A galette is simply a rustic tart with a free-form dough wrapped up and around fresh fruit, and this preparation is especially family friendly, low hassle, and highly rewarding. Your first step: Go to the farmers’ market and be inspired by what is in season and ripe. You’ll need 6 cups of fruit, so buy what excites you: any combination of berries, apples, peaches, plums, and cherries (I like peaches and blueberries, or just a straight sour cherry tart). This is a relatively quick choice for breakfast, brunch, or dessert, especially if you have some piecrust dough in the freezer, and it can be served straight from the oven. The open-faced recipe calls for a single piecrust; our pie dough recipe makes two, so make the full amount and freeze half, well wrapped, for another use. —Brian Noyes, from his new cookbook, The Red Truck Bakery Farmhouse Cookbook.
