Berry Galette

Cal Giant | August 22, 2017

All of my friends keep posting pictures of their European adventures and I can't get over how amazing their food looks! I’m familiar with the Italian classics such as gelato and caprese, but I’ve never seen French pastries such as galette or canelé. Since my Midnight in Paris moment will have to wait, I've decided to transform my kitchen table into my own Paris terrace with a warm, ooey gooey berry galette!

This berry galette is SO good! As berry fanatics, we had to fill this treat with all the berries we could find. For the galette we cooked down strawberries, blackberries and blueberries to create the perfect filling to a warm, buttery base.

For the dough:
  • 1 1/3 cup all purpose flour

  • ¼ tsp kosher salt

  • 8 T butter, diced and kept cold

  • ¼ cup ice water (fill with ¼ cup water first, then add ice)

For the filling:
  • 3 cups California Giant berries – 1 cup blackberries, 1 cup blueberries, 1 cup halved strawberries

  • 4 T sugar

  • 2 T flour

To top:
  • Zest of half a lemon

  • 1 egg + 1 T milk (egg wash)

  • 1 T sugar



  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees

  • In a food processor, pulse together flour and salt

  • Add butter and pulse till pea size clumps are present (approx. 8 times)

  • Turn processor on and slowly drizzle in water (not the ice) until dough comes together

  • Remove and roll out into a 12-13 inch circle on a floured surface

  • Stir together the filling ingredients and then place in the middle of the dough, spread out leaving about 2-3 inches to the edge without berries

  • Using your fingers, fold the 2-3 inches of dough over top of the berries and crimp.

  • Whisk together the egg and milk and then brush over top of the dough edges

  • Sprinkle with sugar and lemon zest and then bake for 30-35 min.

  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.

  • Slice like a pie and serve!
