1 batch Honey Butter pie dough
*if you would like to make the decorative edges, you will need an extra half batch of dough
2 cups blueberry, fresh or frozen (300g)
2 tsp tapioca starch
1 Tbsp lemon juice (15g)
2 Tbsp brown sugar (30g)
1 Tbsp Mishmish blend (5g)
1 egg, beaten with 1Tbsp of water
Prepare a baking sheet with a sheet of parchment paper to line the bottom.
Lightly flour your work surface and rolling pin and roll the dough to a 10” circle, using more flour sparingly as you go to keep it from sticking to the surface or the rolling pin.
* If you are making the decorative edges, roll out the extra dough to 1/8”and cut circles in a variety of sizes and edges.
Transfer the dough to your prepared parchment paper.
In a bowl, toss the blueberry, tapioca starch, lemon juice, brown sugar, Mishmish, and salt to combine well.
Place the fruit mix into the center of the dough, leaving a 2” gap between the edge of the fruit and the edge of the dough.
Work around the edge of the galette, pushing the dough in to make a 1 ½” fold inward, tucking and overlapping as you continue around the edge. You can also lift the paper with the dough for extra support as you fold the sections inward.
* If you are adding the decorative pieces, give the dough a light brushing with the egg wash and stick the pieces onto the edges of the dough.
Move the galette and paper onto the baking tray.
Brush the whole galette with the egg wash.
Place the tray of galette into the refrigerator to rest and chill for 15 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
When the oven is ready, bake the galette for 20-30 minutes, turning halfway, or until the dough is cooked and golden brown.
Allow to cool half an hour prior to cutting to let the crust and juices set.

I made the shape in this free form circle, but the dough can easily be fitted into a pie pan.
Variations and Ideas
You can make this tart with your best fruits on hand or even good quality frozen fruit. Just make sure you are staying within the approximately same weight of the amount of blueberries in the recipe.
