Berry Galettes

If there is anything i have struggled so much with just getting around to making, it’s these berry galettes. The plan was to make them last week but my work life turned upside down when i was given a client on the opposite end of the earth and i found myself working at odd times of the day/night and constantly feeling tired. Today i finally decided to make the galettes and i was pleasantly surprised. They smelt so wonderful and i gleefully watched the ice cream melt on top of the hot galette. Am i too old to be excited by the thought of ice cream melting ? i don’t think so.


  • 1 packet (400g) shortcrust pastry
  • 2 cups of frozen berries, drained
  • 1 egg yolk whisked
  • Castor sugar for sprinkling
  • 50g almond flakes (i used way less than that)
  • icecream for serving *optional


  1. Preheat oven to 90 degrees. roll pastry out on a lightly floured surface to 3mm thick
  2. Using a sharp knife cut 12-14 cm circles out of pastry and place on a lined baking tray
  3. Pile berries in the centre of the pastry leaving a 2-3 cm border all around
  4. Fold over the edges of the pastry to enclose the berries (don’t cover completely
  5. Pinch seams to hold pastry in place
  6. Brush sides of galettes with egg and sprinkle almonds and the castor sugar on top
  7. Bake for 25-30 mins
