It’s summertime. That means it’s that time of year when I crave all sorts of fresh seasonal fruit baked into pies, tarts, cobblers, crisps and the like. Preferably served with a side of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, and enjoyed outdoors on a warm evening with friends and family. Who wants to come over and help me make this summer fantasy a reality?
I’ll bake you some of these incredibly simple and rustically elegant blueberry galettes.
When you don’t have time or the patience to make a pie, galettes are the perfect solution. Think of them as a pie without the pan. Simply spoon the filling into the center and fold the dough up and over it. This obviously won’t work for more runny fillings, but for a berry pie it’s perfect. Instead of one large galette, I made 6 mini versions, great for individual portions and grabbing on the go. Blueberries were what I found in abundance at the store that week, but feel free to adjust the recipe to include whatever fresh berries or other fruit you can find.
While these blueberry galettes are an ideal evening dessert, they’re great for breakfast or a quick snack too. Most of these galettes were snatched from the kitchen in between diaper changes and feedings and gobbled up as finger food.
Whatever you do this summer, make sure you bake a dessert made from fresh fruit from your local farmers market or u-pick farm. And make sure to invite me over to share it with you!
