Making a heart-shaped raspberry galette is a sure-shot way to impress your other half this valentines day!
Galettes are extremely easy to make and a super delicious. Think of it as the lazy mans pie.
A galette takes little effort to put together. Using store bought pie crust, takes a lot of the effort out of prep.
I’m also using a little orange zest and a squeeze of orange to give this raspberry galette a little extra love.
I love making galettes (see bourbon blueberry galette, or grilled apple galette) for an easy dessert, then doubling it as a leftover breakfast.
Then double leftovers for lunch.. and dinner.. ok – just double batch it and make it a meal prep for the week!
To form this as a heart you’ll want to assort the raspberries in a loose heart shape, then fold over the pie crust.
Use your hands to help the shape along. It’s a lot easier that it seems just make sure that you pinch in the folds so that it holds it shape as it bakes.
