Roasted Butternut Squash, Cheddar, and Sage Galette, a la Lemon
This gorgeous baked delicacy comes to you care of Ashley English's A Year of Pies: A Seasonal Tour of Home Baked Pies. I won a copy from Kate over at The Hip Girl's Guide to Homemaking earlier this year.
A Year of Pies is a pretty book, to be sure. One I'm happy to have in my little cookbook bookcase. The crust recipes are great, and pretty similar to what I find in my typical go-to cookbooks, the Joy of Cooking and the Better Homes & Garden Cook Book.
Some pie recipes in A Year of Pies left me underwhelmed. They were close to being tasty, but needed tweaking to really appeal to me. The galette recipe, however, was a winner.
I won't post the galette recipe here, since we really followed it to the letter, with one minor exception, since Mr. Lemon and I can't resist the temptation to tinker: he added a generous handful of baby spinach, roughly chopped. The spinach brings a nice punch of color and really doesn't affect the flavor of the galette at all. Plus, you know, vitamins, blah blah blah.
