Cherries and dark chocolate form an irrestible combination, especially when grilled in a crispy, sweet galette. Though it’s surprisingly easy, this decadent dessert will make you look like a grilling goddess.
1 to 2 cups ripe pitted cherries
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 pre-made pie crust
1 teaspoon butter
1 sea salt dark chocolate bar, cut into pieces
1 egg, beaten
Zest of 1 lemon
1. Prepare grill for indirect heat (one burner off, one burner on) and heat to 350 to 400 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with foil and spray foil with cooking spray.
2. In a bowl, combine cherries with sugar and lemon juice. Mix and let sit for 5 to 10 minutes so sugar and lemon juice macerate cherries and bring out their juice.
3. Lay pie crust on a baking sheet and put cherry mixture on top, being careful to fold edges of pie crust over to form a free-form crust. Make sure cherry mixture cannot escape. Crumble butter and layer all over. Sprinkle chocolate pieces evenly over top. Brush pie crust with egg wash to help brown the edges.
4. Bake galette on indirect heat with grill top closed for 30 minutes or until edges of crust are golden brown and cherries are bubbly. Finish galette with lemon zest.
