flat pastry cake topped with blackberries

In other words, the French meaning for the word galette.


I like to call them rustic tarts, but since we are studying French things, galette it is for now.


  Comfort food in simple form; make a buttery crust, throw in two cups of blackberries and a handful of raspberries, add three tablespoons of sugar and 3 teaspoons of cornstarch (I also tossed in about one tablespoon of flour because my berries were juicy), fold the edges of the crust around the mound of berries and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes.
 Of course, I will serve it with vanilla ice cream.
