Rustic Meyer Lemon Curd Galette Recipe

In case you’re curious, a galette is a French-style pastry that’s like a laid-back, free-form pie. It’s made by rolling out dough, plopping a tasty filling in the center, and then folding the edges over. This gives it a rustic, unfussy look. Galettes can be sweet or savory and are baked until golden, creating a deliciously simple treat.

In this case, our filling is an easy homemade Meyer lemon curd. The result is a delicious and visually appealing dish that captures the essence of homemade comfort with a touch of elegance.
