Blueberry Chamomile Galette.
Bursting with fresh summer blueberries, sweetened with chamomile infused honey, and made using flakey, buttery, puff pastry, this blueberry galette is truly a summertime treat. It’s beyond delicious, so incredibly easy, and extra pretty. Bonus? You can swap the blueberries for your favorite berry or use a combo of fresh berries! Either way, you can’t go wrong with this galette.
There’s really nothing I love more than food that tastes good and is pretty too. It’s not something that’s easily achievable, but in the summer months, the food is really pretty, full of colors, and delicious. I love it.
Usually when it comes to sweet things, you guys know how I do it, chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate. It’s pretty obvious though, lately I’ve been slowly changing my ways, and incorporating more fruit based desserts into my life. As you might expect however, I don’t really consider this galette a dessert, more like a sweet breakfast or brunch item, but I’ll let you guys decide what course you’d like to serve this with.
Anyway, to say that I am excited to share this recipe would be an understatement. Oh my gosh, I’m just in love with this galette. It’s so pretty, so delicious, and so easy. It uses one of my favorite summer berries and my favorite edible flower. It’s also served with ice cream, which you know, is always a great idea.
You see? All in all, it’s pretty much just all kinds of perfection.
So let’s talk about the details.
First things first, the chamomile tea infused honey. If you’ve never infused your honey with tea, now is the time to start. It’s not an intense flavor, but lends a really nice flora touch to the galette, and I love the combination of chamomile and blueberries. It’s a simple step, but adds so much. Plus, anytime I infuse a recipe with chamomile, it just gives me an excuse to decorate with chamomile flowers, my all time favorite.
Funny story? I had been mentioning to my dad for weeks and weeks about how much I wanted fresh chamomile flowers. For whatever reason we haven’t been able to find them at our Whole Foods this season and I have been so bummed about it. BUT he was out last week and finally saw some there. He bought all four bunches, knowing I would be SO excited. However, he then went on to pick Asher up from school and take her to the animal shelter, where they often volunteer, walking dogs, etc. Unfortunately, when he returned home he totally forget about the flowers, and left them in the very hot car, overnight, without any water.
They all died. Not gonna lie, I was bummed. Especially since he bought all the chamomile Whole Foods had in stock. I couldn’t even get anymore. I was able to save the few you see in these photos, but other than that, I had to give the rest of the flowers to the goats.
At least they got a nice feeding outta them!
Once the honey is infused with chamomile, toss it with fresh blueberries, and a little lemon. Arrange the berries overtop a sheet of puff pastry, wrap everything up into a cute little pastry packet, and bake until the galette is golden and the blueberries are bursting and beautiful.
Simple as that. How does it taste?
Every bite is bursting with sweet blueberry flavor. THE BEST.
I of course serve this up warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It’s the only way to do it up, if you ask me.
My hope is that you guys will all come to love this recipe as much as I do. As I mentioned above, you can really use whatever berry you love or have an abundance of this summer. Blackberries, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, or a combo of your favorites, all will work and they’ll be delicious.
I personally think I like the blueberries best, I just thought this was extra good. In fact, I wish I could be eating this instead of frantically preparing to board an airplane tonight for a two-week trip. One week of vacation, one week of work in NYC. Obviously, totally worth all the effort, but man, I wish this galette was in front of me right now.
Lucky for you guys, it can be in front of you in less than an hour if you share my excitement for this dish and get up to make it now. Which you should do, because I mean, everyone needs a good Tuesday treat, you know?
Trust me here. Make this today, tomorrow, this weekend, and all summer long. You’re going to love it.

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
2. Bring the honey to a low boil in a small saucepan, simmer 1 minute and remove from the heat. Add the tea bags, cover and steep for 10 minutes. Remove the tea bags.
3. In a medium bowl, combine the blueberries, chamomile honey, cornstarch, lemon juice, and vanilla.
4. On a lightly floured surface, roll the puff pastry out into a rectangle about 1/4 inch thick. Place the pastry on a parchment lined baking sheet and arrange the blueberries over the pastry, leaving a 1 inch border. Fold the edges up and over the blueberries. Brush the edges of the pastry with egg and sprinkle with sugar. Transfer to the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. It is OK if the edges get dark.
5. Let cool slightly and serve with ice cream. Enjoy!
The perfect slice of blueberry galette.
