It is a commonly known fact that pie is absolutely delicious. It’s also known that pie is kind of an undertaking. The hardest thing to make? No. A task to tackle? Yes. I’ve never successfully completed a pie.
Which brings us to the much easier, pretty much as delicious galette. The galette is a French free form crust-based item and it’s amazing. If you’re in a rush, just use store-bought crust that you can unroll. If you’re feeling extra Martha Stewarty, make your own pie crust. Having very little counter space makes rolling out dough a bit difficult so I take the store bought route.
It’s so easy you should make two, because one will be gone before you know it!
makes 4 servings
1 sheet pie crust dough
2 cups fresh blueberries
2 tablespoons granulated sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line an edged baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat. In a small bowl, combine the blueberries, sugar, cornstarch, and lemon juice and stir until the berries are evenly coated. Place the pie crust on the baking sheet and mound the berries in the center. Leave about 2 inches of space to the edge of the dough. Fold the edges of the dough over the berries, making sure to be gentle enough not to make tears. Sprinkle the extra sugar around the folded edges of the galette. Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool completely before serving.
