When food author Michele Anna Jordan’s students tell her they can’t make dough, she often uses this recipe to teach them how.  “It’s mostly lack of confidence that gets in the way of a good dough. As long as you use chilled butter, cold water and don’t overwork the mixture, you should have excellent results every time.” says Michele.

Use this recipe for Michele’s Tomato Galette with Bacon.

Variation: For sweet galettes, use 1/4 teaspoon salt and add 1 teaspoon sugar at the same time.
