Yup. Alton Brown again. He MAY be one of our favorite Food Network personalities. Oh who am I kidding, he is Mr. Food Network.
At any rate, in Season 2 of Good Eats, he makes a galette, which is a free-form pie. We decided it looked and sounded WAY too good to not make. So.... We made it. But with Apples and mixed berries rather than pears and blueberries. It was truly GOOD EATS. And, as promised, had a tender AND flaky crust. Easily the best pie crust I've ever made, if not exactly low fat...
This was also super easy to make. I highly recommend you try it, and here's the recipe if you want to make one up for yourself!
