I’m going to preface this recipe by saying that the name of this 10-Minute Blackberry Galette can be a deceptive. While I guarantee that this galette will take you no more than ten minutes to assemble, the baking time will add on another 35-40 minutes. So, hands on time = 10 minutes. Hands off time = 35 minutes, which leaves you just enough time to pull that ice cream out of the freezer and get it perfectly softened and scoopable.

I love serving this dessert for dinner parties since it’s so simple to make, but it’s also totally impressive.

Recently, I served it as part of this four-course dinner paired with Oregon Pinot Noir. I have to say, if you’re in to pairing your dessert with wine, be sure to try that combination. I also have to say that if you’re in to pairing your dessert with wine, we can and should definitely be friends… 

Here’s How to Make a Galette in 10-Minutes:

Start with store-bought, refrigerated pie crust. This isn’t the kind that you find in the freezer that’s already formed into pie tins. This crust comes rolled up, and you’ll find it in the refrigerator aisle, near those tubes of biscuits and cinnamon rolls which I absolutely cannot touch because their spontaneous popping scares me half to death. Strange, because I have absolutely no issues with popping a bottle of champagne…

The rest of the ingredients are simple – Some fresh blackberries, a bit of coarse sugar, vanilla extract and a squeeze of lemon juice get tossed together with a bit of flour. The flour helps to thicken the juices that run out of the blackberries as they bake away. Load that yummy mixture into the middle of your pie crust, leaving about a 2-inch border around the whole thing, and then fold up the crust, pleating as you go. There’s no need to be fancy. What may be considered “messy” in some circumstances is simply known as “rustic” here.

To give my blackberry galette a bit of a special touch, I brushed the crust with some egg white and sprinkled it with a bit more of the coarse sugar and some sliced almonds. As it bakes away, the crust and the almonds will take on the most gorgeous golden color.

Then it’s time to eat.

How to Serve a Galette:

I like to slice up the galette and serve each piece with a scoop of ice cream on top. Recently, I’ve fallen in love with this new Low Cow Lite Ice Cream from Simple Truth that I found at my local Kroger store. It’s high in protein, low in calories and contains 75% less fat than regular ice cream. In my book, that basically means it’s health food and that I can have two slices of blackberry galette. Win-Win.

Can I make a Galette with Frozen Berries?

You can definitely swap in frozen berries for the fresh berries in this recipe. There’s no need to thaw the blackberries and no need to add any extra baking time.

I don’t like Blackberries. Can I use a different type of fruit?

Yes! Use what you like. This galette would also be amazing with any of the following fruits:

  • Peaches
  • Raspberries
  • Plums
  • Blueberries
  • Apples
  • Strawberries
  • Pears

You can also experiment with adding in different spices and flavorings. Try a combination of cardamon with peaches, cinnamon with apples, or drizzle that pear galette with some salted caramel.

    You make everything look so beautiful!!! I made a few similar blackberry galettes when we moved into our property last summer. Our blackberries are just now getting ripe! We’re surrounded by blackberry bushes. I CANNOT wait to dive in to this years crop. I’ll definitely be making loads of these in my very near future.
