Rustic Blueberry Galette Recipe Homemade

I've totally been on a Galette kick lately. First I was craving a fresh Peach Galette, then since I had fresh blueberries, I decided I'll just make multiple.


... and I'm glad I did! Zach and I ate them both faster than I'd like to publicly admit. Lol!


What's a Galette?

For those of you who may not know, a Galette is basically just an open-faced, free-form pie. It's pie without the frills - less complicated, a bit rustic, and just as delicious (if not more)! No tart pan or pie dish needed - just a baking sheet! Pretty much a dream come true, right?


If you're familiar with the term Crostata, that's essentially the same thing as a Galette! (Italian vs. French, y'all)!

Blueberry Galette


If you've read my Peach Galette post, making a Blueberry Galette isn't much different! I use roughly the same filling ingredients for any Fruit Galette.


Actually, this recipe is even easier since you just throw the blueberries on the pie crust rather than arranging them in layers.


Blueberries are a lot easier to find than Peaches, so this recipe is good almost year round!


Ingredients


Here's what you'll need for the perfect Blueberry Galette:

  • 1 Pie Crust (homemade or store-bought) - I used a classic, all butter pie crust recipe from AllRecipes and added some sugar!

  • 2-3 cups Fresh Blueberries

  • Sugar

  • Cinnamon

  • Salt

  • Cornstarch

  • Fresh lemon juice (sprinkled on blueberries for extra flavor!)

  • Butter

  • Egg Wash for Crust

  • Turbinado Sugar for Crust


Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream!



This recipe is easy - the pie crust is the only frustrating part at times!


I'll be honest, homemade pie crust makes all the difference in Galettes. Nothing beats a fresh, all butter pie crust. It adds the ultimate level of flaky and fresh compared to store bought dough.


BUT - you can still absolutely use store bought pie dough in this recipe! I've done it too when I wanted to whip these up quickly. It's still delicious, and it definitely makes the recipe a lot easier!


Baking Time


If you read my Peach post, you'll know that I recommend baking this until the crust is completely golden brown. I tested two versions on the same day, and the Galette I baked longer was noticeably better, with a crispier outer crust.


Unless the edges start to burn, bake this for the full 40-45 minutes. You may need more or less time depending on your oven. Mine usually takes around 43 minutes!


Don't forget to serve with Vanilla Ice Cream or Whipped Cream and ENJOY!
