About The Recipe

I don’t think there is a better way to enjoy the summer than baking a galette. It’s like a pie but soooo much easier. There’s not all the rolling and re-rolling and worry. It’s just simply rolling out the dough, placing the blackberries in the middle, folding it up, and baking! The best part? There is no excess pastry dough to worry about!

It’s so easy and so good.

Not to mention impressive! They look so much harder to make than they really are. Plus, they are seriously delicious.

It’s like having your own little pie to yourself!

To be honest, I had never really had a galette before until we made our Roasted Cherry Tomato and Thyme Galettes, but after that, I was in love! I immediately asked my mom if we could make more, but something a little sweeter.

We settled on blackberries because we both adore them and we actually saw some blackberries growing across the street from us! It felt like the perfect thing.

And it definitely was! These blackberry galettes turned out to not only be a family favorite, but our friends and neighbors adored them. It felt only right to share them with you guys.

Instructions

In the food processor, pulse to combine the flour and sugar.

Add in a piece of butter at a time, pulsing a few times in between until the mixture resembles a sand-like consistency.

Now, pour in the heavy cream and apple cider vinegar. Pulse until combined.

Separate the dough into 4 small rectangles, about 5 ounces each. Wrap in plastic wrap and set in the fridge for about 30 minutes.

Take out the dough one at a time, rolling them each individually on a lightly floured piece of parchment paper.

Return the rolled pieces into the refrigerator for a few minutes.

Now, combine the blackberries and sugar in a medium sized bowl. Fill each pastry individually with about 1 cup of blackberry filling. Brush the crust with heavy cream and sprinkle some course sugar.

Bake the galettes at 350 for about 25 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.

    1. Hi Melissa! We chose to add the vinegar to make the crust flakier, but don’t worry! The taste cooks out and you have a beautifully flakey, yummy crust for these galettes.

      1. I’ve never heard of using vinegar in any kind of crust before why do you use it
        I’ve heard of some people using vodka I wonder if that’s the same reasons first time I’ve ever heard of using the vinegar I may have to try that one as I love making pies I love making anything with dough

    1. Hi, Laurel.It’s a freeform crust; but if you are using chocolate chips or candy bar pieces, it will work fine. It won’t work for a chocolate pie filling unless you use a pie pan or something with sides. Let me know how it comes out!
