These cute little mini Gallettes had me at first sight. domesticfits.com has great pictures and post on how to make these (you should check her out too). I would’ve just eaten some of hers, I’m sure she’d share she looks like a nice lady but I don’t live anywhere near her so I made my own.
They were irresistible!
Cut butter into flour, sugar and salt.
Stop when it’s the size of small peas.
Add the water a tsp at a time.
when it gets about like this it’s time to stop adding teaspoons of water ‘cause you cant UN-add the water. I know this for a fact. I’ve made my share of miserable crust.
Work into a ball, wrap with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or freezer for 20 minutes if you’re in a hurry.
Roll out the dough and cut into circles. I got real fancy and used the lid from a parmesan cheese container.

fold up the edges leaving the middle open.
