tarte au sucre

sugar pie

tarte au sucre

This typical galette from the North of France is made of super soft brioche dough covered with brown sugar and knobs of beurre noisette that caramelizes on the surface. Best when warm out of the oven, it is served as a dessert, snack or even for breakfast.

The galette ardennaise is very similar.
