Ingredients

  • Crust:
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon apple pie spice
  • 1 stick unsalted butter cold, cut into tablespoons
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • ¼-½ cup flour
  • Mixed Berries:
  • ½ pint strawberries washed, tops removed, sliced
  • 6 oz. blackberries washed
  • 6 oz. blueberries washed
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar dark or light
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 2 tablespoons sugar garnish
  • 7 mint leaves chopped, garnish
  • pint your favorite ice cream

Instructions

  • In a food processor add flour, sugar, salt, and apple pie spice, pulse 3 times to combine. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal with a few pea-size pieces of butter remaining. Drizzle in water until dough ball forms (add another tablespoonful of water if needed). Transfer dough to a ball and cover tightly with plastic wrap and chill for at least 45 minutes.
  • In a bowl mix strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, cornstarch, brown sugar, black pepper, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, vanilla and salt let sit for 10 minutes.
  • Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to a 12" round. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Mound berry mix in center of dough, leaving a 2" border. Fold edges over, overlapping slightly. Brush dough with beaten egg and sprinkle with sugar.
  • Bake galette for 40–45 minutes. Garnish with mint let cool, serve with scoop of ice cream.

Notes

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Dough can be made 2 days ahead. Keep chilled, or freeze up to 1 month. If you’re in a rush you can just roll out dough and continue with recipe.
Galette can be baked 1 day ahead. Store tightly wrapped at room temperature. You can use frozen mixed berries, just thaw them and strain off the liquid so it doesn’t make your galette crust mushy.
