Fig Blueberry And Pluot Galette


I had never made a galette before. I hate that I could say that. So, dumb. So, I fixed that. I literally put my laptop down mid article and began rummaging through my kitchen. Next thing I knew, I was baking. I love this because for the first time in a long time, I decided to work with what I had. Yes, I wanted thyme, but I figured, eff that bs, this is happening with what I've got and it's going to be amazing. And—toot toot—it so was! 

Use this recipe as a guide but for sure feel free to mix in fruit of your choice. And for fucks sake, have some fun with it!

Beautifully layer your fruit slices in a spiraling pattern starting from the center of your dough and working your way out. Make sure to leave roughly an inch of dough uncovered around the edge.

Bake till your dough is golden—40-60 minutes.
