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.
