Rustic, free-form tarts, known as “galettes” in France, can go both savory and sweet. We’re going a bit of both with this recipe, tossing Delicata squash with apple slices, a touch of garlic, fresh thyme, olive oil, and a hint of balsamic vinegar. This comforting, rustic tart is perfect for brunch or a Sunday supper with a salad on the side. A tip? Make extra dough and keep it in the freezer as a convenient way to have galettes more often, especially for weekend entertaining. Uses KitchenAid® Stand Mixer and Sifter + Scale Attachment.

    1. Special Equipment: KitchenAid® Stand Mixer; KitchenAid® Sifter + Scale Attachment; Large rimmed baking sheet; 2 sheets parchment paper; rolling pin; large, wide spatula
    2. Attach the KitchenAid® Sifter + Scale Attachment to your KitchenAid® mixer fitted with the flat beater. Place the scale lid on top. Weigh the butter (1/2 cup + 7 Tbs = 7 oz total), cut it into small cubes, place it into a small bowl and refrigerate it while you weigh and prepare the other ingredients.
    3. With the ingredient valve in the closed position, weigh the flour (7.4 oz), cornmeal (1 oz), salt (0.08 oz), and sugar (0.08 oz) in the ingredient hopper, taring the scale between ingredients. Turn the mixer to low speed, open the ingredient valve, and sift the flour mixture into the mixing bowl. Stop the mixer and scatter the ice-cold butter over top. Mix on medium-low speed until the butter is the size of peas, about 3 minutes. Pour the water in a slow steady stream. Stop the mixer once to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Mix 20 seconds longer to incorporate any scraggly bits.
