Berry Galette is a perfect mid-summer recipe. I have always wanted to bake a galette, a free form tart. I love baked goods that look rustic and I'm not just saying that because everything I bake ends up looking rustic. I was able to use blueberries from the local farmer's market and I added blackberries and strawberries from farther afield.
Like a few other recipes we've baked these last few months, this one is really quite easy. You just have to plan ahead because the dough needs to rest for a couple of hours. Other than that, you can make this recipe with a bowl and a pastry blender.
I was not delighted with the overall result. I loved the fruit filling and I love the look of the galette, but the dough seemed kind of flimsy for a tart dough. Maybe that's because I used semolina flour instead of courser cornmeal. The next time I make a galette, I may try a different dough.
