Tuesdays with Dorie (Baking Chez Moi): Jammer Galette

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is basically a giant version of Dorie’s famous “Jammer” cookie (which I have had the pleasure to enjoy) so I mean what could go wrong?

Dorie Greenspan jammer galette on eatlivetravelwrite.comInterestingly, this would have been the perfect recipe to “minify” as I am wont to do but for some reason, I had my heart set on making a full-sized version of this. Next time, though, I’ll be making the smaller cookie-sized version (though I know it’s a little fiddly from reading other people’s posts).

Dorie Greenspan Baking Chez Moi jammer galette sliced on eatlivetravelwrite.comYou start out by making a shortbread-y cookie dough for your base then freezing it after you’ve rolled it out (the dough is very sticky). Then you’ll spoon some jam (I used fig) over the top, sprinkle the jam with a streusel mixture and bake it up…

Jammer galette for Tuesdays with Dorie on eatlivetravelwrite.comIt’s buttery, soft, crunchy and crumbly all at the same time. Melt-in-your-mouth stuff.

Slice of jammer galette on eatlivetravelwrite.comI loved the large-sized version of one of my favourite cookies – it’s great to slice and serve (and it lasts a few days at room temperature too) so would be wonderful for company. I do, however, have my eye on cookie-sized jammers in the very near future though… A(nother) definite winner from Baking Chez Moi…

    Looks great. This was easy to make and I love that I could make the crust and the streusel in the same bowl. Not so much washing up.

    What a great idea to use fig jam! I will have to try this instead of the strawberry Jame next time.

    The fig jam sounds like a delicious filling. I have plans to make the cookies as well since the galette was such a big hit.

    This was a hit in my house too. I served it for a dinner party and not a crumb left.

    Fig jam was a great choice for this tart. I used some homemade jam that was due to be used up. This will be my go to for using up jam in future – it’s a perfect showcase for any flavour.

    I am regretting that I haven’t made this wonderful looking dessert yet. I will have to find a reason to make it soon! Fig jam sounds like a delicious choice.
