What KJ Loves about this Recipe
I love that this galette recipe is so homey and easy to put together! There’s just something about working with a pie crust that is comforting to me. You just know it’s going to be good! Galettes give you all the wonderful flavors of a pie with about half of the work. That sounds like a win-win situation to me!
What is a Galette?
First thing’s first, you may be asking, “What is a galette?” Well, let me tell you!
The easiest way to put it: a deconstructed pie. A pie crust is laid flat on a baking sheet and filled with fresh fruits or veggies (the possibilities are endless!) in the center. The remaining boarder of pie crust is then folded over the top of the filling to create the crust.
A galette is a rustic, low-maintenance version of your favorite pie!
Let’s Talk Pie Crusts
Start this recipe off with a pie crust. The main goal for the pie crust is for it to be buttery, flakey and sturdy enough to create the perfect crust and barrier for the berry filling. When it comes to pie crusts, there are several different options to go with. I feel like pie crusts can be a very territorial thing – especially when it’s a family recipe that has been passed down! If you have a beloved pie crust recipe that you love to use, definitely go with it!
Here are some pie crust options:
- Homemade Pie Crust – making a homemade pie crust is a very rewarding task. The end result is something that makes you proud. If you have a favorite pie crust recipe, use that! Otherwise, this Easy Butter Pie Crust from House of Yumm is a great one!
- Pre-made, Store-Bought Pie Crust – this option can typically be found in the refrigerated or frozen section of your grocery store. My new personal favorite comes from Trader Joe’s. They keep them in the frozen section and they are unbelievably good. Taste and feels just like homemade! Pillsbury pie crusts are also a classic.
- Store-Bought, Dry Mix Pie Crust – these can be kept in your pantry for an easy grab and go pie crust option as well!
How to Customize
Another great thing about galettes besides their ease: they are easily customizable! Since they have such a simple structure, they can be easily adapted to fit what you have on hand, or what is currently in season. Here are some ways to customize this recipe:
- Use your favorite pie crust – as stated above, the pie crust portion of this recipe has several different possibilities! This helps you be able to customize the recipe depending on the amount of time you have to prepare the recipe.
- Mix up the berries – use whatever berries are your favorite! Or, if there are certain berries that are on sale or in season that you want to use. Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, mulberries…whats not to love? Or, if you prefer to just have one berry be the star of the show, go with that!
- Prep it ahead – working with a time crunch? Prep this galette in advance so that all you have to do is pull it out of the refrigerator and bake it until golden brown and bubbly! How great is that?
Tips & Tricks
- After the pie crust has been filled and folded over, pop the prepared galette back into the refrigerator while the topping is being made. Keeping the pie crust nice and cold will help it keep it’s shape!
- Take the folded over pie crust to the next level by brushing it with an egg wash and sprinkling it with course sugar. Not necessary for this recipe, but will add and extra “oomph!’
- Try to prevent the pie crust from tearing when folding. Since the galette is sitting free-form on a baking sheet instead of inside a formed pie plate, it can leak the juices from the berries a bit. Personally, I don’t mind it. But, if you are wanting to prevent it, really make sure your pie crust has no tears in it when it’s folded over. I like the rustic look of it!
- Allow the galette to cool and set before slicing and serving if more distinguished slices are desired. Otherwise, the slices will be “looser” if sliced right out of the oven. Either is fine and equally delicious.
- Serve slightly warm or heat up leftovers for a few seconds in the microwave before serving with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. Nothing like a warm slice of “pie!”
