Preparation
STEP 1

Preheat grill to medium heat or oven to 375˚F. Have cast iron skillet, pizza stone or sheet pan preheating with oven.

STEP 2

Unroll prepared pie crust onto sheet of parchment paper.

STEP 3

In a food processor make frangipane by combining butter, sugar, ground almonds, eggs, and almond extract. Process until smooth.

STEP 4

In a bowl toss berries with sugar, cornstarch and lemon zest.

STEP 5

To build galette spread frangipane over crust leaving a 1 ½ inch border around the edge. Top frangipane with berry mixture.

STEP 6

Fold edges of pie dough up and around the filling to make a rustic looking crust. Brush edges with milk and sprinkle with course sugar. Sprinkle whole galette with sliced almonds.

STEP 7

Transfer galette with parchment paper onto preheated pan. Bake or cook indirectly (opposite side of heat source) on grill for about 45 minutes or until crust is deep golden brown.

Options

Serve alone or with a dollop of whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, or yogurt. If cooking on an open campfire be sure to cook indirectly, slightly away from the flames, and covered with aluminum foil.
