Apple Rhubarb Galette

Hey everyone!

Hope your week is going well.Today I was able to have some time to myself in the kitchen. Thanks goes to my parents for taking Casey for a few hours! Woo! While my parents were here, my mom and I were discussing different things I should try to practice. One thing that was brought up was pastry, because it is improving, but it still could be better. I looked at what I had on the counter for fruit, leftover rhubarb and apples. I figured they go pretty well together, and I’ve never made a galette. I’ve seen them on baking shows etc., and wanted to try it out. They’re SO EASY! I’m questioning why I never made one before.

So now I want to share with you what I created today. I hope you enjoy!

Note: You don’t necessarily have to use homemade crust, if you want to use store bought to save some time – go for it!
