I’ve been obsessing over blueberries lately. If you look at all my recipe ideas, you will see about half of them feature blueberries. Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve had a special fondness for blueberries. When I was about 6 or 7 years old, my best friend, who was also my neighbor, introduced me to what she called “blueberry cereal,” which was basically a bowl of blueberries with sweetned milk. I would beg my mother to buy blueberries whenever she went shopping so I could have blueberry cereal every chance I could get.
I don’t know how long this blueberry cereal craze went, or what made me stop eating it, but blueberries always have a special place in my heart.
One of the best flavor pairings for blueberries is lavender (at least in my opinion), which I think was another reason I’ve been obsessing over this beautiful little berry. I need to bake with more lavender!! This blueberry lavender galette was meant to be and let me tell you, it was such a delicious idea. Words cannot possibly express how freaking delicious this galette is. I mean, the blueberry and lavender come together so beautifully and are perfectly balanced and brightened with the lemon zest and oh my gosh, I ate maybe an entire blueberry lavender galette within the span of 24 hours (I made four of them to make sure the recipe was just right…. I have such a hard job!) and I still crave more.
I turned this into two smaller galettes, but you can easily make it into one larger galette or even divide it into four smaller ones. You know, so you can more easily keep one all to yourself. Prep time does not include wait time
