Blueberry Galette

Author: Sarah Bates | The Chef Next Door

Makes 8 servings


Ingredients:

1 refrigerated pie crust, or homemade crust 

4 cups fresh Wish Farms Blueberries

1/3 cup plus 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar

Zest of an orange plus a Tablespoon of the juice

1 Tablespoon all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 egg, beaten 


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat and set aside. Allow the pie crust to sit at room temperature while the oven is heating up. 


Place the blueberries in a large bowl and gently toss with the 1/3 cup of sugar. Add the orange zest and juice, flour, and salt and and stir until everything is evenly mixed.


Unroll the dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Pile the blueberry mixture in the center of the dough. Fold the edges of the dough inward over some of the fruit to create a crust about 2 inches wide, pleating the dough as you go.


Using a pastry brush, brush the dough evenly with the beaten egg. Sprinkle the remaining two tablespoons of sugar directly on the dough and the fruit.


Bake until the crust is golden brown, about 50-55 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool. When the galette is cool enough to handle, transfer it to a serving plate or platter. Cut it into eight slices and serve with a dollop of whipped cream, if desired.
