Ingredients for the Best Blueberry Galette

Here are my tips for the main ingredients you’ll need to make this easy lemon blueberry pie at home. Find the full list of ingredients in the recipe card below.

  • Blueberries – fresh berries will work best for this recipe. If you have frozen berries, allow them to thaw in the refrigerator overnight before using.
  • Lemon – you’ll need the lemon zest and the lemon juice.
  • Sugar
  • Butter – unsalted butter works best for making the pie crust.
  • Flour – adding flour to the blueberry filling helps thicken the berry juices as the pie bakes.
  • Vanilla Ice Cream – for serving on the side!

How to Make Pie Crust

This delicious blueberry pie is made with a buttery pie crust! I always use my ‘All-Butter Pie Crust Recipe’. You can also use store-bought, premade pie crust if you’re in a pinch for time!

  1. Cube the butter into small pieces and place it in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  2. Drop the cold butter into a food processor, along with the flour and salt. Pulse the flour and butter together until fine crumbles form.
  3. Add the cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time, pulsing after each addition until a dough ball forms.
  4. Transfer the dough onto a sheet of plastic wrap. Gently shape into a disk, wrap very well, and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  5. The pie crust can be prepared ahead of time, too.

Preparing the Blueberry Filling

With your pie crust chilling in the refrigerator, it’s time to prepare the filling!

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, salt, vanilla extract, flour, and cornstarch.
  2. Add the zest of 2 large lemons and squeeze in about 3 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice.
  3. Using a spatula, toss all the ingredients together, until the berries are well coated.

How to Make Lemon Blueberry Galette

Here’s how to put together the blueberry pie!

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Remove the pie crust dough from the refrigerator and unwrap it. Minimize handling the dough with your hands, so the butter doesn’t melt.
  2. I recommend assembling the pie directly on a silicon mat for easier handling and transferring. Place the dough onto a mat, then roll out into a large circle, approximately 12-inch across.
  3. Place the prepared blueberry filling into the center of the dough. Go around the edges of the dough and gently lift the edges of the crust up and over the filling, pleating and folding it towards the center.
  4. Beat the egg in a measuring cup or bowl, then use a pastry brush to brush the egg over the crust. If desired, sprinkle some large, granulated sugar around the edges for garnish.

Baking Instructions for Galette

Transfer the silicon mat onto a large baking sheet. Bake the blueberry galette at 375°F for 35 to 40 minutes, until the pie crust is golden brown.

Remove the galette from the oven and allow it to cool for at least 20 to 30 minutes prior to serving as the filling will be super-hot!

Serving Suggestions for Galette

I love to serve this blueberry galette while it’s still warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side! You can also enjoy it with a bit of whipped cream.

For even more lemon flavor, try zesting a lemon directly over each serving for that fragrant lemon oil scent!

Make-Ahead Instructions for Galette

This blueberry lemon dessert is great for making ahead of time! Simply shape the galette, place it onto a baking sheet, and loosely cover it with plastic wrap.

Place the galette into the refrigerator to chill until you’re ready to bake it! Bake using the same instructions.
