This is the first time I have ever tried making a galette. After trying it, I can only wonder what took me so long! They say it’s like if a cake and a pie had a baby, it would definitely be this free-form delectable dessert. And you probably all know that saying “it’s as easy as pie”, well, in this case truer words were never spoken – it’s actually way easier than making a pie. And it comes out as juicy and delicious as a traditional blueberry pie.

Why is it easier? Let me tell you, I think the biggest reaspon has to be that is is made with just a single crust on the bottom so there is so need to worry about getting the top crust on right or fluting the edges. It’s just a free-form dessert that takes just a few simple steps & out comes this beautiful, easy rustic blueberry galette. It’s the perfect dessert for unexpected guests, taking a total of just a little over 30 minutes, 10 minutes to put it together and 25 minutes to bake it, or just because you feel like treating yourself.

Just take a look at just how easy it is to make and you’ll be chomping at the bit to make it right away.

Place a 12″ diameter pie crust on a parchment lined cookie sheet. I use a refrigerated packaged pie crust, rolled out a little thinner, to keep things simple but you could also make your own. Check out our deliciously flaky pie crust here. Pour filling into center, remembering to keep a 1-1/2″ border around edges to fold over.

Fold and pleat crust over edge of blueberries. Brush crust with beaten egg and sprinkle generously with Demerara sugar. This coarse sugar gives a nice sweet crunch to the flaky crust.
