jammer galette

Sometimes there just isn’t any good fruit around to make a pie.  Where I live right now, I can get some really old apples or some really green rhubarb at the farmers’ market.  We’re in the in-between season.  That’s when jam tarts come in handy, like the Jammer Galette.  This is a full-size version of Dorie’s Jammer cookies–a short and sandy sablé crust, topped with jam and covered in a sweet streusel.  I’m often taking a large version of something and scaling it down to a smaller size, but the little Jammer really does scale up well.

We’ve used Dorie’s sweet tart and galette doughs in the past, and I have a piece of each in the freezer.  I was tempted to cheat and swap one of them here, but I stayed true and made the sablé.  I had some homemade rhubarb jam from last summer in the fridge and I used it up here to make room for this year’s coming preserves stash.  This galette is pretty easy to make…the crust and and streusel can be taken care of in advance, and of course you can buy a nice jam for this.  It’s slim and bakes up crisp and delicate, and, naturally, it’s fabulous with vanilla ice cream.

  1. This looks amazing! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  2. The sablé crust was the best, wasn’t it? I was happy with how sturdy it was after it was baked, being layered with all of that jam and streusel.

  3. Your galette looks great. It was easy to make and everybody loved it. We used raspberry jam it is not too sweet same withe the rhubarb not too sweet.

  4. Yours looks wonderful – I love the higher jam to streusel ratio!

  5. Your galette looks really delicious and I love how some of the jam peeks through, yum!

  6. Beautiful looking galette! I am looking forward to making it. We did enjoy the Cocoa Crunch Meringues…so good!

  7. Rhubarb jam sounds good. This was easy and delicious.

  8. I had the same impulse you did, to use some of the tart or galette dough I’ve got in the freezer. I’m so glad I decided to make the cookie base. I used the last jar of piña colada jam I’d made last year for mine, but I think I would have liked this even better with rhubarb jam. Your jam to streusel ratio is better than mine. It makes your tart look elegant.

  9. omg where has this been all my life

  10. Beautiful! I am sure it was even more delicious with your home made jam. Yum!

  11. Yum – rhubarb jam in this galette would have ben terrific. I hate in -between season for fruit – that will come later this year for us.

  12. It’s like one big jammer cookie – how spectacular!

  13. Homemade rhubarb jam — how do you stop yourself from eating that right out of the jar? It must have made this tart extra amazing; it certainly looks fabulous!
