Blueberry Galette Recipe | Dessert | Easier than making a pie!

Difficulty Easy

Blueberry Galette Recipe: A galette is a dessert, like an easier version of a pie. A galette recipe has 2 parts: The crust (buttery! flakey!) and filling is normally fruit-based (thick! tasty!) Optional: topping it with oat streusel (buttery-oaty goodness) and your fave ice cream.

Steps To Make a Blueberry Galette:

First, make the galette crust. My recipe is a combo of all purpose flour and almond flour. Make sure you chill the crust in the fridge for 2 hours. (So…do this step in the morning or the day before)

Second, make the oat streusel recipe. Streusel is a buttery topping for the galette. This recipe will be enough for 2 galettes. So, either half the recipe or save the remaining (in a sealed container in the freezer). Or use your own recipe instead!

Third, make the filling and set aside.

Fourth, roll out the crust, until 1/4 inch thick (I roll on a rolling mat).

Fifth, Fill it with the blueberry filling.

Sixth, fold the edges in, about 1 inch. Rotate. The edges should slightly overlap.

Seventh, transfer the galette to a lined-cookie try. Be careful! (I used an offset spatula to help me)

Eighth, top with 2 tbsp unsalted, chilled and cubed butter

Nineth, Brush edges with egg wash (1 egg + 1 tbsp water, or milk).

Tenth, If you have it, top edges with demerara sugar. Top with streusel. Bake. Enjoy.

QUESTIONS ON MAKING A GALETTE

How does a galette differ than a pie?

Galettes are French. They are more rustic in shape. The shape is free form. No fancy pie dish is needed. Perfect for beginner bakers or someone who has never baked a pie before.

Why blueberries?

Blueberries are high in pectin, which is a fiber found in fruits. So….it acts like a natural thickener. Plus I love ’em.

Can I skip the oat streusel topping?

Yup of course!

What do I serve with a bluberry galette?

Vanilla ice cream or homemade whipped cream are the two best choices.
