The St Michel Sea Salt Galettes are one of the most traditional French cookies. These cookies are a perfect balance of sweet, buttery and crispy, with hint of sea salt from Guérande. Guérande sea salt is hand-harvested from salt marshes by the Atlantic Ocean and gives an additional je-ne-sais-quoi to this already delicious treat. Because these cookies are packaged by 3, you can have just a few and save the rest for later. They are delicious for an afternoon treat by themselves or with a warm cup of tea.
We selected these cookies from St Michel for their long-standing tradition as one of the oldest cookie makers in France. Joseph Grellier, a pastry chef, started making sea salt galettes in the early 1900s in his small village of St Michel-Chef-Chef in Brittany. They were popular in his township, but one summer morning in 1905, his wife had the idea to sell them by the seaside where Parisians came for vacation… This is when they became an overnight sensation! Since then, St Michel still produces these delicious sea salt galettes.

The cookies are delectably sweet; delicate and not overpowering. The sea salt pairs brilliantly with the sweetness; it gives the perfect contrast between salty and sweet.
These are great for a snack, with coffee or tea; you can’t go wrong with these!
Super addictive -- the sea salt adds just the right twinge of contrast to a subtly sweet biscuit.
