When you want pie but don't have a pie pan, galette is the answer! This Cherry and Dark Chocolate Galette from Weeknight Gourmet Dinners is as delicious and easy as it is beautiful.


  • 12 oz frozen cherries (halved)
  • 2 tbs granulated sugar
  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • 1 tbs corn syrup
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 prepared pie crust (dough)
  • 3 tbs heavy cream or half-and-half
  • 3 tbs light brown sugar


  • Preheat oven to 400 F.
    In a large bowl, combine cherries, sugar and cornstarch. Stir the cherries until evenly coated. Add the corn syrup, almond extract and chocolate chips and mix until well combined.
  • Carefully roll out a pie crust on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Spoon the cherry mixture into the center of the pie crust. Spread out the cherry mixture, leaving a 2 inch bare margin around the edges of the crust. Bring the edges of the crust over the fruit, folding it over the cherry mixture.
  • Brush the crust with the cream and sprinkle brown sugar over it.
  • Bake for 25 - 30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Let the galette cool completely on a wire rack before serving.
