Brown sugar Galettes


This recipe is edited in gram to help your learn  how to use a kitchen scale. If you don’t have a kitchen scale you can bake the galettes using the volume measure. I invite  you to read this article to learn how to use a scale to prepare your meal. I use mine almost everyday since over 30 years.

This recipe is an adaptation of the galettes  my grandmother Anna Mongrain baked for us  when I was a child. She rolled out the dough and cut rounds but I decided to simplify the recipe by dropping spoonfuls of dough on the sheet to save time. The galettes are at their best for 2 days so I suggest to freeze the galettes you are not planning serving within this time frame.

Yield: about 20 galettes

3
