Very Berry Galette

Step-by-step

Grown-up steps: Make sure to use cold butter and to work fast when making your pie crust. Warm, buttery dough is much harder to work with! And remind kids to use oven mitts when placing the galette into the oven and taking it out.
  1. Heat oven to 400° F.
  2. Using a pastry cutter, food processor or two forks, mix together flour and butter until the mixture is well-combined, resembling coarse sand.
  3. Add half of the cold water, and continue to blend until it forms dough, adding the rest of the water. Roll into a ball, flatten to form a disc, and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  4. In a medium bowl combine the berries with the sugar and cornstarch, and mix until coated.
  5. Roll out the dough into a ¼ inch-thick disc, and place on a parchment-lined baking pan. Add the berry mix to the center of the dough. Fold up the edges to seal the filling, overlapping the dough in a fan-like pattern.
  6. In a small bowl combine the egg and water. Brush the egg wash on the edges of the dough and sprinkle evenly with turbinado sugar.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10-15 minutes before serving.
