Ingredients

Frangipane

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1 egg
  • 1 drop almond extract, optional
  • 1 pinch salt

Galette

  • 1 pie crust
  • 12 ounces blueberries, 2 packages, washed and dried
  • 1/2 recipe frangipane
  • 1 egg, for brushing the crust
  • 1 teaspoon coarse sugar, for the edges of the crust

Instructions

Frangipane

  • In a blender mix together all of the ingredients for the frangipane filling. Reserve half in an air tight container in the fridge for another later use (I promise to give you more tasty applications for this!!). This should stay fresh for 1 week in the fridge.

Galette

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees and set out a rimmed baking sheet. 
  • Roll out the pie crust on a parchment sheet. Use flour to make sure the crust doesn't stick and also flip it occasionally to prevent sticking. 
  • Spread out the frangipane (half of the above recipe) in a circle about 1.5 inches shy of the edge.
  • Top with all of the blueberries, heaping up on top of the filling but not on the edges. 
  • Fold up the edges working clockwise.
  • Whisk the egg reserved for the crust. Use a pastry brush or your fingers to brush the edges of the crust with the egg (you don't need to use much but make sure to cover it all so the crust gets golden brown. Then dust with the coarse sugar. 
  • Carefully transfer the parchment sheet carrying the galette onto the baking sheet. 
  • Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour or until the blueberries are a little bubbly and the crust is golden brown. 
  • Let cool 5-10 minutes then serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
