Ingredients

Dough
Filling

Directions

Dough
  • In a food processor,
    combine flour, butter, sugar
    and salt. Pulse until butter
    resembles coarse crumbs (a few larger pieces are okay).
    With machine running,
    stream in 2 tbsp ice water,
    about 20 seconds. Check to see
    if dough has come together. If
    it seems dry, add ice water
    1 tbsp at a time with machine
    running, being careful not to
    make dough too wet. Do not
    overmix. Transfer dough onto
    a work surface, form into a
    disk, wrap in plastic and
    refrigerate for 1 hour.

Filling
  • Heat oven to 375°.
    In a bowl, combine cherries,
    sugar, cornstarch, lemon
    juice, almond extract and salt.
    Set aside.

  • On a lightly floured surface,
    roll out chilled dough to a
    13-inch circle. Transfer dough
    to a baking sheet lined with
    parchment paper. Pour filling
    into middle of dough, leaving a
    2-inch border around edges.
    Fold edges over filling (galette
    should be 9 inches wide when
    complete). Brush border with cream and sprinkle with
    sugar. Bake at 375° for 50 to 55
    minutes, until crust is golden
    brown. Cool on a wire rack
    before slicing.
