A Mixed Berry Galette is the perfect way to showcase summer’s delicious and gorgeous berries! It is so much easier to make than pie, and tastes amazing!
Happy Friday! What are you up to this weekend? We are just hanging out in NYC and I couldn’t be happier! I feel like we haven’t had a relaxing weekend in the city all summer, so I am excited to just chill! And bake. Lots of baking on the agenda! And if you are looking for something delicious and summery to bake this weekend, might I suggest this Mixed Berry Galette? It is one of my absolute favorite summer desserts.
You might remember this Rustic Strawberry Peach Tart from last year. It was one of the best things I made all summer long! My Mixed Berry Galette is basically the exact same thing, except with a different filling! I decided to change the name to make it sound fancy – but don’t let the fancy name fool you. This couldn’t be easier to make!
I became obsessed with tarts/galettes like this years ago at one of our favorite restaurants in NYC, Sfoglia. They have a seasonal fruit tart, and it is one of my favorite desserts ever. We skip it in the winter when it features winter fruits like apple and pear – I’m just not a warm apple person. I eat a raw apple almost every day, but for some reason when they are cooked I don’t love them. But anytime the Sfoglia tart features peaches or berries, I MUST order it. We went on Tuesday night, and they had a strawberry and cream cheese tart, with graham cracker gelato. OMG. It was amazing. I need to recreate that soon!
My Mixed Berry Galette was supposed to feature strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries, but when I went to make it, my blackberries had gone moldy! I hate when that happens! But luckily I had a ton of strawberries and raspberries in my fridge, so it turned into a strawberry and raspberry galette!
The dough for this berry galette is really easy to make. I guess the only “hard” part is shaping the tart…if you have a crack in your dough, some juice will seep out while the galette is baking (see below!). But, it really isn’t a big deal, and it adds to the rustic feel of this dessert, which I kind of like!
Hope you all have a great weekend!
