Let’s Review the May Baking Challenge

May 2020 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: Mini Fruit Galettes

Flexibility with both ingredients and preparation has been ideal this spring season. That’s why I chose mini fruit galettes for the challenge. Endlessly customizable and easy to halve, this recipe was a huge success. With new readers joining us each month, many hadn’t worked with homemade pie crust before. What a treat to dive into the pastry world and come out with individual mini pies in YOUR own flavor choice! We saw you make these every day of the month and your fillings were wonderfully enticing. Apple cinnamon, fresh berries with nuts, blackberries with basil, peach with white chocolate and topped with ice cream, whipped cream, melted chocolate, or caramel– you certainly didn’t skimp on creativity this month!

One of my favorite recipe reviews came from reader Hannah:

“I was nervous when I saw this challenge, but as usual, Sally made every step clear and simple to follow. The galettes turned out wonderful and I can’t wait to make them again with new fruit combinations! Thank you, Sally for making baking at home fun, challenging and attainable!”

We gathered as many mini fruit galette photo entries as we could and included them below.

Reader Questions and Reviews

  1. Wow, so many galettes!! They all look great, and congrats to the winner 🙂 Those brownie ice cream sandwiches look AMAZING-my mouth is watering at the thought of pairing them with mint ice cream-or maybe salted caramel, or cookies and cream!

  2. Greta job on the Mini Fruit Galettes everyone. I am very excited for the June challenge. Brownies and ice cream… YES PLEASE! What a great combination of two wonder treats. Can’t wait to bake!

  3. Though I missed out on making the mini fruit galettes; those brownie ice cream bars look amazing. I’m thinking of raspberry ice cream with them!

  4. An off topic comment – I made your crab cake recipe the other night and both my husband and I couldn’t stop commenting on the deliciousness of them. We are crab cake snobs and these definitely are the best home made ones we’ve had. They rival any Maryland crab house crab cakes we’ve had and we’ve had alot! Can’t wait to make them again. Only adjustment I made was Ritz crackers instead of saltines because I didn’t have saltines in the house. Thank you!

  5. Hi Sally ! I really wanted to join the May challenge but so sad I couldn’t make it ,but this time I’m confident to join and give my best to be a part of this month’s challenge. I’m so excited for the recipe
