Blueberry Galette! This is really a rustic blueberry pie, made without a tin and given a more romantic name. It’s simple, delicious, easy and contains little more than plump, sweet-tart blueberries. A galette need not be complicated, you can use fresh and/or frozen blueberries (which I always have in my freezer) with just a touch of sweetener (you decide how sweet you like it). The galette goes together fast with my perfect pie dough that holds in the berries. The blueberries have a deep purple color when they are baked, which is just the natural drama I like in a dessert. It’s beautiful enough to serve at a party with a scoop of ice cream. But, don’t forget, blueberries have vitamin C, fiber and are heart-healthy, so this is also the best breakfast pastry ever! The pie dough makes two disks, so you can freeze one for later or make two galettes and double the filling. My boys were home when I made this and they ate the first one in a sitting, so I quickly made a second.
You can watch me make the galette in my instagram highlight video. This recipe is also posted on the Blueberries website, here, along with many other blueberry recipes for you to gather inspiration from. Read More
How do you choose the perfect Mother’s Day dessert? You need to know what mom loves, of course, but I think you also need something beautiful and sophisticated. For me, something with meringue is perfect, but every mom loves something a little different. I’ve put together a list of some of my favorite Mother’s Day desserts, which hit all kinds of flavor profiles with the beauty and sophistication moms deserve in recipes that are pretty simple to make.
And if your mom loves to bake, cakes in particular, you could always give her the gift of baking together with my new book, Zoë Bakes Cakes, where I dive deep on everything cake—loaves, layers, bundts, and everything that goes with them.
Fool! That’s the name of this creamy fruit-filled dessert.
What is a fool? It’s a British dessert that includes fruit folded into a custard. The original version was most often made with gooseberries, but it evolved over the years to include different fruits, and some have simplified it by using whipped cream with the fruit.
