Makes: 10 servings

The great thing about a blueberry galette recipe? The more rustic (read: messed up) it looks, the better. Novice bakers, this one’s for you.

Ingredients

Dough

½ cup pecans
 
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
 
2 teaspoons sugar
 
½ teaspoon kosher salt
 
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
 
½ cup (1 stick) chilled unsalted butter, cut into pieces
 

Filling and Assembly

12 ounces blueberries (about 2 cups)
 
1 tablespoon cornstarch
 
1½ teaspoons fresh lemon juice
 
¼ cup sugar, plus more for sprinkling
 
All-purpose flour (for surface)
 
2 tablespoons milk, half-and-half, or heavy cream

Instructions

Dough

Preheat oven to 350°. Toast pecans on a rimmed baking sheet, tossing once, until fragrant and slightly darkened, 10–15 minutes; let cool. Pulse pecans in a food processor until the consistency of coarse meal. Add flour, sugar, salt, and cinnamon and pulse just to combine. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal with a few pea-size pieces remaining.

Transfer to a large bowl; drizzle with 4 Tbsp. ice water and mix, adding another tablespoonful of water if needed, just until mixture comes together. Gently pat dough into a 6″-diameter disk. Wrap in plastic and chill at least 1 hour.

Do Ahead: Dough can be made 2 days ahead. Keep chilled, or freeze up to 1 month.

Filling and Assembly

Preheat oven to 375°. Toss blueberries, cornstarch, lemon juice, and ¼ cup sugar in a large bowl.

Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to a 12″ round. Carefully transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Mound blueberries in center of dough, leaving a 2″ border. Fold edges over, overlapping slightly. Brush dough with milk and sprinkle with sugar.

Bake galette until crust is dark golden brown and filling is bubbling, 45–50 minutes. Let cool before serving.

Do Ahead: Galette can be baked 1 day ahead. Store tightly wrapped at room temperature.
