Mountain Berry Galette
2 c. all purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt
6 T butter
6 to 8 T ice cold water
3 c. mixed berries– blackberries, strawberries, and blueberries
4 T sugar
2 tsp. flour
Pinch of salt
4 tsp. butter
One beaten egg for brushing on pastry
2 T confectioner’s sugar
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Sift together flour and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal.
Add water by the tablespoon full until the dough just comes together. Do not overwork or the finished crust will be tough rather than flaky and delicate. On a floured board, roll dough into a rough circle approximately 1/8″ to 1/4″ in thickness.
Transfer dough to a large sheet pan.
Mix filling ingredients together.
Place berry mixture in the direct center in an even layer, leaving a 1 to 2″ border. Gently fold edges of dough up and over the edge of the fruit to cover 1 to 2″ of the filling. Dot with butter.
Bake in the center of the oven for 25 minutes. Brush crust with beaten egg yolk and bake an additional 10 minutes.
Dust edge with confectioner’s sugar and transfer to a serving platter.
Makes 8 servings.
