  • 1 galette dough (find the recipe here)
  • 500-600 gr sour cherries
  • 3 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp corn flour
  • juice of ¼ a lemon


  • Start by preparing the galette dough. Find the recipe here.
  • During the resting time of the dough we prepare the filling. Wash the cherries very well and remove the pits.
  • In a large bowl add the cherries, 2 tbsp. sugar and 1 tbsp cornflour. Stir and set aside.
  • Dust a greaseproof paper with some flour and place the dough on. If it is hard to roll then leave it for 5 to 10 minutes to soften.
  • By using a rolling pin roll the dough to a diameter of about 30 cm. Dust the center with 1 tbs cornflour. Cornflour will absorb any extra moisture coming from cherries.
  • Arrange the cherries in the center leaving a 4 cm border.
  • Fold the border over cherries, overlapping as you go. Sprinkle the border with 1 tbsp. sugar.
  • Bake at a preheated oven, at 200°C, for 40-45 minutes or until the crust is golden.
