Your New Favorite Blueberry Galette

Date

If you're in your lazy girl era and want a blueberry pie but don't want to make one, make a blueberry galette instead!

I love me a good galette (AKA the lazy girl’s pie). This blueberry galette is one of my absolute favorite desserts and I’m confident it’ll quickly become yours, too.

It’s great when served with vanilla ice cream and is one of the best summer desserts!

Ingredients

  • Homemade galette dough
  • Blueberries
  • Cornstarch
  • Lemon juice
  • Egg wash, for crust
  • Lemon zest (optional)
  • Sugar for dusting (optional)
  • Ice cream (optional)

If you’re looking for a foolproof homemade galette dough that you can use for both sweet and savory recipes, I’ve got you covered. You can find my step-by-step galette dough guide here!

If you don’t have fresh blueberries, feel free to use frozen! I think it’s safe to say that we alllll know fresh is typically better than frozen, but it doesn’t make that big of a difference!

When it comes to lemon juice, try to use freshly squeezed lemon juice and not the bottle. In my experience, bottled lemon juice is way more sour (and frankly, not as good) and freshly squeezed!

How to make a blueberry galette

If you plan on making your own galette dough (yay!!!!!! I’m so proud of you) – definitely check out my step-by-step galette dough guide that I linked above. If not, using store bought pie crust will also work.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Take the galette dough out of the fridge and let it rest on the counter for about 15 minutes. In the meantime, combine the blueberries, lemon juice, and cornstarch in a medium-sized bowl.

Then, sprinkle your workspace with flour and begin rolling the galette dough until you have a 12 inch circle. Transfer the dough onto a parchment lined baking tray and scoop out the blueberry filling onto the galette dough leaving about 2 inches from the edges.

Fold the edges over the blueberry mixture and brush the edges with a light egg wash. Sprinkle some sugar on top of the egg wash and bake for about 40 minutes (or until the sides are a nice golden brown).

Let your blueberry galette cool on a wire rack for at least an hour before cutting into it. Top it with some vanilla ice cream and lemon zest and enjoy 🙂

Some quick notes…

Whether you’re making this for friends, family, yourself, or in advance I have good news – you’re able to store leftovers!

If you leave your galette out on the counter, it’ll keep for about two days.

If you wrap your galette in aluminum foil and place it in the fridge, it’ll last you about five days.

If you freeze your galette, you’ll have it for up to two months!

Now, if you do choose to freeze it, I recommend reheating it in the oven for about 10 minutes at 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
