Ingredients
  

  • 1 pint fresh strawberries
  • 1 pint fresh blueberries
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 package puff pastry sheets
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 2 tbsp apricot jam

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a cookie sheet with a full sheet of parchment paper.
  • Remove tops from strawberries and slice in even sizes and add to a bowl.
  • Add blueberries and stir to mix
  • Stir in sugar and cornstarch and set aside
  • Place the first sheet of puff pastry on cutting board and gently roll it out a bit to extend size slightly so its about 1/4 inch thick. Cut into even squares and place the squares in single layer on top of parchment paper. Repeat with the second sheet on separate cookie sheet.
  • Pile equal scoops of berry mixture in the centre of each square. Proceed to fold over sides gradually around in a circle ensuring it is sealed.
  • Beat eggs and brush the pastry around each galette until evenly coated.
  • Place in preheated oven and cook for about 30 minutes or until evenly browned.
  • While baking, place the apricot jam in a saucepan or microwave safe dish and heat through until it softens and is a little thinner for brushing.
  • When golden brown remove from oven. Brush the pastry of each galette evenly with the apricot mixture. Serve warm ice cream, whip cream or plain.
