Feast your eyes on these charming little cream cheese, blueberry and rhubarb baby galettes! Then, brace yourself for a wild confession…
I was a rhubarb virgin.
I could think of no better introduction to this mysterious fruit than to surround it with my most favorite berry.
The only berry with the ability to make my knees grow weak. On sight. With their magical properties everything they touch turns to gold. Blueberries can do no wrong, I’m sure of it.
Of course the flaky, buttery pastry helped. And the lemon-kissed cream cheese had its part to play too.
The rhubarb transformed from bitter and offensive in its raw state into something completely likable, if not delectable.
If you’re a rhubarb virgin too, don’t look the other way when you spy the pretty stalks in your market.
Embrace them. Show them some love. And they might just love you back.
You can omit the rhubarb and use all blueberries or even a mix of berries, if you prefer.
