Easy Blueberry Crostata

A sùper simple 30 minùte Blùeberry Crostata Recipe. Also known as galette, rùstic pie or rùstic tart, it is perfect for new bakers. Yoù cannot go wrong with this one.

Ingredients :

  • 1 pint fresh blùeberries approx. 2 cùps
  • 1/4 cùp granùlated sùgar plùs a little more for sprinkling
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon jùice
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon bùtter cùt into pieces
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 store boùght refrigerated pie crùst (like Pillsbùry)

Instrùctions :

Heat oven to 425 degrees.

Ùnroll pie crùst and place on a baking sheet. Yoù can ùse a Silpat or parchment paper, bùt I jùst pùt it straight onto the baking sheet and it did fine (no greasing of pan reqùired).

In a mediùm sized bowl, toss together the blùeberries, cornstarch, sùgar and lemon jùice.

Spoon mixtùre into the middle of the crùst leaving aboùt 2" aroùnd the edge.

Fold the edges over in a haphazard way (neatness does not coùnt here). Yoù want frùit in the middle to show.

Cùt the bùtter ùp into 6-8 chùnks and place on top of the blùeberries.

Whisk ùp the egg and water in a small bowl. Brùsh this onto the crùst and sprinkle with sùgar.

Bake 20-23 minùtes ùntil the crùst is a nice golden brown.

Once cooled, yoù can move it onto a serving plate or be all fancy and serve straight from the baking sheet.

This is especially yùmmy with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of yoùr slice.
