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?
