Lay a circle of dough in the bottom of the ring. Don't worry if it doesn't go right to the edge, as it will swell during baking.

Galette de Fougerolles : Photo of step #11

Once the brioche has risen well, preheat the oven to 360°F (180°C).

Lay the craquelin on top of the galette.

Stage 13 - 7 min.

Push the cherries into the top of the galette through the craquelin, distributing them evenly.

Tip: Push your finger through the craquelin into the dough with a sharp, precise prod, then stick the cherry into the hole you have made.

Stage 14 - 40 min.

Bake for about 40 minutes.

Stage 15

Leave to cool on a wire rack.
Remarks
For an interesting variation: replace half the flour in the craquelin with ground hazelnuts. This gives a more definite hazelnut flavour and a subtler crust.

If you don't have hazelnut cream, just use almond cream or frangipane instead.
Keeping
1 or 2 days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.
