For the past three summers, we have had a little tradition of spending a weekend with friends at their house in New Hampshire, which just so happens to be nestled in the midst of rows and rows of blueberry bushes. We spend the entire weekend elbow-deep in fresh blueberries! Last year, we decided to make these tasty little blueberry galettes, and this recipe has been a favorite of ours ever since!

What is a Galette?

A galette (pronounced Ga-let) is basically a flat, round pastry dough wrapped over a delicious filling. It is similar to a tart or a pie, but it doesn’t require as much work or any special baking pan or utensils. Galettes can be sweet or savory. When filled with meats and cheeses, a galette can serve as a beautiful main course. Usually, though, galettes are made sweet with fresh fruit, chocolates and other sweet ingredients, which produces a dessert that is both rustic and elegant at the same time.

How to Make a Galette

To make a blueberry galette, all you need is a flat surface for baking, a delicious flaky crust, and a fresh fruit filling.

  1. First cut your dough into 5 inch rounds using a cutter, or just grab a bowl, flip it upside down and cut around the rim to create 6 rounds of dough.
  2. Next wash and measure out your fruit. I’m using these deliciously fresh blueberries! Toss them in a bowl with sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, some vanilla, and a little cornstarch.
  3. Place the fruit in the center of your crusts.
  4. Next pleat the edges of your crust to create a rim. (Don’t worry… no one cares how it looks, they only care about how it tastes!)
  5. Brush on a little egg wash over the crust, and sprinkle with coarse sugar.
  6. Bake the blueberry galettes in the oven and voilà! A darling little pastry!
