Make this blueberry and blackberry galette for your friends and family - they will love you for it. It's the perfect combination of summer berries in a buttery, flaky crust.
If you love fruit-forward desserts, you are going to love this! I'll show you how to make an easy homemade pie dough, but if you'd like to save time, you can use a storebought one.
This fruity galette is a delicious and relatively easy dessert to make. It serves at least 6 people and topped with a scoop of ice cream it's a standout dessert for a dinner party or special meal.
Galettes have all the flavor of a traditional pie but are much more forgiving to make. You don't have to be as finicky with the dough and fit it into a pie plate - it's much more free form!
Even though this recipe takes two and a half hours to make, it isn't all hands-on time. In fact, most of it is spent on chilling the dough and baking the galette.
- Frozen or Fresh Blueberries
- Frozen or Fresh Blackberries
- All Purpose Flour
- Granulated Sugar
- Chilled Butter
- Ice Water
- Lemon Juice
Optional - top the galette with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, lemon zest, or thinly sliced mint leaves.
Combine the flour, salt, and sugar in a food processor. Pulse to combine.
Add the butter and pulse till it is in pea-sized chunks.
Add the water gradually and pulse to combine, until the dough sticks together and forms a ball.
Cover the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour. (Can be kept up to two days).
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 C).
Combine the blueberries, blackberries, sugar, corn starch, and lemon juice in a large bowl.
Roll the dough on a lightly floured surface into a 12-inch circle, to about ¼ inch thickness.
Place the dough on a parchment paper lined rimmed baking sheet.
Spread the blackberry blueberry filling across the dough and leave a 1 ½ gap around the edges.
Fold the dough up to create a lip around the galette.
Bake for 50 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
Let cool for 10 minutes before cutting and serving.

Tips for Making this Recipe
Preparation Tips - Making the dough in a food processor is super quick, but be careful not to overwork it and blend it for long periods of time. Use the pulse button if that's an option on your machine.
Seasonal Ingredients - You can use fresh or frozen berries for this recipe. Blackberries and blueberries are in season from May through September. If you are making this out of season, I'd recommend using frozen berries.
Alternative Tools - If you don't have a food processor, there are notes in the recipe card for making it with a pastry cutter.
