Blueberry Galette (Pan Less Pie)

Summer time is the right time for fantastic fruit flavored desserts. Pies, tarts and crumbles are some of my favorite hot weather desserts, but the French galette is a true crowd pleaser and you dont have to be a pro baker to make it. A galette is like a pie without a pan, filled with a fruit filling and topped with ice cream, whipped cream or powdered sugar. I like to make this dessert because the prep is easy and the outcome is wicked awesome!

You can make the dough from scratch or use store bought pie dough, crescent dough and puff pastry. The fruit filling can be made from all types of berries, and other summer fruits like cherries, peaches, plums and even rhubarb. And remember if you can't get fresh fruit, frozen will work great too.

Blueberry Galette (Pan Less Pie)

  • 1 Pie Dough
  • 3 C Blueberry Filling
  • 1/4 C Flour
  • 2 tbsp. Milk
  • 1 tbsp. Sugar
  • Pre heat the oven to 425 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. The parchment will keep your baking sheet clean and make the surface non stick.

    Remove the dough from the fridge and place on a surface dusted with flour. Roll the dough out into a large circle about 13 inches wide, don't worry about creating a perfect circle. Place the blueberry filling in the middle of the dough, and leave a 2 inch border. Carefully fold the dough up and around the blueberry filling to create crust, overlapping the dough is all good.

    Brush the edges of the galette with the milk and then sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 35 minutes or until golden brown, turning halfway through cooking. Remove front he oven and let cool until serving.

    Pie Dough

  • 1.25 C Flour
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 1 tbsp. Sugar
  • 1 stick Cold Butter, small dice
  • 2 tbsp. Ice Water
  • Place the flour, salt and sugar in a bowl and toss to combine. Place the butter chunks into the mixture and press into the flour with your hands until the mixture is crumbly. Mix in the ice water and press the flour mixture into a ball of dough, the mixture will be crumbly. Wrap the dough ball tightly in plastic and flatten to form a disk. Place in fridge and chill for 2 hour or until very firm.

    Blueberry Filling

  • 3 C Blueberries, washed and dried
  • 1/3 C Sugar
  • 2 tbsp. Cornstarch
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla
  • 2 tbsp. Lemon Juice
  • 1 tbsp. Lemon Zest
  • Place all of the ingredients into a bowl and toss to combine.
