Blueberry and Lemon Curd Galette with Vanilla Bean Whipped Cream

We were celebrating my friend’s birthday at our house and when I asked her what kind of cake she wanted she told me that she would prefer a galette for dessert.   I decided to make another one with lemon curd but this time I used blueberries that my neighbor Jack recently gave me.  I love galettes because they are extremely easy to make (especially if you cheat and use store bought pie crust) and they are beautiful and rustic. I served it with the vanilla bean whipped cream and it was wonderful!

Blueberry and Lemon Curd Galette with Vanilla Bean Whipped Cream:
Recipe and photos by For the Love of Cooking.net
 
  • 1 pie crust
  • Lemon curd
  • 2 cups of blueberries
  • 2 tbsp white sugar (more or less depending on the sweetness of the berries)
  • 2 tsp corn starch
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Raw sugar
  • 1 half a pint of whipping cream
  • Powdered sugar, to taste
  • 1 vanilla bean, seeds removed

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silpat mat.

Clean the blueberries then place into a bowl and sprinkle the sugar and corn starch on top. Gently stir the blueberries until the sugar and corn starch are evenly covering the berries.

Spread the lemon curd on the pie crust starting one inch from the edge. Pour the blueberries inside the pie crust on top of the lemon curd. Fold the edge of the dough over the blueberries and curd. Brush the dough with the beaten egg. Sprinkle the edges with the raw sugar.

Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes, or until golden brown.

While the galette is baking, make the whipped cream. Pour the whipping cream in a large bowl, add powdered sugar until the cream is at your desired degree of sweetness (I used 2 tablespoons). Gently remove the seeds from the vanilla pod and place into the whipping cream. Using a beater, mix on high until the whipping cream is thick and fluffy.

Remove the galette from the oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes before slicing. Serve with homemade whipped cream. Enjoy.

    Galettes are always so much fun. I love that they can get away with looking messy just by calling them rustic!

    I love galettes both sweet and savory. I make my crust though because I have not found a good quality commercial pie crust!

    I love galettes too and recently made a strawberry one as well as an apple. Your blueberry galette looks good and I like your addition of lemon curd.
