Cherry Blueberry Galette




Galettes – when there’s laundry to do and not a whole lot of time to make a pie. Make a single crust, pit the cherries with a chopstick over an empty water bottle, fill, fold, and bake! 

For the crust:

  • 1 1/3 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1/4 cup ice water

For the filling:

  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 3 cups cherries, pitted
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon milk

1. In the bowl of a food processor combine flour, salt, and butter. Pulse until mixture resembles course crumbs. Add ice water, a tablespoon at a time, until dough begins to clump. Form into a disk by hand, wrap in plastic and refrigerate dough for at least an hour.

2. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to a 13″ round. Transfer dough to a parchment lined baking sheet.

3. In a large bowl, toss blueberries and cherries with sugar and cornstarch. 4. Scoop the fruit onto the dough, leaving a 2 inch border all around. Fold the dough over the fruit and pleat the edges as you work your way around, you’ll wind up with a tart that’s approximately 9″ in diameter. Place the tart in the freezer for a half hour – this will help it keep it’s shape.

4. Preheat oven to 425º, remove galette from freezer. Make an egg wash by beating the egg with a teaspoon of milk, brush on the pastry, and sprinkle with the coarse sugar. Bake at 425º for 15 minutes, turn oven down to 375º, and bake for an additional 35 to 40 minutes until crust is golden brown. Let cool on a wire rack.
