Tartine’s Fruit Galettes with thanks to Elisabeth Prueitt and Chad Robertson of Tartine Bakery, San Francisco

If ever there was a moment for making these free-form rustic pastries, it’s right now.  The markets are bursting at the seams with the most beautiful stone fruits and berries of every description.  The peaches, nectarines and cherries are irresistible and this recipe is a perfect way to use them paired with blueberries. Last weekend we had very special guests, our friend Julie and her 10-year old daughter and budding pastry chef, Lucy.

Twice Baked Cherry Pie

        To be honest with you, Andrew is a superb baker with one tiny exception.  His cookies are crazy good.  His cupcakes, nirvana.  His cakes are sensational and he sends everyone into the stratosphere with most everything else he bakes.  But…he’s never been really comfortable making pie crust.  That is until this superb method appeared in Melissa Clark’s “A Good Appetite” column in the New York Times.  Now we love Melissa because she inspires us in everything she does.  She also tells it like it is:  Fruit pies, she says, suffer from dough that sometimes doesn’t even appear to have been baked and can be soggy, unappetizing affairs.
