Mixed Berry Mini Galettes
I have been living off of blackberries, strawberries, and blueberries. My berry obsession continues, this time in dessert form. Josh and I made Mixed Berry Mini Galettes for dessert. Ok, Josh did most of the work, but I helped arrange the berries on the galette dough. I also had a healthy portion of dessert:)
These mini berry galettes are beautiful and look like they take a lot of time and skill to make, but they really are easy. Don’t tell anyone, it is our little secret:) Galettes are perfect for dessert when you don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen, but still want to impress. I love mini galettes because everything mini is more fun. You can make one large galette if you wish. We enjoyed our mixed berry galettes with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. A dollop of whipped cream would also go nicely with these berry galettes.
If you are looking for a new way to enjoy berries, try Mixed Berry Mini Galettes. This simple dessert is perfect for spring and summer. I know we will be making this recipe again and again.
Mixed Berry Mini Galettes
Yield: Makes 4 Mini Galettes
Cook Time: 40-45 minutes
1 3/4 cups all-purpose 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 mixed berries ( I used fresh blueberries, blackberries, and strawberry slices)
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons turbinado sugar
. 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 pat it into a firm ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 45 minutes before rolling out.
2. Center a rack in the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F.
3. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and place on a sheet of parchment paper. Cut the dough into four equal parts. Starting at the center of the dough, roll out each piece of dough into a circle, about 6 inches. Place the dough with parchment paper on a baking sheet. Arrange mixed berries in the center of each galette, leaving a 1-inch border. Fold the border over the berries, overlapping where necessary and pressing gently to adhere the folds.
4. Lightly brush the edge of the dough with the egg and sprinkle crust and berries with turbinado sugar.
5. Bake the galettes for 40-45 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown. Transfer the baking sheet to a wire rack to cool for at least 20 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
*Note-you can make the galette dough in advance. It will keep in the refrigerator for 3 days. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream if you wish.
