Galettes are delicious. They are also incredibly versatile and can be filled with meats, cheeses, vegetables, and fruits. Right now berries are plentiful and we had a surplus of strawberries and blueberries. Today, the youngest one and I made an improvised galette. This dish is so simple to make and it comes together in no time. Even non-bakers can pull this one off! The best part is it looks rustic and tastes delicious.
1 pie crust
1 cup of diced fresh strawberries
1 cup of fresh blueberries
1/2 cup oats
1/4 cup of sugar (Brown sugar can be used instead!)
2 tablespoons of diced cold butter
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Line a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper.
Center the pie crust on the parchment paper and set it aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine the berries, oats, sugar, butter and lemon juice. Stir until combined.
Pour the berry mixture into the center of the pie crust. Spread on the pie crust leaving the 3 outer inches without filling.
Fold over the outer edges of the pie crust toward the center. Crimp the crust with your fingers where necessary to help keep the baked juices inside.
Bake in the oven for approximately 30 minutes.
Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
