Blueberry and Blackberry Galette I think this blueberry and blackberry galette is one of those things on my list of potentially intimidating things to make. It comes from one of me favorite dessert cookbooks, Dessert of the Day: 365 recipes, for Everyday of the Year from Williams-Sonoma I think all of my favorite recipes that require some additional work essentially start out this way. Regardless, I preservere and push forward and I am always amazed at the results. I encourage you, my humble re...
