So what do you make when you husband brings home bowls of fresh blueberries? I found myself pondering this question last weekend. You may have seen my updates on instagram as I made this very important decision, finally deciding on a blueberry galette. Galette is a french word referring to a flat round "cake" made of flaky pastry.
It was a very good decision. Make that a delicious crispy crust with soft juicy blueberries decision. This is a very crispy crust and there is a little secret to this crispy crust...vodka. If you are completely against adding liquor to your recipes, you will be fine to use water in place of the vodka. If you don't mind a few spirits in your food and drink, I would go with the vodka.
After making the dough, form a round and refrigerate it for several hours or overnight.
Almonds are a main ingredient in this crust. Pulse them in your food processor to get small crumbs. Almonds in any form will do since you are chopping them up... sliced, slivered, or whole.
Roll the dough (it will take some effort) onto a wax paper lined counter. Then invert a buttered pizza pan over the dough and lift the dough sheet onto the pizza pan so that the wax paper side is up. Then gently lift the wax paper off the dough and discard.
Now you have a dough lined pan.
Next, make the filling and place it in the center of the dough.
Place small pats of butter over the filling. Then fold up the edges of the dough around the filling. Lastly, brush the dough with egg and sprinkle with sugar. Ready for the oven!
Beautiful, a rustic masterpiece of flaky pastry and sweet juicy berries. Serve with berry topping and whipped cream or ice cream.
