What Are Galettes

Galettes have a rustic charm and a fuss-free, imperfect appearance and invite your creativity. The dough is rolled out and cut, piled high with fruit, folded around the edges, and baked to perfection. A pastry that’s as visually appealing as it is delicious. 

Galette is a term used in French cuisine to describe flat, round, or freeform crusty cakes. Some are sweet, and some are savory. These small “pies” are rustic-looking and the perfect size for an individual delicious dessert.

Few things capture the essence of summer quite like a mixed berry galette. With its flaky crust, juicy berry filling, and rustic charm, a galette is the perfect way to celebrate the season. Whether enjoyed warm out of the oven with a scoop of ice cream or served at room temperature with a dollop of freshly whipped cream, a mixed berry galette is sure to delight with every bite and leave you longing for more. 

Can You Make Galettes With One Kind Of Fruit

Sure, you can. I have made these in the summer when fresh berries are plentiful–Blueberry, Strawberry, Blackberry, and a combination of all three berries. Whatever you decide, they will be delicious. I decided to use mixed berries for my pies because that is what I had in my freezer at the time, but feel free to use your favorite berries. The choice is yours!

One of the joys of making this mixed berry galette recipe is experimenting with different berries. From sweet strawberries to tart raspberries, the possibilities are endless.

What Kind Of Pie Crust Should I Use

I use a refrigerated Pie Crust for this pie recipe. The pie dough is already made, and the work has been done for me. Yes, I could make a homemade crust, but I don’t. There are some pretty good refrigerated pie crusts at the grocery store, and they make this dessert even easier to prepare. Use a homemade pie crust if so desired.

Ingredients Needed for this Galette Recipe

The ingredients are simple and straightforward and come together to create the best mixed berry galette with a flaky crust, juicy filling, and sweet glaze. Please see the recipe card below for a complete list of ingredients and amounts.

Berry Filling

Mixed Fruit—The fruit filling and berry mixture are your choice. I prefer to use mixed fruit and in-season fruit when available, which makes a delicious summer berry galette. Mixed fruit offers flavors, freshness, and texture to this galette recipe.

Lemon Juice — Fresh lemon juice adds brightness and tanginess to the filling and helps to balance the sweetness.

Sugar — Sugar sweetens the berries and helps to bring out the natural sweetness of the juicy berries.

Corn Starch—Corn starch acts as a thickening agent by absorbing some of the juices, keeping each galette from being runny and helping to ensure a thick consistency.

Refrigerated Pie Crust — Using a store bought crust is easy and convenient. Roll pastry dough spreading slightly with a rolling pin onto parchment paper or a lightly floured surface. You are making a free-form pie crust. 

Powdered Sugar Glaze

Powdered Sugar —  Powdered sugar is used to make the glaze. It adds sweetness and creates a smooth, creamy texture.

Vanilla — Vanilla extract enhances the flavor of the glaze.

Milk or Heavy Cream — Milk or heavy cream is used to thin out the powdered sugar and create a pourable glaze. 

Egg wash

Egg and Water — An egg and water are mixed together to make an egg wash, which is brushed onto the crust before baking.

How To Store Leftover Galettes

You can enjoy leftover galettes even after they have been baked and refrigerated. Allow leftovers to cool to room temperature and then wrap them in plastic wrap or store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. When you are ready to enjoy your leftover galette, unwrap it and heat it in a 350-degree oven on a sheet pan until warm.

Freezing Berries

There are times throughout the year when you can catch berries on sale at the grocery store or market. This is the perfect time to stock your freezer for desserts or smoothies for later in the year.
