On the Twelfth Day of Christmas .. Galette

Monday, January 06, 2014

To celebrate the end of the end of the festive season, we made galette des rois.  While the galette baked, we broke down the Christmas tree and boxed up decorations.  We celebrated a few days early this year to avoid a clash with first day back to work blues.  Great food and company made a fantastic end to our Christmas celebrations.

Unlike last year, we had a tiny ceramic charm to bake into the pie.  If you look carefully, you can see her standing on a dollar coin for scale. 

 Ready to bake.

 Fresh from the oven.

Fast disappearing.

The recipe was from Nigella Lawson's "How to be a Domestic Goddess" with the filling quantities halved.  We even managed to track down some orange blossom flower water.  It added the most divine hint of citrus to the filling. Definitely worth the hunt.
