“ Equal parts rustic and elegant, this easy-to-make free form pie, or galette, is as beautiful as it is sweet. The deep purple berries and plum complement each other on top of a crisp, buttery crust for a fresh seasonal dessert. Beth, Recipe Hunter ”
This stunning berry galette comes together so quickly and easily that the genius responsible dubs it “the lazy girl pie.” A galette is a free form pie originating in France in which the buttery dough is stretched and folded over the filling to contain the fruit and create a perfectly irregular edge. Galettes tend to be very simplistic and elegant, often highlighting just a single ingredient, so the quality becomes very important. This version features two of summer’s best fruits for a berry purple and incredibly inviting treat. Blackberries and plums are both naturally tart with a subtle sweetness, and mesh seamlessly together in this elegant and rustic dessert.
“ My cooking philosophy is that in my kitchen you'll see a mix of simple classics and more challenging techniques that help me grow as a baker. I love baking with seasonal fruits and vegetables and creating something delicious and beautiful at the same time! ”
