  • Total Time: 60 min

Ingredients

Units Scale

For Crust Use: Ultimate All-Butter Pie Crust

Blueberry Filling:

  • Ingredients
  • 2 cup fresh blueberries (I also like using frozen blueberries especially Wyman's Wild blueberries)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons flour (if using frozen berries add 1 teaspoon more of flour and sugar)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice (you can omit this, but I love the slight nutty flavor it adds)
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 Tablespoon butter - pea sized pieces

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F
  2. Unwrap pie dough from the fridge, roll out on floured surface to make a large circle (about 16-18 inches in diameter)
  3. Place the dough on a piece of parchment paper that is on a baking sheet.
  4. In a bowl add sugar, lemon zest, allspice (if using), and flour. Mix together with a fork or whisk. Add in the blueberries, vanilla, and lemon juice and stir to coat.
  5. Pour blueberry mixture into the center of the pie dough and gentle spread out leaving a 2-3 inch boarder on the edges). Start folding the edges up and over the edge of the filling. Do this around entire galette.
  6. Dot the top of the galette with the pea-sized butter pieces. When completed, set aside. Crack an egg and beat it with a fork. Brush the edges of the pie crust with the egg wash (this gives it the golden brown color).
  7. Place in the oven on the center rack and bake for at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes then turn down the temp to 350 degrees F for 25 minutes. Remove when the crust is golden brown and the center is bubbly.
  8. When done, remove from oven. and let the it sit for at least 10 minutes, allowing the sweet fruit juices to thicken slightly.
