Over the last couple of months, these tasty looking rustic pies have been popping up everywhere I look- on blogs, magazines and all over Pinterest. I have always liked the look of these pies and meant to try making them many times and finally took the plunge. The result was so good and much easier than a regular pie.
Here's how you do it!
|Next, crack an egg into a 1 cup measuring cup...|
|And add 1 TBSP of vinegar and fill the rest with ice cold water.|
|Add the wet to the dry just a little at a time until you have dough. I use my hands for this as I have found it is the easiest way.|
|Shape into 3 medium sized balls and put in the fridge to chill. You can also freeze them. 1 1/2 balls will make a traditional pie, but for the galette, I used 1 ball.|
|Take your pastry and roll out. I did mine on parchment because I planned to bake the pie on it.|
|Roll it out to about 1/4 in thickness- a rustic looking circle is fine.|
|Dump your fruit into the center of the pastry.|
|Carefully fold over the pastry around the edges of the fruit. It may rip, but you can patch it up with extra pieces or pinch it together where needed.|
|Lastly, brush it with egg and sprinkle with sugar. The egg helps seal up those places that ripped! It is supposed to look rustic and un-perfect!|
|Bake at 350 for 35-40 mins until browned and fruit is bubbly. Let it sit for about an hour before cutting so the fruit doesn't run out everywhere.|
|This was TO DIE FOR!|
