These are the BEST fresh Blueberry Galettes, one of my favorite things to make with the abundance of gorgeous blueberries in the summer! Fresh sweet blueberries are baked in an easy, flaky homemade crust – uncomplicated and perfect – and sure to be the most irresistible fruit galettes you’ve ever had!
A touch of fresh rosemary adds a gourmet flavor to the sweet and tangy blueberry filling, and the tender crust is sprinkled with sparkling sugar and chia seeds for a sweet crunch. So fast and easy to make, these tiny treats are perfect served warm with ice cream or sweetened whipped cream - the perfect rustic dessert for barbecues and picnics, garden teas, or a special after dinner treat!
WHAT IS A GALETTE?
A galette is a French pastry that is a free-form pie or pastry. Instead of being baked in a pie or tart pan, the edges of the dough are simply folded over the filling and baked. Galettes can be sweet or savory, big or small, but we’re especially fond of seasonal miniature fruit galettes! The colorful and fresh fruit fillings are a treat for both your eyes and your tummy!
The best thing about galettes vs traditional pies is that they're meant to look rustic and imperfect – and are super easy to make! These are the perfect pastry to make whether you are just starting out and learning to work with pastry dough, or have been baking for years. To make a galette, you cut or shape circles of pie dough, spoon your filling into the center, and fold the edges over to hold it together. That's it!
Galettes can also be made with yeast-raised doughs, resulting in a dish more like a calzone. They can be sweet or savory, but they’re always delicious! These sweet pastries are also known as Crostata in Italy. Whatever you call them, they are wonderful!
RECIPE TIPS & TRICKS:
RECIPE VARIATIONS FOR SWEET GALETTES:
Besides being ridiculously easy to make, you can use your favorite fruits to make galettes for any season of the year! You may want to substitute pure vanilla extract for the fresh lemon juice and zest, depending on the flavor profile of the seasonal fruit you are using! Any berries can be substituted in the same quantities but other fruits might require a slightly different amount of clearjel or cornstarch - check out this guide for fruit to cornstarch ratios for more information. These fruits all work well in galettes – have fun and experiment with your favorites:
