Mini Blueberry Galettes

Tuesday, June 26, 2018

I seem to always have blueberries in the refrigerator. I think they secretly multiply in there :) I love blueberries and eat them every morning. Problem is, no one else will willingly grab them out of the fridge and snack on them. So I have to make something that involves sugar and butter to sway their taste buds. I usually just end up making blueberry muffins, but every now and then I will make these galettes. They are perfect for a small dessert, travel well and make great gifts for friends and neighbors. And you can use any fruit you have on hand. Strawberries, raspberries, peaches. Yum! They are super easy to put together , especially if you use a package of store bought pie crust.

Mini Blueberry Galettes
1 box refrigerated pie crust
2 cups fresh blueberries
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1 lemon
1 egg
1 T water
cinnamon sugar, for dusting

1. Preheat the oven to 425*. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the blueberries, sugar, cornstarch, 1 tsp lemon zest, juice from 1/2 of a lemon, vanilla, salt. Combine well and set aside.
2. Unroll the 2 pieces of dough. Using a 5" bowl, trace 3 circles on each round disc of dough. Reroll the leftover dough and make 2 more circles.
3. Place the dough rounds on 2 baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Using a 1/4 measuring cup , place a mound of blueberries in the center of each piece of dough. Fold the edges of the dough over the blueberries , creating a crimp.
4. In a small bowl , whisk the egg and water. Brush the edges of each galette with the egg wash and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
5.Place the baking sheets in the oven and bake at 425*  for 15 minute, or until the crust is golden and the filling is hot and bubbly. Remove from the oven and let the galettes rest on the baking sheets for about 5 minutes to cool.
6. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
* you can garnish with fresh herbs for a pop of color. I used mint in the picture.
