  • ½ tsp vanilla bean paste
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt
  • tsp fresh nutmeg or dried
  • 1 tsp lime zest
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar

Instructions
 

Making the Crust

  • Pulse the flour and salt in a food processor four times each for 1 second
  • Remove the butter from the refrigerator and cut it into ¼ inch cubes. Add it to the food processor and pulse until you have a course meal texture
  • Empty the mixture into a medium sized bowl and add the apple cider vinegar and ¼ cup ice water. Mix thoroughly with a fork
  • Continue to add ice water 1 TBSP at a time, mixing between each addition until dough just starts to come together but looks a little shaggy still
  • Press the dough together with your hands and quickly knead 4 times. Do not overwork the dough
  • Press the dough into a disk and wrap in plastic wrap
  • Refrigerate for 1 hour before rolling out. Dough can be refrigerated for up to 3 days or frozen for 30 days

Mixing the berries

  • Mix together the strawberries lime juice and sugar in a bowl and set aside
  • Mix together the blueberries, lime juice and sugar in a bowl and set aside
  • If you don't want to place the strawberries and blueberries in a certain pattern you can just mix all of the strawberry mix ingredients and all of the blueberry mix ingredients in the same bowl

Making the Cheesecake Batter

  • With a hand mixer on medium speed blend up the cream cheese, vanilla bean paste, salt, nutmeg and lime zest until smooth
  • Add in the egg and blend until smooth
  • Add the powdered sugar and continue blending until smooth

Making the galette

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  • On a lightly floured surface roll out the dough to a 14-16 inch circular shape. It does not need to be perfect
  • Spread half of the cheesecake batter on top of the dough leaving a 2 inch border around the edges and set the rest aside
  • Arrange the berries in whatever design you'd like on top of the cheesecake batter layer. Poured right on top is perfectly fine as well
  • Dollop the rest of the cheesecake batter on top of the berry later
  • Fold the edges up the the berries all around the galette
  • Beat the egg and brush the edges of the crust with it. Sprinkle the edges of the crust with the Demerara sugar
  • Bake for 45 minutes or until a medium golden brown
  • Enjoy hot or room temperature!
