There’s no need to make a fussy pie in the summer when you can make an easy, quick and delicious Rhubarb Rose Galette instead!
Ok, guys — It’s almost the weekend. Praise be. Comment below if know what show that’s from. My sister-in-law is getting married this weekend, so I’m feeling all lovey-dovey. I wanted to play around with rose water and rhubarb and a galette just seemed like a great choice. Hence, this Rhubarb Rose Galette was born!
The morning after the wedding I’ll be flying to Wichita for a Kansas Beef Council Press trip, so let’s all hope the wedding hangover isn’t too bad. I’ve never been to Kansas so I have no idea what to expect! If you have any recommendations for coffee or anything like that, please let me know.
If you’ve never made a galette, you’re missing out on one of the easiest desserts out there. I mean, it’s basically a pie, but you just pour everything in the middle of the dough and fold the edges up. It’s incredible! I think that this one is best served warm from the oven with a hefty scoop of strawberry ice cream on top. Yummm.
