For the Galette:

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 stick + 3 Tbsp unsalted butter frozen and grated
  • 3-5 Tbsp ice water
  • 1 medium egg room temperature, for egg wash
  • 1 Tbsp coarse sugar for sprinkling

For the Strawberry Filling:

  • 4 ½ cups fresh strawberries stems removed and halved
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • 5 Tbsp honey
  • 2 Tbsp corn starch
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

To serve:

  • 1-2 scoops Vanilla Ice Cream
  • Fresh thyme


For the Galette:

  • In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar and salt.
  • Remove butter from the freezer and grate, using a box grater. Using your hands, combine the butter with the flour mixture, breaking it into the flour until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Add 3 tablespoons cold water and mix with a spatula, drizzling in more water as needed (no more than 1 tablespoon at a time), until the dough just comes together (a few dry spots are ok).
  • Gently knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until no dry spots remain, about 1 minute. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate while the filling is being prepared.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

For the Strawberry Filling:

  • In a large bowl, combine the halved strawberries, light brown sugar, honey, corn starch and vanilla extract.


  • Remove dough from the fridge and on a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out into an 12-inch circle. Transfer the dough to the prepared baking sheet by wrapping it around the rolling pin and unrolling over the sheet.
  • Arrange the strawberry filling over the dough, leaving about 3 inches from the edges. Lift the edges up and fold up and over the berries.
  • Brush the crust with egg wash and sprinkle with sugar (optional).
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes, until golden brown.

To serve:

  • Remove from the oven and cool for 3-5 minutes. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and some fresh thyme sprigs.
