A recipe for Mini Blueberry Galettes. Mini Blueberry Galette dessert recipe. Blueberry Galette recipe. Hi Everyone! I hope you all had a fun and safe New Years! Do you all indulge in New Years resolutions? Not me. Why? Because I’m realistic. I know even if I tell myself that I’m giving up diet coke or will force myself to yoga 5 times a week…I know it’s not going to happen, so why put myself through all the fuss? I’ll do my usual dress up for yoga and end up sitting on the couch to catch up on housewives and continue to order menu items I know I shouldn’t because my willpower  just doesn’t exist.

For those of you who have made New Years resolutions and plan on keeping them, I applaud you. For those of you like me, here’s an awesome dessert recipe that’s also super simple to put together. When the end of summer hits I tend to go on a berry binge and freeze and preserve as many berries possible. This is a great time to take advantage of some of those frozen berries. These mini galettes are great to have in the morning with your coffee or at night, slightly warmed with a bowl of vanilla ice cream. Happy New Years! Now lets start it right by forgetting the diets and baking these awesome sweets, okay?

Mini Blueberry Galettes
Makes 14 to 16

Ingredients:
cream cheese crust:
1 cup all purpose flour, plus more for dusting
¼ teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
4 ounces cold cream cheese, cut into small cubes
1 tablespoon cold water
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
filling:
8 ounces fresh or frozen blueberries
1 lemon, zested and juiced
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 ½ tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons honey
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground clove
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons water
3 tablespoons granulated sugar

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
2. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt.
3. Place butter and cream cheese into the bowl with the flour mixture and cut together until fully incorporated. The mixture should be evenly grainy.
4. Add water and vinegar and knead together until the mixture comes together and a smooth dough forms, about 2 minutes.
5. Pat the dough into a disc, cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
6. Place the ingredients for the filling into a mixing bowl and gently stir together until well combined and the blueberries are well coated.
7. Once the dough has chilled, place it onto a lightly floured surface and roll out until ¼ inch thick. Using a 2 ½ to 3 inch circle cutter cut out as many circles possible, about
8. Re-roll the scraps and make more circles.
9. Whisk together the egg and water and brush a thin layer over each disc. Place 2 teaspoons of the filling into the center of each disc of dough and fold the sides towards the center, until all the sides have been tucked in.
10. Brush the tops of the dough with egg wash and sprinkle with a small amount of sugar.
11. Place the mini galettes onto a baking sheet, lined with parchment, and bake for 11 to 13 minutes or until golden brown.
12. Allow the glaettes to cool slightly before serving.

    I’m SO with you. Resolute Schmesolute.

    Yum!

    Agreed – resolutions are a crock. If you want to do something, then you should do it because you want to, not because it’s January 1st. And on that note – one should never want to give up treats as cute as these. Happy New Year to you, ladies!

    I make my resolutions very general…I get a lot of leeway that way ;) One of them will definitely be to make more sweet treats like these galettes!

    No resolutions; more pie. Thanks.

    I was all set on eating kale and brussels sprouts and you had to show me cream cheese crust. Regardless, I love those baby galettes. I love the gold pattern in that napkin (tea towel?), too.

    Oh. My. Goodness! These are lovely! And perfectly sized for guilt free snacking. :D

    My hubby fell in love with my standard sized gallettes years ago. I sent him your link and he said, “You could SO do that! Heck, you could do that today!” followed shortly after with, “You _will_ be making them soon right?” which included the sad puppy eyes. I’m making him wait until tomorrow. lol

    Thank you so much for the delightful recipe!

    Love the bite size galette idea. Why is it that I can always eat more bite size-food than I would with full-size portions with out feeling like a pig?

  24. lidia Not Specified Not Specified

    i’m in love with how simple and elegant this recipe looks and
    totally scrumptious :3 i will be making these ASAP. thanks (:

  25. Allison Not Specified Not Specified

    This looked so cute! I tried to make them last week using frozen blueberries, and following these directions step-by-step. They did not turn out well :( The problem lied in the crust. It never stayed folded up. What did I do wrong? My crust was very cold when it went into the oven, but when they came out, they looked like half-cooked mini pancakes with blueberries on top. Any suggestions? Anyone else have success?

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      Hi Allison! It’s a bummer about the galettes. Were the edges of your galettes pinched together securely after they were folded? Since these galettes are so mini, I like to use extra pressure to seal the folded edges together to make sure they don’t burst open and cause the pancake effect you ended up having.

  26. Sara Not Specified Not Specified

    Those are adorable! I think I’d eat four or five at a time… YUM!

  27. Elle @ Chellbellz Not Specified Not Specified

    A year ago I hated Blueberries…but once i started baking with them…i’m in love. I can’t wait to try these. Maybe I can change it with a mixed berry twist. I love mixing them all together. If i blog this i’ll def link it back!

    These are so cute! Could you substitute the crust with ready-made puff pastry?

  30. Kate Not Specified Not Specified

    Do you have any suggestions for making these ahead for a birthday party? Could I par-bake them or leave them uncooked then freeze? They are so cute!

  31. Viv Not Specified Not Specified

    I just made these! I actually got similar results as Allison’s pancake like-ness, but I think that was because I was prone to putting in too much filling in for the crust to stay pinched in together, haha. Thank you for the recipe, though! I really like your site :)

    Hi there! Just wondering if there is a typo here…you say to roll dough 1/4 inch thick, but that is really thick and looks nothing like the photo…was that supposed to say 1/8th inch?? Just wondering since I’m having trouble making them come out right as they’re too thick to even fold over. Thanks!

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      Hi Mary!! Thanks so much for catching that! Yes, it’s definitely supposed to say 1/8 inch. Sorry for the mixup, hope your galettes turned out okay!

  36. Jockobono Not Specified Not Specified

    Hi there! Just wondering if there’s another typo here?

    1 cup flour
    6 Tbls cold butter
    4 oz cream cheese
    make a lump of fat!

    After adding another 1 cup of flour, still the dough is far from grainy.

    And still the recipe calls for 1 Tbl of water and 1 Tbl vinegar. Ye Gads!
    I’m off to search for another recipe for a cream cheese crust.

    Love the idea of mini galettes. My family does not like Blueberries, can I use peaches or strawberries or any other type of fruit? (fresh or frozen).
