Oh. Tim. Honestly. I’ve been mulling your sweet corn ice cream over for a few days now, pondering the pairing possibilities, and I’ve been working far too hard. I should have just waited for you to unveil this bit of yum.
I’m a super fan of galettes, too. I don’t think I’ve made a “proper” pie in years as a matter of fact and have blogged about several iterations. This is nice… buttermilk and cornmeal in the pastry dough. I’m sold. This weekend… dinner at friends’.
this looks incredible! i completely relate about the blueberries too because my bf and i are the same exact way. it’s not close to my fav fruit (raspberries) but it’s definitely his. this gives me hope that we can both be happy with this dessert. :) i also wanted to say thank you tim. it’s my blog’s one year anniversary today and lottie + doof is initially what inspired me to start my own, so thank you!!!
Pam! Agreed about those raspberries- one of the best things ever. Galettes are so awesome, and allow us to be a little lazy, right?
Jordan! That is amazing. Congrats on one year, and thanks for the sweet message.
wow! love this…LOVE!
i have already rolled out cornmeal dough for a (“pardon the expression”) galette in my freezer…
& now it will have a home & gloriously accept the fresh blueberries that i just bought @ the market…how timely for me….& i am with you bryan!
mmmm, Looks delicious! I love the rustic look of it as well! hardly anything beats a perfectly ripe bit of fresh fruit, but i think blueberries are one of those things that are just that little better when cooked. Definitely going to give this one a go!
Okay — looking through the post & comments I’m hearing about needless sacrifice’s, forgoing one’s own favorite fruits to cater to someone else’s favorites. I can’t resist encouraging you to try a couple of perfect & easy pairings. Blueberry Peach Cobbler is a beautiful thing. Also, Blueberries & Raspberries play very nicely together in any desserts you would normally use one or the other in. Everyone gets to be happy at the same time! Lucky me — I have all three calling to me from my refrigerator right now.
I always think of blueberries as being too juicy / jammy for a galette. I’ve never ventured much beyond stone fruits for this kind of thing. You’ve proven it’s possible! And pretty! With Sweet Corn Ice Cream, I can’t think of much that could be yummier.
This looks great. And can I just say thank you for posting pictures of your juicy, delicious looking, but not structurally-flawless galette? I’ve never made a galette because I’m sure mine will crack and overflow, but it’s great to see that they’re clearly still worth trying–and soon!
Just made this last weekend, paired with the corn ice cream! We are in Maine, so we have plenty of blueberries! Thanks for the recipe – it was great. I’ll admit – I’m not sure if we’re sold on the corn ice cream, but this galette recipe is a keeper.
Made this for company this weekend. I added 1 tbsp of finely chopped fresh rosemary to the crust and used a mixture of fresh figs, blueberries and raspberries for the filling. It got rave reviews! I loved it so much, I’m looking for a reason to make it again!
Tim, that first photo looks so good, I just want to reach into my screen and taste it. Still haven’t had a chance to make the corn ice cream… maybe this week. But since you beat me to that recipe, I’ve been developing another corn-based dessert. ;) Hope my dessert turns out as yummy as this galette looks!
Tim thank you for this. Blueberries are my favorite and this was delicious! I would agree, blueberries are great frozen too. Taking cue from your favorite, I was inspired to use the other half of the dough to make a peach tart. Used some cinnamon, nutmeg and Jo Snow fig vanilla black pepper syrup additions, and peaches now come close to a second favorite in my book.
I have a seriously (read: SERIOUSLY) sick obsession with galettes – I am not exaggerating when i say I make them at least twice per week. And peach galette is my fa-a-a-avorite. With cherry cream cheese. But, I’m really digging the blueberry + cornmeal version and am going to have to make this next!
First time caller. ;] Also – first time galette-baker – I’m more of an entree, side, salad maker – from back in my sous-chef days. This was out of sight, gents. I got some incredible blackberries *and* blueberries from my local produce market (shout out to Courtney’s @ Castro and 14th-represent!) which really made this dark, berry-laden-goodness. Thanks for the post and recipe, again.
ok, i finally made this lovely galette with apples (it is November, after all) and can I say….it was divine. The dough was out of this world, and so easy to put together. My nephew said it was like a giant cookie…and then he went for seconds! Thanks for another great recipe Tim. And congrats on the gorgeous wedding!
Is it OK for me to comment a year later? :) I was wondering how you thought this cornmeal dough compared to Julia Child’s dough found in “Baking with Julia” from years ago. I LOVE JC’s cornmeal galette dough but I see this one has more butter in it and more butter, like Paris, is always a good idea.
