gimme gimme that sweet galette

well... here's another sweet treat... a yummy strawberry galette... such a delight
think of warm flaky buttery crust enveloping sweet and somewhat tart juicy strawberries... it was such a nice way to warm up when the weather has been a bit of a burrrrr!!
i used jula childs galette dough recipe that i used in 2 posts ago... but i added a bit more sugar to the dough this time... its perfect the original way, but i wanted to try it a bit sweeter this time since it was for something sweet not savory... so i upped the sugar to 2 tablespoons... and it created a subtle sweetness under all that yummy butter flavor...
now as for the strawberry filling...
i was originally going to coat them in a little lemon juice and honey... but then i was like hmm... lets try something different... now anyone who knows my dad knows how amazing his preserves and jams are... i dubbed him "patsy preserves"... he's such a martha when it comes to his jams... anyways, last time he visited he gave me a jar of his delicious 4-berry jam... a sweet combo of blackberry, raspberry, strawberry and blueberry and a jar of his strawberry peach preserves... holy crap are they awesome...
so i decided to take about 1/4 cup of the 4 berry jam, warm it up and then proceeded to coated the strawberries with it... oh man... and once inside the dough i drizzled the top of the strawberries with just a touch of honey and lightly sprinkled some homemade raw vanilla sugar on the outside of the crust... all in all a wonderful dish!

happy baking everyone!
