Blueberry Basil Galettes

Ingredients Directions

2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
¼ tsp fine salt
3 tbsp sugar
¼ cup cold vegetable shortening
12 tbsp cold cubed butter
¼ to ½ cups ice water

3 cups blueberries, * washed
3 tbsp honey
2 tbsp cornstarch
2 tsp lemon juice
1 ½ tbsp chopped fresh basil
2 tsp raw sugar
1-4 tbsp water
Topping, after baking:
1/3 cup crumbled goat cheese
Additional chopped basil
*substitute peaches

Sift together flour, salt, and sugar. Add the shortening and work it in with a pastry cutter or fork. Add the butter and mix until it is very crumbly, like cornmeal. Add ice water a bit at a time using only enough for the mixture to form a dough. Divide dough in half, flatten each piece into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate about 30 minutes. Roll dough out into two 10-inch circles. Place on lined sheet pan.
Toss berries with cornstarch, add honey, lemon, and basil. Place half the mixture into the center of the rolled dough. Spread out leaving 2 or 3 inches of exposed dough on the sides. Fold the dough up over filling, leaving center open. Pinch or pleat dough to avoid leaks.
Bake 45 minutes at 375 degrees.
