Fresh Berry Galette Recipe


Easier than pie but taste the same! I love to make these since they are so versatile in fruits and a basic recipe. Not so much to worry about making the edges perfect or pretty. Anything goes just follow the basic recipe, fill, fold and bake that's it!


Dough

4 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
3 sticks unsalted butter
3/4 cup ice water

Mix the dough in a food processor until dough come together. Divide into 3 round disks and set aside.

  •  Fruit Filling
  • 4 cups fresh fruit of choice: strawberries, raspberries, boysenberries,  blackberries, blueberries, cherries,  apples, peaches,  or a mixture of them
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup sugar or use  jam that matches the  fruit like blackberry, apple butter, strawberry, blueberry
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • Roll out the dough

    Preheat an oven to 425 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

    Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and roll out into a 13-inch round. Fold the round in half, transfer to the prepared sheet and unfold the round.

    Fill and bake the galette
    In a bowl, lightly stir together the fruit, lemon juice, sugar and flour. Spoon the filling onto the center of the dough, leaving a 2-inch border uncovered around the edge. Fold the edge up and over the filling, forming loose pleats. Bake until the filling is bubbling and the pastry is golden brown, about 25 minutes.

    Transfer the galette to a wire rack and let cool slightly. Cut into wedges and serve.
