This is an recipe that I shared three years as a contributor to another blog. However, I just realized that blog is gone, so I wanted to share it here as this is one of my favorite recipes. I often make this dessert when friends or family come over. So here it is….
I know what you’re thinking. Another berry dessert, really? What the heck else can this chick make with berries? I know…I have a problem with berries. You should see all the recipes I whip up with peaches, nectarines, and apricots. I could probably write an entire cookbook with just those three fruits.
But, you won’t believe this one. It’s simply amazing! I just want to kiss this photo. I love the imagery with the pretty pink berry juice dripping out. It’s just telling you to pick up a slice and take a bite. Yum!
A galette is a rustic tart that you just free form on a cookie sheet. It’s just so effortless and easy to make. And, this one has a layer of cream cheese!! It’s like the ultimate in pie laziness. I love that I can just cut it into slices like a pizza and serve.
- 1 refrigerated pie crust
- 4 oz cream cheese, softened
- 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
- 1/2 pint blackberries
- 1/2 pint raspberries
- 4-5 strawberries, quartered
- 4 tablespoons of sugar
- 3 tablespoons corn starch
- 1 tablespoon raw sugar
- dash of cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- 1 egg
- Preheat oven to 425 F degrees.
- On parchment paper on a cookie sheet, lay out the pie crust.
- Combine the softened cream cheese and the powdered sugar and mix until well combined.
- Spread the cream cheese mixture over the center of the pie crust. Make sure to leave a ring of pie crust about 4 inches to fold over.
- Combine berries, sugar, corn starch, cinnamon, and salt. Mix gently.
- Pour the berry mixture on top of the cream cheese mixture.
- Fold the edges of the pie crust over leaving some of the berry mixture exposed.
- Beat one egg.
- Brush the edges of the pie crust with egg wash.
- Sprinkle with raw sugar.
- Bake for 20 minutes or until golden. Remove and let cool.

This is so simple, you can whip it up for Easter in no time at all, and people will rave about it!
