My husband and I have been craving for pies lately, and it just so happens that there’s new bar recently opened a block away called “Pie Bar.” First thing I thought was “finally! a pie shop close to our place!” Ever since they opened weeks ago, we have been regular customers. In fact, I am having their Coconut custard pie right now while writing this post. We just love pie. Period. That is why I really treasure this blueberry galette recipe. A galette may not be a “pie” since I haven’t used my pie dish at all for this recipe, but I believe this is a rustic form of it. Galette is a cousin of pies and tarts, and the easiest to make because they are virtually formless. This recipe is so simple; you can make the pastry with just a few ingredients, use your favorite fruit as filling, then work your way around the dough to create pleated edges. I still need to work on my pleating though, but it doesn’t have to be perfect and that’s what makes it rusty and very homemade.
If you don’t want to make your own pastry for this, you may use a a 9-inch refrigerated pie dough. Personally, I haven’t tried using a refrigerated pie dough for this recipe but I read in some recipes that they use them. If you did use the pie dough, please let me know how It turned out, I would really appreciate that! But, If you are feeling adventurous then I suggest you try making this pastry on your own. It will be worth it I promise! Just imagine crusty, flaky and buttery crust just as you take your first bite, then the blueberries will add a fruity sensation in your mouth.
