The Best Summer Tomatoes

The end of summer tomatoes are the best. Perfectly plump, ripe and beautiful. You can use large red beefsteaks, small vine reds or the most colorful heirlooms you can find. Grab them from the garden, the farmer’s market, or the grocery store.

Whipped Honey and Feta Cheese

Tomato Galette with Honey Whipped Feta Cheese

Whipped feta cheese is similar to ricotta cheese. It is smooth in texture but not at firm as ricotta. Feta has a tangy salty flavor and with a heavy drizzle of sweet honey, this honey whipped feta cheese is an easy way to add a major flavor bomb to this tomato galette.

Puff Pastry Crust

Most galettes use a homemade dough. Let’s skip this step and use store-bought puff pastry. It’s buttery and delicious. You can find it in the frozen food section of the grocery store. You will need it to be fully defrosted for this recipe, but keep it chilled in the refrigerator until you need to roll it out.

If you are up for a baking adventure, you can make homemade puff pastry. It’s so amazing when it’s made homemade but it does take time.

Puff pastry will hold up to the whipped feta cheese and the juicy tomatoes, no fork required, unless you want to use one. The trick is to use a sprinkle of corn meal on the crust. This helps keep the puff pastry sturdy and gives it a great texture. You do not need much, just a light sprinkle on the counter in lieu of flour when you roll out the puff pastry.
