One of my favorite desserts to make are galettes! These Mini Cherry Almond Galettes are perfect if want to serve individual desserts!
This post and recipe was created for #SummerDessertWeek! I was sent samples by some of the sponsor companies but as always opinions are 100% mine.
Let’s not even being to talk about the fact that this is another cherry dessert. Let’s focus on the galette part! You know I have an obsession with those too. I recently shared with you Apple Blueberry Galette and made you a video for Whole Wheat Strawberry Galette!
It was natural for me to go with cherries, because you, the 10 pounds I had sitting around my house. Yep this was definitely putting them to good use!
One thing that was a game changer for me was the fact that I received a cherry pitter from OXO. If you do not have one, you MUST get it! It’s a lifesaver for sure!
The kids and I had an assembly line going getting all of those cherries pitted. It was SO fun! My 5 year old pulled off the stems and my 8 year old help wash them and pit them as well. I enjoy those moments in the kitchen with them and I hope you ENJOY this!
