Blueberry & plums Galette

I love galettes, and are one of my favorites treats!

Any type of fruit would be amazing in this galette, At first I think in pears and blueberries, but when I found plums I made with them and frozen blueberries.
You can make with apples, pears,strawberries, peaches, figs, cranberries.
Use whatever's in season.
And savoury combination are delicious too!

Wood cook stove (many houses in the South of Chile (like Villarrica)have these stoves for cook next to the usually  gas stove

Plums and pears from Villarrica in my kitchen today

Blueberry and plums galette



1 1/2 cups flour
pinch of salt
1 tablespoon of sugar
6 tablespoon ice butter in pieces
5 tablespoon ice water


2 cups frozen or fresh blueberries
1 cup plums in slices
2 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 egg beaten
coarse sugar

Vanilla Ice cream


In a food processor(or by hand) combine flour,salt and sugar. Add in butter and pulse until crumbly.
Pour water over flour mixture until a dough starts to form.
Remove dough from processor and make a ball.Wrap with plastic wrap  and refrigerate by 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 180°c  (425°F)
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper: set aside.

Mix together blueberries,plums,lemon juice, sugar,flour and cinnamon set aside.
Roull out dough into a 12 inch circle on top of the baking sheet and sprinkle a thin layer of flour on top.
(This will keep the berry juices from seeping through the bottom)
Spoon fruit mix onto dough leaving a 2 inch border around the edges.Fold edges over covering part of the mixture.Brush edges with egg mixture,sprinkle with sugar and bake for 30-40 minutes or until fruit is bubbling and dough is golden.
Let cool slightly before serving with a big scoop of ice cream.
