|Sablé Breton Galette with Berries|
Summer officially begins today, as the summer solstice marks the longest day of the year. This year's summer solstice also stands out because, it will be followed shortly after by the largest “supermoon”.
Since summer is finally upon us, it’s time to celebrate, and do something to welcome those long warm days of the season. Maybe enjoy a day at the beach…I crave those long relaxing days of sitting on the sand, reading a great mystery! Or a picnic might be more your style! I love packing a simple lunch to enjoy outdoors. However, you could just bake this wonderful Sablé Breton Galette with Berries. It’s this weeks pick for French Friday’s and, is a perfect way to welcome in the summer season. This galette just screams summer! A lovely buttery sable cookie crust (french shortbread), with lemon curd and lots and lots of fresh berries.
|Lovely to look at and delicious to eat|
To assemble, spread with lemon curd and arrange the berries on top. I used store bought lemon curd but you could make your own.
The internet is full of lovely fresh berry desserts, to help you welcome in the summer, but if your only going to try one, this is the one!! An absolute winner! Easy, delicious and impressive! Happy Friday everyone! And Happy Summer!
