This recipe is so simple to make and is always a big hit with my kids and dinner guests. I found some beautiful organic blackberries on sale recently and couldn’t resist buying them. I used a store bought pie crust because it is a huge time saver for me. The kids and I made this galette for friends who were coming over for dinner, needless to say, it disappeared quickly.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silpat mat.
Clean the blackberries then place into a bowl and sprinkle the sugar and corn starch on top. Gently stir the blackberries until the sugar and corn starch are evenly covering 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. Sprinkle the edges with the raw sugar. Bake in the oven for 40-45 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.
