Blackberry Galette

During my many hours of surfing the web looking for recipes to blog about, I stumbled upon this blog. Under her dessert tag, she has a ton of recipes for galettes. I had never heard of them but they looked delicious and simple. I looked up galette on Wiki and found that it's a French term to designate various types of flat, round or freeform crusty cakes and pastries. It looked so rustic and the recipe looked so simple, I couldn't resist putting the ingredients on our grocery list! Check out her blog for more galette recipes and delicious pictures!

1 pie crust
2 cups of blackberries (frozen or fresh)
2 tbsp white sugar
2 tsp corn starch
1 egg beaten
Raw sugar (or more white sugar if raw is not available)

Preheat the oven to 350ยบ. Line a baking sheet with a silpat mat, if available.

Clean the blackberries then place into a bowl and sprinkle the sugar and cornstarch on top. Gently stir the berries until the sugar and corn starch evenly cover the berries.

Pour the blackberries inside the pie crust starting one inch from the edge. Fold the edge of the dough over the blackberries. Brush the dough with the beaten egg and sprinkle the edges with raw sugar. Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown.
