This post is all about having new experiences and trying out a new recipe. After a recent trip to Lyman Orchards I had a bunch of apples and a few pears. Picking pears was a new experience for my toddler and I, so we can now check that one off the list. I wanted to bake something new and I found a recipe for an Apple and Pear Galette. The recipe called for only two Granny Smith apples and two Bartlett pears so it was a good fit for the few pieces of fruit we actually did pick. Granny Smith apples were not available yet so I substituted Ginger Gold apples, which worked out well. You will notice in the below images that I’m using a yellow ruler masking tape when rolling out the pastry dough. The last time I was rolling out dough my toddler decided to take the ruler and turn it into a toy, so when I saw this tape at Target, I thought it could be a good solution. It worked, for now!
