Drunken Cherry Almond Galette
Easy Drunken Cherry Almond Galette recipe for summer

This week I’ve got a recipe for an easy Drunken Cherry Almond Galette. Do you know what I love about summer? Baking adorable and portable desserts for all the summer picnics, barbecues, and rooftop parties.

The thing with all of these summer soirees, is that they tend to pop up at the last minute and sometimes I don’t have time to bake a time-intensive treat. So thank goodness for Pillsbury‘s ready-made pie crust! With 4th of July right around the corner, I whipped up these Drunken Cherry Almond Galettes and they did not disappoint! I love baking with bourbon (and drinking it), so I’m always looking for opportunities to include it in a recipe. The cherry bourbon filling is quintessentially summer and the almonds on the crust seal the deal. Galettes are the perfect summer treat because they’re self-contained and have a lovely rustic look that begs to be Instagrammed.

Ingredients

  • 5 cups of Cherries, pitted and halved
  • 3 tablespoons of Bourbon
  • 1 teaspoon of Almond Extract
  • 1/4 cup of Granulated Sugar

  2. Mix the cherries, sugar, flour, lemon juice, almond extract, and bourbon in a large bowl.
  3. Roll out the each sheet of dough on parchment paper. Split the fresh cherry filling in half to fill the center of each circle of dough.
