We love galettes, these rustic tarts made with homemade shortcrust pastry and fruit. Persimmons, you may not find them anymore, because it is no longer the season, but this cake can be made with many fruits, with all those that admit the heat well, apples, pears, cherries, strawberries, blueberries, apricots, nectarines, peaches, etc., so you can choose your favorite.
The technique would be the same, make the dough, cut the fruit into slices if it is large, if not half whole, and bake, as you can see, few ingredients and very easy to prepare.
Also, it is not difficult to make a long time and once it is made and tempered, placed in a cake holder it looks great for precisely when you have guests. You sure like it.
