I will be frank with you…
This time I go further out, opening a new page and decide to take typical french dessert recipe Strawberry Galette, the fact that I need to improve the passionate all about baking.

The reasons I’m choosing this recipe because it suit to my average baking skill also I fancy something berry taste since I have strawberry in hand. It took me to find the perfect, the delicious and the easy in her blog HERE and then I combined the recipe with hers HERE, since both are having the berries as the fruits filling, similarity on the pate brisee and the equal methods in their recipe so I decide to go for it.
It was predictable outcome which I call it as a jewel, each bite of this strawberry galette contain natural berry flavor and sting of the lemon, it just perfect!
