Tuesdays with Dorie: Mini Berry Galettes

I have been meaning to join Tuesdays with Dorie for a while now. The book the group is working on now is Baking with Julia, by Dorie Greenspan.

It happens to be one of my favorite books and I have sticky notes on every other page in the book. They are all recipes I have been meaning to try and just haven’t gotten around to baking quite yet. 
I wasn’t sure if I would find the time to get this recipe together yesterday.  To my surprise, the recipe for this Tuesday luckily was on of my favorites! It’s a wonderful galette dough made with cornmeal. You could also add sour cream to the dough if you are out of yogurt. The dough is amazing. It is soft and has a little crispiness to it form the cornmeal.It was poring rain (again)and my camera battery was about to die. I found a little break in the afternoon to make the dough and I should’ve let it chill a little longer. I’m being too picky because none of my baking testers here were opposed to it’s results. In fact, it disappeared really fast.
I make this galette pretty often with apples and whatever fruits I have on hand that are ripe. I also love to make it for dinner sometimes as a savory galette.I had some perfectly ripe strawberries and some frozen blueberries. I decided to make 6 mini galettes so everyone could have there own pretty little portion; almost like mini pies.
