Easy Balsamic Berry Galette

Man, do I love berry season. Strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries. All of them. And I can never resist picking up a carton or two when I walk by at the market. Last week my poison of choice were some huge blackberries. (They were as big as my thumb, I swear.) It’s been a no-days-off kind of time around here, so I didn’t want to spend hours in the kitchen. I opted for this berry galette that’s super quick and easy, the balsamic gives it a savory sort of kick.

 

EASY BALSAMIC BERRY GALETTE

• 1 pint berries (I used blackberries)
• 2 Tbsp sugar or honey
• 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
• 1 pie crust – from the refrigerator section or your own rolling pin
• 1 egg, beaten
• honey

Rinse berries and place in bowl, coat with sugar or honey and add vinegar. Refrigerate for an hour or so, until the berries release some of their juices. Grease or use cooking spray to coat a cookie sheet, place your flattened pie crust in the center. Drain the berries and place them in the center of the pie crust, leaving a 2-inch border around the edges. Fold in the edges of the crust in and pinch together where they overlap. Lastly, brush the top and sides of your unbaked galette with egg. Bake for 40 minutes at 375º or until edges are golden brown. Once done baking, allow to cool on a rack until room temperature. Cute into pieces (serves 4) and either drizzle with honey or top with vanilla ice cream (or both!).

    I like to think of myself as a self-proclaimed baker of fine pies, so I’m delighted to come across this pretty little challenge! Can’t wait to try it in my own kitchen. Thank you for sharing, Kelly!

    Though it sounds a little strange, a little bit of thyme is excellent in a berry tart – especially with grated lemon peel.

    Galettes are one of my favorite quickies in the kitchen, especially when I have to throw something together for a last minute get together and keep it real and rustic. Whoever invented pre-made pie dough is a savior!

    I just made this, and it was really good and easy to make! It was a bit tart for my tastes though, I used Blackberries. Might try the blueberries last time.
