Tasty Easy Berry Galette made with raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries.

It is finally getting to be that time of year when I can walk my dogs without a sweatshirt or two. Yes, the thermometer is finally inking out of the 70s and that means cold drinks and ice cream without a hot chocolate chaser.

Warmer weather also has me eating way more fruits than I do all winter. And, what better way than to enjoy all the fruits than have them enrobed in warm, crispy dough – right?!

I know, I know. That’s not the best reasoning, but seeing the Egyptians have been doing it since around 6000 BC, who am I to argue with fruit encased in dough, huh?

On our recent once-weekly trip to the grocery store, I got a tad bit overzealous when I came across fresh berries in the produce section. I brought home a bunch and after a few days, I realized that I had to use them up quickly before they spoiled.

Making a 3 Ingredient Rustic Tart Shell

I made some of these Lemon Blueberry Muffins Tops, some of this Raspberry Chipotle Chicken Curry and even a batch of these Blackberry Meringue Cookies, and I still had a bit more left. So, I did what I thought best and mixed up all those remaining raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries together with some cinnamon and brown sugar and enveloped them in some dough in this Easy Berry Galette.

What is a galette?

A galette consists of a rolled-out piece of dough which is then topped up with fruit in the center. The edges of the dough are folded over and brushed with an egg wash before baking.

Berry filling For 3 Ingredient Rustic Tart Galette

I love making galettes as they are easy and thrive on imperfection.

Dough is rolled out, fruit is placed in the center of it, and the edges are folded over. With a galette, I do not worry about leaked juices or perfectly folded the dough. What pops out of the oven is a rustic, rich, and delectable dessert that is fit for any occasion.

While I use vegan butter in most dough I use when making a galette, this time I decided to change things around and give this galette a bit of a healthyISH spin. I had some Georgia Grinders Maple Caramel Almond Butter on hand, I decided to use it along with some water and AP flour to make the dough.

After a few snafus while trying to balance out the water to almond butter to flour ratio, I ended up with what you see here.

This easy 3-ingredient Almond Butter galette crust was so crispy and so tasty with underlying tones of maple and caramel in it. It cradled and balanced out the berries so well.

Getting ready to bake Berry Galette

A few tips when filling a galette:

I cooled this easy berry galette down before cutting into it and the berry liquids were not as runny. You can avoid having a too fruit-juicy galette by using only blueberries. They are naturally high in pectin which helps a blueberry filling set well. With this said, if you use strawberries, then dust them with some cornstarch and make sure to sprinkle a bit of breadcrumbs on the rolled out galette dough before adding in the fruit filling.

Easy Berry Galette aka Rustic Tart

Easy Berry Galette

Yield: 4 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 1 minute
Total Time: 11 minutes

This Easy Berry Galette is a rustic, rich, and delectable dessert that thrives on imperfection. With a 3-ingredient crisp crust with undertones of maple and caramel, this berry tart is ideal for any occasion.

Ingredients

For the crust

  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup almond butter (I used Georgia Grinders Maple Caramel Almond Butter)
  • 4 tbsp cold water
  • Pinch of salt

For the Berry Filling:

  • 1/2 cup raspberries
  • 1/2 cup blackberries
  • 1/2 cup raspberries
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Additional Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp coarse sugar to dust galette
  • 1 beaten egg for egg wash

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Add the AP flour, almond butter, salt, and cold water to a bowl and mix well with a spoon. When ingredients are well incorporated, using your hands, kneed dough a couple more minutes.
  3. Then place dough on a lightly floured silpat placed on a baking tray (I simply fill it and bake it on this same tray so the dough does not break) and roll it out using a rolling pin until it's about 1/10th of an inch or so and set aside.
  4. Make the filling by placing all the berries, the cinnamon, and the brown sugar in a bowl and mix well.
  5. Then, spoon berry filling onto the galette dough and spread it out to about an inch away from the edges. Fold over the edges. Brush egg wash over the folded edges, sprinkle a bit of the coarse sugar on the edges and place the baking tray with berry galette in a 375 degree oven for 30-35 minutes or until galette is golden.
  6. Remove the galette from the oven and let it sit about 15-20 minutes.
  7. Enjoy with non dairy shipped topping or ice cream!

Notes

You can avoid having a too fruit-juicy galette by using only blueberries. They are naturally high in pectin which helps a blueberry filling set well.

With this said, if you use strawberries, then dust them with some cornstarch and make sure to sprinkle a bit of breadcrumbs on the rolled out galette dough before adding in the fruit filling.

Wait. Temperatures inking OUT of the 70s!? We're just hoping for temperatures to ink into the 70s. Haha! (It was 31°F at 2am last night. I know. I was out with the puppies.) But warmer weather is coming, and I am SO excited about this. Fresh berry season is coming, and this galette sounds awesome. Plus, the caramel maple almond butter? Uh, yes please. But a perfect flavor combination for summer berry desserts!
