first, i would like to thank everyone who visited my blog last week and for all the comments! i appreciate you!
on to this galette . . . such a fancy name for such a simple, rustic and homey tart.
this was light, thin crust and studded with crunchy cornmeal. just the right note with sliced peaches and the most blueberry-tasting of blueberries i've had all summer.
i was a little less than excited about two weeks of pie . . . see last week's posting if you have any questions about my pie attitudes. while the closest this galette gets to my beloved streusel topping is the crunchy turbinado sugar on the crust edges, i would make this again.
it's the type of light summer dessert that perfectly highlights the natural sweetness of any fruit at the peak of it's season.
and it's so light you can serve it with ice cream. lots and lots of ice cream. this is sweet corn ice cream with raspberry chambord sauce and lemon frozen yogurt with white chocolate. thank you, again, jeni's fabulous ice cream recipes.
the ice cream? it was for the birthday girl.
birthday galette on a steam august evening, after a night of champagne cocktails, cut-throat board gaming and good friends.
not bad way to wind down the summer.
