FAQs for Mixed Berry Galette

Can I use frozen berries for a mixed berry galette?

Yes, you can use frozen berries. However, it's important to thaw and drain them well to remove excess moisture, which can make the crust soggy. Patting the berries dry with a paper towel can also help.

How do I prevent the filling from spilling out of the galette?

To prevent the filling from spilling out, make sure to leave a 2-inch border when spreading the berry mixture on the dough. Fold the edges of the dough over the filling, overlapping the dough as you go, and gently press to seal any gaps. This will help contain the filling during baking.
