It started with Moon Camp. What’s moon camp you ask? Well, in this case, it’s a group of photography friends, encamped in my up north back yard and spare bedrooms.

Yes, up north–the kind of place that gets really dark and lets you photograph the milky way.  It’s a story worthy of its own tale, but that will have to wait.

To add to the fun, one of the other moon-campers is a foodie like me. This meant that had to do some baking the day prior. Never hurts to have extra sugar around cold campers!A free form pie that is super easy and tasty, blueberry galette has to be on your summer menu! Perfect for brunch or dessert or just snacking!

This blueberry galette is one of the items we baked. If you’re not familiar with galettes, Fine Cooking says that,“ the term galette is used primarily to refer to rather rustic, free-form tarts-made with a single crust of pastry or bread dough, like a pizza. If the filling is very moist, the sides of a galette may be folded up and over to contain the juices.“

Breakfast!

They are seriously popular because they are so easy to make!  Here’s how:

How to Make a Blueberry Galette

Basically, you start with a single pie crust (yours or a packaged crust–I told you this was easy),

Prepare filling and crust

Pile it up with the filling of your choice, then fold and pinch the sides

Pinch sides

Brush with egg wash(egg beaten with water) for a nice browned  crust,

sprinkle with coarse sugar for a pretty finish (if making a sweet galette–they can be savory too)

And bake!A free form pie that is super easy and tasty, blueberry galette has to be on your summer menu! Perfect for brunch or dessert or just snacking!

Enjoy!

Of course everyone had so much trouble saying Blueberry Galette (with much associated giggling) that I eventually spelled it out phonetically.

Other than the camp table photo, we didn’t get any shots of the original galette and I had to remake it for the post (poor me 🙂 ).  I blame it on late baking and milky way shooting that encourage dropping into bed with things undone.

And yes, we were soundly admonished by our instructor for missing the shots.

      I bought way too many berries for freezing last year Sherry! But when I started making this, I was happy I had so many!
