amount of sugar to put in rhubarb. But love the combination of strawberry and rhubarb. Thank you

      Hi Susan,
      Sorry for any confusion- the recipe will be enough for two Galettes. You can freeze the extra dough portion and store the extra filling in the refrigerator. This dessert is meant to be a bit rustic, so they’ll vary in size a bit depending on how you fold the dough edges. You should be able to get 4-8 servings per Galette depending on how you portion them, and how hungry you are!

      Yes, two crusts – and each crust will serve about 6-8 people (depending on the serving size). If I only need one when I make my dough, I freeze the other. And, rhubarb would be so yummy in this!
