Berry Galette - TWD: Baking with Julia

Tuesdays with Dorie: Baking with Julia - Fourteenth Installment.  The recipe is Berry Galette.


This was so easy and so delicious!  I had local fresh blueberries, so just used those, rather than mixed berries.  The crust got rave reviews from my family, and it was a relief to have a positive crust experience after what happened last time.   I have made galettes before (lazy person's pie crust), but never with this combination of ingredients - sour cream and cornmeal.  The crust got rave reviews.

Before baking
I made the whole crust recipe, and took the suggestion in the book to make the cheese and tomato (another local seasonal food) galette for a starter.  Both were devoured in short order.   I wondered if the sugar in the crust would taste odd with the savory filling, but it was quite tasty.

  2. Glad you enjoyed it. I was actually thinking the savory one might be better than the berry one. I might have to give it a try one day.

  3. Yum! The pleats on yours look so perfect! I'm wishing I would have done the cheese and tomato one too. Good thing it was so easy so I can make it again :)

  6. This recipe is definitely a keeper. I'll remake it with other fillings. Your blueberry galette is more than blue...tiful and yummy!
