Why mojito? Well, this wasn’t intended to taste like a mojito but when I took a bite I was like.. Wait? WHAT? It’s like eating a strawberry mojito! No alcohol though but still all the other ingredients are there.
It is such a pretty galette, you’ll eat it in a pinch. Strawberries get all jammy inside and make it a moist and light dessert. For the homemade dough, please see the recipe here. I just loved it so much.
