Rustic Mixed Berry Fruit Galette- perfect for a summer get together!

I can hardly keep berries in the house with my kids.  It seems like by the time I get done putting away the other groceries, they’ve almost gobbled them all up before they even make it to the refrigerator.  I bought a few cartons of blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries that somehow didn’t get demolished and were nearing the end of their life span.  I decided I needed to make something with them quick because I couldn’t stand the idea of all of those [not-the-cheapest-organic] berries going to waste!

So why not throw them all into a pie?  Well, for one, I was feeling lazy and didn’t want to roll out and fuss over a crust.  I decided to use my favorite, simple pie crust recipe anyway but make it into a more rustic fruit galette instead.  Galettes are especially easy to make because they’re basically formless which makes them pretty fool-proof.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 8 tbsp unsalted butter softened and cut into pieces
  • 2-3 tbsp cream
  • 2 cups mixed berries
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp corn starch

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Mix the berries, lemon juice, sugar and corn starch in a large bowl. Set aside in the refrigerator.
  • Mix together salt and flour.
  • Using your fingers, quickly incorporate the butter with the flour mixture until it resembles coarse bread crumbs. (Don't form a paste, or allow the butter to melt.)
  • Drizzle 2 tbsp of the cream over the crumb mixture. Use your fingers to incorporate, it should be damp and hold together when pinched. Add more cream if necessary.
  • Transfer the dough to your baking sheet. Start from the center and pat the dough out to resemble a large rough circle.
  • Spoon the fruit mixture into the center of the dough, leaving about 2 inches around the edges.
  • Fold the edges up around the fruit, overlapping the edges.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until crust is just starting to brown.
  • Allow to cool completely before cutting. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream (optional).

Notes

You can use a premade pie crust if you like. I used a mixture of blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries. Optional: Brush the outside of the crust with an egg wash or leftover cream for a touch of color.
