I can’t explain it but I’ve been thinking about making a galette for months. There’s something just so seriously sexy about them. And this is how it works with me – I’ll have a thought and it’ll sit and stew until I make it. Anyway, today it hit to me to finally make one and to use blackberries. And basil. So I did!

Yep, just like that. Because the best thing about making a galette is how easy it is. First, we just make a quick pie crust (super easy in the food processor, but this is not required). Then we mix up a lovely lemony cream cheese. Then we just assemble and bake. Very quick. Very easy. And then we have a super sexy fruity delicious dessert.
