Instructions

Crust:

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • On a baking sheet, toast pecans for about 10 minutes at 350 degrees, until fragrant and just beginning to darken, tossing once. Let cool.
  • In a food processor, process pecans until they're the consistency of coarse meal. Add flour, sugar, salt, and cinnamon to the food processor and pulse just to combine.
  • Add chilled butter pieces and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse meal with a few pea-size pieces.
  • Transfer dough mixture to a large bowl and drizzle 4 T of ice water over the Dough. Mix, adding another tablespoonful of water if needed, just until mixture comes together.
  • Form the dough into a 6"-diameter disk. Wrap the disc in plastic and place in the refrigerator to chill for 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 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, toss together blueberries, cornstarch, lemon juice, and ¼ C sugar.
  • Lightly flour a surface and roll out dough into a 12" round. Carefully transfer dough round to a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Mound blueberries in the center of dough, making sure to leave a 2" border.
  • Fold edges over of the crust over, overlapping slightly onto the blueberries.
  • Brush edges dough with milk and sprinkle with sugar.
  • Bake galette at 375 degrees until the crust is dark golden brown and the filling is bubbling, about 45–50 minutes.
  • Let cool before serving.
  • Make Ahead: Dough can be made 2 days ahead and kept chilled (or in freezer for one month). Galette can be baked 1 day ahead, so long as it's tightly wrapped and kept at room temperature.
