Rustic Raspberry Ricotta Galette Recipe

A Deliciously Simple Dessert


The first thing you may be asking is, “What the heck is a galette?” A galette is similar to a tart. Like a tart, a galette can be sweet or savory, but where a tart is usually made in a tart pan, a galette is free-form. You can learn more about Tarts vs. Galettes here.

I wanted to make a simple dessert for Valentine’s Day that Luke and I could share. Since I love raspberries, and they are red, this Raspberry Ricotta Galette sounded perfect. The complete idea popped into my head as I roamed the aisles of my neighborhood Trader Joe’s store. I began tossing items into my cart.

This would make a tasty addition to any meal, and its beauty lends itself nicely as a romantic dessert.

Let’s get baking…

Rustic Raspberry Ricotta Galette Ingredients


Pie Crust, Ricotta Cheese, Raspberry Jam, Honey, Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips, Heavy Cream, Fresh Raspberries,


The rustic galette is very easy to put together. First, preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper and layout your pie crust.


Ricotta and Honey

Stir together the Ricotta cheese and honey

Spread Ricotta and honey mixture on the pie crust leaving a wide edge for folding. Top Ricotta with raspberry jam. Fold edge over the top, leaving the center open, and pinch together as needed.


Sugar and Chocolate Dusted Crust Edges

Give the top crust edge a cream wash and dust with sugar and chocolate if desired.

Bake the galette at 375 degrees for 45 minutes. After baking, allow galette to rest on the baking sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack for cooling.

We made this galette for Valentine's Day, so we piped a whipped cream heart in the center of the galette and topped with a fresh raspberry.
