Galettes are an open faced fruit tart. If desired, mix any leftover powdered sugar with a little more and a teaspoon or so of milk to make a glaze to drizzle over the top.

3/4 cup powdered sugar, divided
1/2 tsp salt
8 oz cold butter, cubed (2 sticks)
8 oz cold cream cheese, cut into pieces
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
4 cups blueberries, preferably fresh

3. Wrap the dough in plastic and refrigerate 90 minutes or overnight.
4. Preheat the oven to 425°,
5. Divide the dough in half, then into quarters, and so on to make 16 pieces.
6. On a lightly floured surface, roll each piece of dough into a 5 inch round,

8. Pleat the edges of the dough up over the blueberries and pinch together, leaving an open top.
9. Place the gallettes on baking sheets, leaving an inch or two of space between them.
10. Chill 20 minutes in the freezer before baking.
