Author Notes: The crust for this recipe is adapted from Alexandra Stafford's superb recipe for Peach Frangipane Galette. I like to use half whole-wheat flour for a bit of texture, plus a little extra salt. I added some rosemary, which I think pairs really well with the fresh blueberries. This recipe is also wonderful with equal parts strawberry and rhubarb.lisina

Food52 Review: This rustic galette is quick to make and, if you don’t pile in too many blueberries, it fits wonderfully into a picnic spread -- or could even be eaten as the entire meal. Besides, with all the fresh fruit and whole grains, it's fairly healthy, right? I am going to keep telling myself that while I grab more.snowcitygirl

Serves 8

Rosemary Crust

  • 1 1/4 cups all-pupose flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 1 1/4 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, very finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar, plus extra for dusting
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 16 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small cubes
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cups ice-cold water
  • 1 egg, beaten, for glazing the crust

Blueberry Filling

  • 2 pints fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 cup turbinado sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  1. Preheat oven to 400° F
  2. In a Kitchenaid mixer with the paddle attachment or a food processor, mix together the dry ingredients. Add the cubed butter and mix or pulse until butter breaks down into pea-sized pieces. If you don't have a stand mixter, you can use a pastry cutter, kitchen knives, or even (cold) hands to crumble the butter in the dough. Just try to work quickly if using your hands so the butter doesn't melt!
  3. With the machine running or pulsing, add the ice water until the dough JUST begins to come together. Without the mixer, you can use your hands for this step.
  4. Turn the crust mixture out onto some plastic wrap, then wrap it and flatten it into a disk shape. Refrigerate for about 10 minutes while you prepare the filling.
  5. Throw all the filling ingredients into a bowl and mix well, so that that the sugar and flour coat all the blueberries.
  6. Remove the chilled crust from the fridge and unwrap it onto a silpat or piece of parchment paper large enough to cover your baking sheet. Dust it with flour, then roll out the dough until it is between 1/8 and 1/4-inch thick.
  7. Spoon the filling and its juices into the middle of the crust and spread it out, leaving a 2-inch border of crust. Fold the border of the crust over onto the filling, creating nice rustic edges.
  8. Brush the crust with the beaten egg and sprinkle it with sugar. Slide the galette, still on the silpat or parchment paper, onto a baking sheet. Bake for about 40 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.

I am making a blueberry galette. I have a lovely bottle of blueberry wine from Whispering Oaks winery. I have looked at at least 12 recipes, so that I can use the wine. Haven't found any. I am afraid adding a couple tablespoons might any recipe watery. Any ideas for this recipe?

i don't think a couple tablespoons will tip the scales. maybe use it in place of the lemon juice?

Anyone tried using frozen berries? Wondering if I should thaw then first.

Works great with frozen berries! Used a few frozen blackberries, too. This is a great recipe, though I have not yet included the rosemary.

I made this for a family party and it was a big hit. The berry filling is not too sweet and the combination of rosemary crust and tart/sweet ripe berries is amazing. Everyone who tried it loved it. Will definitely make again--soon!

This is a lovely combination with the rosemary and blueberries. I added some lemon curd on the bottom for a nice variation.

Lovely recipe... just for fun I swapped almond flour for the whole wheat flour, cut back by a quarter on the butter to balance the fat in the almond flour and instead of the rosemary used the zest of a lemon and ¼ teaspoon mace. This is an homage to a very old blueberry cake recipe we love. Then because I love the blueberry filling I put the crust in pie plate, increased the filling by 50%, but rolled the dough over the edge like a galette. It was fabulous!!!! The crust my most favorite! Thank you for the inspiration!

absolutely! i made it a second time and used both a pair of knives plus my bare hands to prep the galette dough and it worked just fine.

We loved the crust, but my spouse ended up drizzling a bit of maple syrup on the berries since he needed a bit more sweetness. We used demerara instead of turbinado sugar, so maybe that was the difference. It's probably not quite such a bad thing, since people have different preferences for sweetness. We didn't have any problems with rolling out the crust.

Uh oh my galette dough isn't rolling out easily - it is cracking off on edges in chunks. Not sure what went wrong as am following instructions closely

this happens to me sometimes when i don't add enough water. usually 1/2 cup is more than enough, but if you're not sure, add a little more. to save the dough you're working with, try sprinkling the edges with a bit of water to reattach the chunks that have come loose, then sprinkle your dough with more flour so the pin doesn't stick. i hope this helps!!

It all worked out in the end and was a hit for dessert. Very rustic looking but pretty ... And not a scrap left over after five of us went back for seconds and then slivers after that as we sat around the table
