Mascarpone matches nicely with blueberries and makes Blueberry Mascarpone Galette Recipe creamy and rich in taste.

I have made this galette several times and tried to wrap filling and fruits in store bought pie dough. The taste is also great.

For this dessert, I recommend using Mascarpone instead of Ricotta since Ricotta has much more water while Mascarpone has buttery texture. It is important that the bottom of galete remains dry once bake :

If it is difficult for you to find a cheesecloth, Joshua Engel ( Quora ) says:

There are lots of alternatives. A coffee filter will work, slowly. A fine mesh sieve will work fast (too fast; you’ll lose some of your cheese). People have even used pantyhose or cloth napkins.

Let’s be creative !

 

During the process of preparing this blueberry mascarpone galette, I usually have problem with overlapping the edges of the dough. If it doesn’t stick firmly, you may use toothpicks to keep the shape you want:

Once you put your mascarpone galette together, you may some dough left. I suggest you cut little flowers out of the leftovers to garnish the top, before or after baking. If you do so, brush them with milk also and sprinkle with brown sugar. If you bake some of them separately, next to your galette, take them out when golden brown on the top.

It takes about 5 – 7 minutes.

To avoid soggy galette bottom, sprinkle the dough bottom with cornstarch, tapioca or flour so it absorbs the juices while gallete is in the oven and prevents the crust to become too moist. It usually happens with high water content fruits.
