nectarine blueberry galette

this is one I've been wanting to make for awhile. last summer I'd seen a blackberry nectarine galette somewhere and for the life of me, could not find the recipe when it came to making this one. so, I kind of just... went with it and made up my own recipe. it turned out better than expected. it was amazing, and sweet and tart, and buttery and oh so good. incredible to the last bite.

Nectarine Blueberry Galette

:: for crust ::

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) chilled unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
4-5 tablespoons (or more) ice water
3/4 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

• blend flour and salt in processor.
• add butter; using on/off turns, process until coarse meal forms.
• add 4 tablespoons ice water and cider vinegar; blend until moist clumps form, adding more ice water by teaspoonfuls if dough is dry.
• gather dough together. turn dough out onto work surface. form into ball and flatten into disk. wrap disk in plastic; refrigerate at least 30 minutes.
• after refrigerated, roll out onto a floured surface and trim edges to create about a 10" round circle.

:: for galette ::
3 medium sized nectarines
1/2 cup blueberries
1 3oz package of cream cheese at room temperature
4 tbsp of butter, room temperature
3 tbsp powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla

• preheat oven to 400 degrees.
• slice nectarines lengthwise and remove pit. continue slicing to create circular pieces of fruit.
• blend cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla together with an electric mixer until well blended and creamy.
• spread cream cheese mixture over center of dough, leaving about a 1 inch border.
• layer nectarines in concentric circles in the middle of the dough.
• sprinkle blueberries over top of nectarines.
• crimp the edges of the dough lightly around the nectarines to create a rustic looking crust.
• bake for 30-40 minutes.
