Ingredients for the filling:
1/2 cup ground almonds, lightly toasted
1 T flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 pounds strawberries , hulled and halved if large

Preparing the pastry:
Mix the flour, sugar, and salt. Add the butter and work with the fingers to a mealy texture. Mix with the fingers to crumbs. Mix the water in quickly until the dough just holds together. Pat into a disk, wrap, and refrigerate half an hour.

Preparing the filling:
Heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Mix the almonds, flour, and sugar. Roll out the chilled dough into a circle and set on a baking sheet. Spread the almond mixture over, leaving a 3-inch margin around the edge. Toss the strawberries with the sugar and arrange on top. Fold the edges of the galette dough up over the berries and bake until the crust is crisp and golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Serve warm with whipped cream, flavored with vanilla or cinnamon.
