Sensational Galettes~

I know I know I sound like a stalker..and I am..I can't tell you how many recipes I make from Marie and they all turn out divinely our cup of tea..
These literally melt in your mouth..

Like a Ritz Carlton Nutri Grain Bar..?:) No galette..You get what I mean?

They just look like a cup of tea.. or coffee..and a pause~café...

Packed in a picnic by the sea..they would be scrumptious..I've missed the sea the last few summers..This one was no exception..Is there anything like it?

I would have picked up an Anthony Bourdain grey hoodie written Provincetown..would have visited the beaches..the Christmas Tree Shops.. driven route 6A..mouth wide open..It's such a pretty pretty state the state of Mass..I love the Cape..Walking the beaches..visiting the towns..Martha's Vineyard,Nantucket,Chatham,Craigville,Osterville..Ptown..etc..
So ....I watched the Summer of '42 instead .

La Recette~
Her words exactly~
*Rasberry Buns*
Makes 12
Printable Recipe

A deliciously buttery teatime treat, just stogged full of raspberry jam!

225g of self raising flour (a scant 2 cups)
1 tsp baking powder
75g of butter (a scant 1/3 cup)
75g of caster sugar (a scant 1/2 cup)
1 large free range egg, lightly beaten
a little milk
raspberry jam

To glaze:
a little extra milk
a little extra sugar

Preheat the oven to 180*C/350*F/ gas mark 4. Butter a large baking tray. Set aside.

Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl. Drop in the butter and then rub it into the flour mixture with your fingertips, rubbing until the mixture resembles dry bread crumbs. Stir in the sugar. Beat the egg and stir it into the flour mixture with a fork, along with just enough milk to make a soft dough. Divide the dough into 12 equal pieces and roll each into a ball. Flatten the ball and place a dab of jam in the middle of each. Bring the edges of the dough up around the jam to cover it completely enclosing it. Flatten slightly and place 2 inches apart on the baking sheet. Brush each with a bit of milk and sprinkle with more sugar.

Bake in the heated oven for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown. Scoop off onto a wire rack to cool. Cool completely before tucking in as hot jam can really give you a nasty burn!

Plse don't use the Printable recipe button..I don't know how to add that to my day I will..

So..again..these are excellent..Thanks Marie~
You can use Raspberry Jam.. Cassis Gelée..Marmalade..Dulche De Leche..I may try w/ my Pâte de Spéculoos..

I think I will be making these for the rest of my life they are so perfect♥

  3. Hi Monique,
    They look so good, so a Ritz-Carlton Nutri-Grain bar huh? I like it!

    So... is that beautiful bottle just your every day milk bottle? Le bon lait cause I love it. They don't make pretty things like that here if it is.

    Just so you know... I wish that for you too (lots).

  4. They do sound wonderful! You are such a polite stalker and these Raspberry Buns sound delicious :) The beach scenes remind me of Hilton Head too. So many pretty beaches on the east coast!

  5. Oh boy...these are right up my alley!
    Everyone will be home next weekend for the first time in a long time...i think i will make these. We love anything with raspberry jam..
    They look fabulous!
    Thanks so much MONIQUE!

    I also love the Cape...we went to Main this year. Beautiful but the water was just too cold...lots of people from your neck of the woods there...
    Your pictures are always!

  16. This looks like the perfect cookie to me. I will take the recipe tp try. Thanks for sharing.

  17. Funny to see you talking about Massachusetts from waaaay over there in Canda. That's my home state! There are some beautiful places there but now my heart belongs n Maine. Hope you can visit here some time - please bring some of these galettes. Merci!

  18. That looks like our beach here in Southampton. I would miss it too. When my sis comes from TX it is the first thing she must do!
    The galettes look delicious.
    And I have never peeled an acorn squash either! :)

  19. J'adore votre blog. Wow! Caro B. xxx

  20. Gorgeous looking and mouth-watering treats as usual, Monique. Am going to attempt your Smore cookies this afternoon too!
    Thank you for your inspiration and kind comments too.
    Enjoy your week!

  21. I love the Cape and Nantucket. Just knew when I saw the photos that's where they were taken!
    The raspberry buns look like the perfect accompaniment to tea! I've never visited Marie...will be going over after this comment. Love the choices of fillings. Much as a adore dulce de leche, the raspberry seems a perfect pairing. Can't wait to try these!

  22. wondeful recipe...mekas you feel like a cup of tea even if it isn't teatime or a pause café and you haven't done anything yet!
    and beautiful photots of the beach...I immediately want to sing..."under the boardwalk, down by the sea..ea..ea.."

  23. Ah! they look so delish! I'm sure my grandies will love them. I've just watched Anthony Bourdain in Provence ~ he does it so well~ and the photography is sublime
    Thanks for sharing these little treats with us

  24. Almost missed this one...this does sound so splendid,a cup of tea or a cup of acidic coffee- I can imagine perfection!

  25. You outdo yourself again! Thank you.
    P.S. You and I are in agreement regarding Massachusetts...I lived there for several years as a child and my fondest memories spring from those times.

  26. Oh, summers on the beaches of Cape Cod and Nantucket. It doesn't get any better. ~ Sarah

  27. Next time you come down this way, please stop by...I'll make these galettes for you, too!
