Blueberry Almond Streusel Galette

Blueberry Almond Streusel Galette Recipe on twopeasandtheirpod.com  A simple dessert for summer!

The 4th of July is on Thursday. I really don’t like it when holidays fall during the week. Can’t they all be on Friday or Monday so we can enjoy extra long weekends? Since I can’t change the calendar, I guess I will just take the entire week off and celebrate. You can find me in the pool or eating a big piece of Blueberry Almond Streusel Galette.

Galettes are one of my favorite summer desserts. I don’t do pies, but I do galettes and I do them well. Ok, Josh always makes the dough, but I make the filling and do my fair share of the eating. WE do galettes well. And this Blueberry Almond Streusel Galette is off the charts. I give it a perfect 10!

Josh made the galette dough while I worked on the galette filling. The galette dough isn’t hard, I just always have my “dough boy” make it for me. Since he doesn’t mind and he’s good at it, why not? I love this galette dough because it has cornmeal in it. It gives the galette a slight crunch. It’s our favorite galette dough recipe. We use it all of the time. A few of our other favorite galettes include: Apple Toffee Galette, Pear Galette, and Mixed Berry Mini Galettes.

I had a huge container of blueberries in the fridge so I made a blueberry filling. Caleb gave me the evil eye when he saw me working with his precious blueberry jewels, but I gave him a few to snack on while I worked and he forgave me. He loves blueberries!

I was going to stop at just the blueberries, but then my mind started dreaming up an almond streusel topping. I knew if I added the almond streusel topping Josh wouldn’t be able to eat the galette since he is allergic to nuts. So what did I do? I made the almond streusel topping. It just sounded too good not to make. I know, I was totally being selfish, especially since Josh made the galette dough, but you will understand after you taste this galette. The almond streusel topping is amazing! So I am really not that selfish, I made this galette for all of you, not just me:)

I love galettes because they are easy to make and very forgiving. The rustic look is in! It doesn’t matter if the galette is perfectly round or even. You just fold up the sides around the blueberries and streusel and call it good!

I ate one piece of this galette and knew I was in big trouble. It was TOO good. I knew if it sat and stared at me on our kitchen counter I would eat it all by myself. So, I shared the galette with our neighbors and they loved it. I was trying to redeem myself from being so selfish and making the galette all for me:) I am glad I ended up sharing because they loved it!

Blueberry Almond Streusel Galette on twopeasandtheirpod.com  A rustic summer dessert that everyone will love!

This Blueberry Almond Streusel Galette is a winner! The galette crust is thick, slightly crunchy, buttery, and a great base for the sweet and juicy blueberries. The almond streusel takes the galette over the top. Blueberries and almonds are a match made in heaven!

Blueberry Almond Streusel Galette on twopeasandtheirpod.com  Galette dough is SO much easier than pie dough. This recipe is easy and SO good!

You can serve the galette with ice cream or whipped cream, but I think it is perfect all by itself. I cut a piece on the pan and didn’t even take time to get a plate. It’s a rustic dessert, so why use a plate? Less dishes to do!

It’s a holiday week and I think you should start celebrating by making this Blueberry Almond Streusel Galette. There’s no reason to wait until Thursday to start celebrating. But if you want to wait and make this dessert for the 4th of July, your family and friends will thank you, it’s fabulous!

Blueberry Almond Streusel Galette

Yield: Serves 6-8

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Blueberry galette with an almond streusel topping. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, if desired.

Ingredients:

For the galette:

1 3/4 cups all-purpose Gold Medal flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup coarse cornmeal
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cold butter, cut into small pieces
1/3 cup buttermilk
2 cups blueberries
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cornstarch

For the streusel topping:

1/4 cup all-purpose Gold Medal Flour
1/4 cup light brown sugar
2 tablespoons almond paste
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup sliced almonds

1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons turbinado sugar

Directions:

1. To make the dough, combine flour, sugar, cornmeal, and salt in a processor; pulse 2-3 times. Add butter and pulse 4-5 times, or until mixture resembles coarse meal. With the processor running, slowing pour the buttermilk through the chute, processing until the dough forms a ball. Remove the dough ball and adhere any remaining pieces of dough to it, then wrap in plastic wrap or parchment paper. Refrigerate for at least 45 minutes before rolling out.

2. Center a rack in the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl, combine the blueberries, 1 tablespoon of sugar, and cornstarch. Set aside.

3. To make the streusel topping, combine the flour, brown sugar, almond paste, butter, and almonds. Rub together with your fingers until the ingredients come together and form a streusel topping.

4. Remove the galette dough from the refrigerator and place on a sheet of parchment paper. Starting at the center of the dough, roll out, forming a 14-15-inch wide circle. Place the dough with parchment paper on a baking sheet. Place the blueberries on top of the dough, leaving a 2-inch border. Sprinkle the almond streusel over the blueberries. Fold the dough border over the blueberries, overlapping where necessary and pressing gently to adhere the folds.

5. Lightly brush the edge of the dough with the egg and sprinkle turbinado sugar over the galette crust.

6. Bake the galette for 45 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown. Transfer the baking sheet to a wire rack to cool to room temperature before slicing. Slice and serve.

*Note-you can make the galette dough in advance. It will keep in the refrigerator for 3 days. Serve the galette with whipped cream or ice cream, if desired.

    Loving this, Maria! I haven’t made a galette in forever. Maybe a few years! I think I made peach. But the blueberry sounds incredible and adding streusel is so creative. I don’t think I’ve ever had a streusel galette before! Gorgeous.

    I’m kind of obsessed with galettes and how rustic and pretty they are. And all things blueberry too! So basically I could eat this entirely by myself. :)

    I’ve used so many great recipes from your website but you’ve outdone yourself this time. I just want to take this into the closet with a fork and not come out until it’s all gone.

    Ok… I’m ready to dig into this galette. I have such a thing for rustic desserts. Galettes and crumbles are totally my scene. Cakes, pies…. not as much. This looks glorious.

    I agree – holidays that fall in the middle of the week totally throw a wrench into the normal routines but it’s better than no holiday at all! This galette is truly beautiful!

    This is everything I love about pie, minus the fuss of shaping the crust! Blueberrys + that crunch-a-licious topping? SOLD! Happy 4th of July!

    The polenta base has to be the best bit of this galette for me. I love cornmeal in pastry as it give it more body and you get that sweetness from the corn. I can not think of pie more fitting for 4th of July than this.

    i was just talking to my dad about how it’s a bummer the holiday is in the middle of the week. No one is going to want to go to work Friday. I’ve never made a galette but this looks like an amazing one to start with

    I’m not a pie consiseur either – my crusts always fall – so I love galettes just for the reason that they always look amazing and rustic Every time!! Love it Maria, and totally perfect for the 4th. :)

    It does look amazing with that almond topping, I think your selfishness paid off! Those blueberries look so… well, blue too! I don’t think the blueberries I’ve bought look any where near that blue, more purple
