Oh, how I’ve missed summer fruits and vegetables. They are my favorite part of the summer. Just walking into the produce department makes me happy and the kids are loving it all too. They give lots of input — they devour pretty much any fruit, but watermelon and strawberries are a top pick.
A lot of the summer fruits we buy is for everyday snacking, but another great thing about the summer is that fruit makes a regular appearance during our meals. And, let’s not forget desserts. Our entire family is crazy for fruit desserts and these Mini Summer Berry Galettes have become the newest hit in our house.
Of course, my kids think these galettes are the fanciest thing ever. The truth is that while they look impressive, and taste amazing, they are incredibly simple to make. And they are like pie, but easier. And pie is good, don’t you agree?
While shopping at Walmart this week, I picked up everything I needed to make up a batch of these Mini Summer Berry Galettes. I found a great price on some beautiful strawberries in the Walmart Produce department, so I picked up 1 pound for the galettes, but 2 extras for our smoothies.
The galettes also needs an 11 ounce package of blueberries — these are so good that I had to fight myself to stop snacking on them and save them for the recipe!
While I was shopping, I noticed a sign hanging above the strawberries and the blueberries that I haven’t noticed before. It said that Walmart Produce has a 100% money back guarantee. If you don’t love their produce, bring back your receipt and you’ll get a full refund. I was very happy with my summer fruit purchases, but it’s reassuring to know that there won’t be questions asked if I did have an issue.
To make the galettes, you’ll cut the strawberries into small pieces and toss them together with the blueberries. Aren’t these colors beautiful? The fruit is tossed together with some sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, and lemon zest, which smells AMAZING!
While you can certainly use homemade pie crust if you prefer, I decided to keep it easier by using premade refrigerated pie crust. Roll one of the crusts out and use an upside down bowl to cut out circles of crust, just like you would with a cookie cutter.
The bowl I used gives a pie crust with a 4 1/2″ diameter and I was able to get 4 mini crusts out of each pie crust.
On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, you can start assembling the galettes. It’s a simple as taking one pie crust and placing about 1/4 cup of the fruit mixture in the middle, leaving the edges empty. Be sure to not scoop any of the excess liquid that might form with the fruit.
Bring up the edges, overlapping them as necessary. You’ll want to press the overlapping areas together a bit so that they will hold.
After you’ve filled all of your pie crusts, brush them with the egg wash and sprinkle with sugar. Then they go into the oven until the crust is baked and a nice golden brown.
These Mini Summer Berry Galettes are small enough that you could eat them by hand, but we generally place them on a plate.
To make them even more special and even yummier, top them with a whipped cream or, better yet, a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
