Strawberry and Blueberry Galette

This is a wonderful, easy and delicious recipe. It's also a lot of fun to make it with your children.
My daughter really likes to help me in the kitchen. She's only 11 but might have a future in the culinary world ... hopefully, in Paris! But for now, all I can do is to instill in her a love for cooking and baking.

So here's what we made together. Enjoy!  

Pâte Brisée (Recipe Michel Roux)

  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup unsalted butter - cut into small pieces and softened
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon cold milk
  • Mound flour on your work surface and make a well in the center. Place butter, salt, sugar, and egg in center of well and mix together using your fingers. Slowly incorporate flour into butter mixture, using your fingers, until a slightly sandy dough forms
  • Using your fingers, slowly incorporate milk until dough begins to come together
  • Using the palm of your hand, knead dough until smooth, 4 to 5 times. Roll dough into a ball, wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use. 

 Berry Mixture:
1 box of strawberries - washed and cut in half
1 box of blueberries - washed
1 tablespoon butter - cut into small pieces
3 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon honey

Set oven to 350 degrees
Mix the berries, sugar and honey in a bowl - set aside.
Roll out the dough. 
Place the berries in the middle of the dough. 
Place butter over the berries.
Fold the edges of the dough. 
Brush the dough with egg wash
Sprinkle with some sugar
Bake for about 40 minutes.
