Mixed Berry Galette
- For the dough (or just buy frozen pie crust)
- 1 ⅓ cups flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 large egg
- Heavy cream, as needed
- 1 stick butter, cut into cubes
- 3 cups of mixed berries
- 1/2 cup of sugar, plus more for sprinkling
- pinch of salt
- juice of half a lemon and the zest
- 3 tablespoons of cornstarch
- 1 egg and a little milk
- sugar for sprinkling
In a food processor, pulse the flour, sugar and salt. Add the butter and pulse very briefly-you want pieces of butter the size of chickpeas. Don't be tempted to over do it.
Whisk the egg in a measuring cup and add enough cream so you have 1/3 of a cup of liquid.
Add it to the flour and butter mixture and pulse until it just comes together.
Pour the dough out onto a floured board and form into a disc. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to three days.
Roll out the dough into a 12-inch circle and refrigerate again while you make the filling.
In the meantime make the filling by combining all the filling ingredients in a bowl.
Place the berried in the middle and leave about 1 1/2 inches border. Fold up the edges of the dough over the filling, crimping as you go so it stays together. Brush the dough with an egg wash and sprinkle with more sugar.
Bake at 400 degrees until the center is bubbling- about 35-45 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
