Mixed berry cheesecake galette

I’ve previously tried smitten kitchen’s recipe but wanted to attempt it a second time, with actual cream cheese. I forgot the sugar and pistachios to finish, again, but this one tasted like real cheesecake! I used the berry instructions from her other recipe. Sugar-nut topping for sure next time 😉

Pâte Brisée (pastry dough)
400 g mixed berries, frozen
100 g honey
1/2 lemon, juice
1 spoon cornstarch

150 g cream cheese + 250 g mascarpone, softened
4 spoonfuls of sugar
3 eggs plus 1 egg white (save the yolk)
lemon zest (I forgot this)
vanilla extract (didn’t have this time)
pinch of salt

1 egg yolk, beaten
1/2 teaspoon water
turbinado or coarse sugar for sprinkling
1 spoon chopped pistachios

Add honey, lemon, corn starch to berries in a medium bowl. Beat cream cheese, mascarpone, eggs, lemon, vanilla, sugar, salt in a larger bowl. Butter baking dish. Lay out dough. Pour in cream mixture. Pour in berry mixture. Bake in oven at 175 deg C for 35 minutes. Cool. Refrigerate. Serve.

Next time, I’ll make the other Berry galette, but as a handpie with ricotta!
