APRICOT BLUEBERRY GALETTES Serves 18, makes two 11-inch galettes

DIRECTIONS:

INGREDIENTS:

Make the crust: In a large mixing bowl, whisk the flours, sugars, and salt. Using a box grater, grate the frozen butter over the mixture. Gently rub the butter into the flour to incorporate. Set aside.

Using ½ Stevia lowers overall sugar by 7 grams or 35%

In a medium mixing bowl, stir to combine the buttermilk, vinegar, and ice. Pour half of the wet mixture over the dry mixture and gently toss to combine. Incorporate more of the wet mixture and gently knead until the dough just comes together into a shaggy mass. Divide in half, flatten into discs, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill at least 1 hour or overnight.

• 1 ½ cups spelt or whole-wheat flour

Line two large rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper. Lightly flour a work surface and a rolling pin. Roll out the discs of dough, applying even pressure with the rolling pin, into two, 14” circles. Transfer the dough to the prepared baking sheets and set aside. If not preparing the filling immediately, keep the dough chilled in the refrigerator. Make the filling: In a large mixing bowl, combine the apricot halves and blueberries and toss to coat with ¼ cup each of the sugars, lemon zest, flour, and lemon juice. Arrange the fruit mixture over the two crusts, leaving a 2” border around the edges. Fold the edges of the dough up and over the fruit, pressing firmly to seal the folds. Chill the galettes in the refrigerator until the rim of the dough is firm, about 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 400° F. Remove the galettes from refrigerator and brush the edges of the crust with the egg wash and sprinkle with both sugars. Bake until the pastries are deep golden brown and the juices are bubbling throughout, about 30 to 40 minutes. Allow to cool slightly, at least 10 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature. Galettes will keep well in an airtight container for 1 day, or in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. The galette dough will keep well wrapped in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
