14. Berry Galette

We have actually made two versions of this fun, homey pie-like thingie. The first was pretty much by the book and the second was just for fun. The photos are of the first galette. Blueberries galore. We liked it. The second we fudged a bit and used part of the pie dough left from the Blueberry Nectarine Pie of No. 13. Barney had a school friend stay over and we just threw in nectarines, blueberries, peaches, and fresh cherries and it was glorious! Our guest had quite a treat. -Deborah

Lizzy and I had a lot of fun making it with everybody. She isn’t exactly the best chef ever, but we helped her out, plus she had fun doing it. The galette turned out really well and I liked it a lot.:) – Barney

It was fun to help Lizzy and she kind of got the hang of it after a while. I liked the first and second galette, but the second one had a really nice crust with the pie dough. The cherries had a lot of juice in them and that helped with getting the crust a little softer. The homemade whipped cream tasted very good on the galette, and the whipped cream was good after a few hours in the fridge. It was a little more fluffy than it was just after being whipped. -AJ

    1. Thanks! Love your posts. We are in rural Arkansas and often have to improvise ingredients. Surprisingly successful, so far. You have inspired us to bake something special in honor of Julia.

    1. We did lose a berry or five to taste-testing team members, but snatched victory from the jaws of defeat with promises of homemade whip cream at the medal ceremony

  1. My daughter and I had thought about making the galette with cherries, but were to lazy to pit them!! Glad the kids enjoyed them!

    1. You and your child look sublime. Treasured, precious moments. Thanks for your comment. It is so hot here this summer ice cream is always a good idea, but we were out. Heavy whipping cream to the rescue.

  2. I wish I had used the berry-nectarine pie dough for my Galette. I just had a difficult time with that pastry dough and you all didn’t seem to mention that. Wasn’t this delicious? Despite the dough problems (and I will go with the pie dough next time), I loved the look of this rustic pie. And, merci, for the heads up on the Google Doodle this morning. I usually open to the it but have changed my home page. I would have missed it. Such a fun doodle and everything that Julia was about.
