Mixed Berry Galette

We have had a  plentiful berry harvest this year and there is nothing like a Fresh Berry Galette dessert for dinner, a casual meal or a special afternoon treat.  This Mixed Berry Galette offers the freshness of the berries and the rustic appearance of the galette. We have served this lovely dessert for dinner parties and a simple lunch on the back porch.  I am excited to share it with you today.
