Blueberry Strawberry Galette Recipe

From the kitchen of Angie St. John

Busy time of the year right? School is winding down or is over, Father’s Day is coming up, endless birthdays..annndddd…IT’S STRAWBERRY SEASON!!! It’s one of our favorite times of the year and we love how blueberry season rolls right on in to take place of the strawberries. My son and I went to pick strawberries during the heat wave and we just had a blast. Every year we go to the same place and eat probably a quart before we even get home. This year he wanted to share some with his kindergarten class and I knew I wanted to make a galette. What is a galette, you may ask? A galette is a French term used for a free formed, round pastry with a savory filling. Here is my go-to-recipe. It’s very easy and I had to add blueberries to it, since we still have some frozen ones to use up! Now, if I can only pick a flat of strawberries to actually freeze so we can enjoy them for the winter months to come….

You will need:

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for rolling out dough
2 teaspoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cold and cubed
4 tablespoons ice water
3 cups strawberries, stems cut off and sliced once. 

Fruit Filling
1/2 cup blueberries 
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon raw honey (you can also use maple syrup) 
1 large egg beaten (you can also add milk or water to it) 
1 teaspoon cinnamon 

Baking Instructions:

First, make the galette
1. In the bowl of a food processor, combine the flour, sugar and salt. Add the cubed butter and pulse until combined. While pulsing, slowly stream in the ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the dough begins to form a ball.

2. Shape the dough into a disc and wrap it in plastic wrap or a tea towel. Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes while you prepare the filling. 

3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the strawberries, sugar, cornstarch and raw honey, stirring until combined. Set the filling aside.

4. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

5. Lightly flour your work surface then using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a 12-inch circle then transfer it onto the baking sheet. 

6. Using a spoon, transfer the strawberry & blueberry filling into the center of the dough, leaving a 2-inch border around the edges. 

7. Using your fingers, fold the edges of the dough up and barely over the filling.
 Brush the edges of the galette with the beaten egg (don’t forget to add your cinnamon to the egg wash), wash then bake it for 26 to 30 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.

8. This galette is sweet enough to serve alone, but we like to add fresh cream or ice cream too! Chocolate ice cream was today's choice!
