Blueberry Galette with Tvorog Cheese

"The tvorog (farmer's cheese) brings out the tartness of the blueberries, so it's perfect for breakfast, dessert, or as a snack with tea. Galettes have lovely rustic feel and are simpler to make than pies."

Recipe Card

For the crust:


  • 1 1/3 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 8 tablespoons cold and cut into cubes butter
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup tvorog

For filling:


  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 1 cup tvorog


  • Step 1

    In a mixer or large bowl, combine the flour, salt, and sugar.

  • Step 2

    Add the butter and mix until the dough is crumbly.

  • Step 3

    Stir in the water, lemon juice, and tvorog until smooth, but try not to over mix the dough.

  • Step 4

    Roll the dough into a thick disk. Wrap in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for one hour, or the freezer for just 15 minutes.

  • Step 5

    While you're waiting or the dough to chill, mix corn starch, brown sugar, and lemon juice. Add in the blueberries, coating them with the mixture.

  • Step 6

    Remove the dough from the fridge or freezer and roll into a 10-12 in round. (Tip: To prevent sticking, roll out the dough on parchment paper and keep the plastic wrap between the dough and the rolling pin).

  • Step 7

    Spread tvorog to the base of the dough, leaving at least a two-inch border. Spread the blueberry mixture on top and fold the edges of the dough toward the center, over the filling.

  • Step 8

    Bake at 400°F for 35 minutes or until crust is golden. If the galette is baked too long, the tvorog will become rubbery.
