Cherry Pistachio Galette

Serves: 6 Prep Time: 45 Minutes Cooking Time: 35 - 40 Minutes





Add pistachios to a food processor and process until about half the nuts are powdered. Sift powder into a bowl. Set aside remaining nut pieces. Add pitted cherries, sugar and lemon juice to the bowl of pistachio powder; toss well and set aside for at least 30 minutes. Place pie dough onto parchment lined baking sheet, unfold and press together any cracks or breaks; place in refrigerator for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 400°F. Remove dough from refrigerator, place cherry filling in the center of dough, sprinkle with diced butter and remaining nuts. Use the parchment as a guide to fold the dough up and pinch around cherries to form an open top shell. Gently lay the parchment back down once the shell has been formed. Pinch together any breaks in the shell to hold juices in. In a small bowl, combine 1 egg with 1 Tablespoon of cold water to create an egg wash. Brush shell with egg wash and sprinkle with turbinado sugar. Place in oven and bake for about 35 to 40 minutes or until crust is golden brown and juices are bubbling. Remove from oven and rest for at least 10 minutes before slicing.
