This cherry and blueberry galette is an easy and delicious dessert. Served with a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream, it’s a delight. I used frozen berries because fresh berries are only really good in the summer. I’m a big proponent of frozen ones because they’re picked at the height of their growing season and are cheaper than buying out of season berries.

  1. My wife made a similar galette with fresh blueberries and a combination of dark and Ranier cherries when the latter were in season. It was de-lish. Galette’s have become a go to desert for us for all the reasons Emily cites in the post. Rustic goodness at it’s best.
