Blueberry lavender galette

This is a sponsored post by Challenge butter, but the text and opinions are all mine. Thank you for supporting brands that make Kylee's Kitchen possible! 

There are few things more enjoyable than fresh-baked pie with ripe summer produce. But pies can be fickle and time-consuming. Fortunately, we live in a world where galettes exist.

A galette is pie’s more easygoing cousin. No pie plate. No crimping. No fuss. If it looks imperfect, then you did it correctly. It is supposed to be rustic. And that’s why it’s the perfect base for summer fruit.

You can make pie dough for a galette, or you can use store-bought pie dough, puff pastry, phyllo dough… it’s kind of like a “choose your own adventure” book.

Some important tips to remember when making a galette…
If you’re making your own pie crust, you need to make a mealy pie crust. This means the butter pieces in the dough are the size of peas. Mealy pie dough is best for fruit pies because it is good at repelling moisture from liquid fillings.

To prevent a soggy bottom, I recommend adding a little cornstarch to your fruit filling; macerating the fruit and then draining the juices; and creating a barrier between the dough and the filling. The barrier can be anything your heart desires—almond paste, fruit preserves, cookie crumbs, etc. I use goat cheese as the barrier in this recipe.

Another important tip: roll the galette dough out to 1/8-inch thick. If it’s too thick, the crust will be gummy and chewy, not flaky.

It’s important to use good quality butter in your recipe because it makes a tremendous difference in your final product. I use Challenge European Style Butter when I make pie dough. It’s churned slower and longer, in the tradition of fine European butters, to produce a more flavorful butter with less moisture and higher butterfat.

  1. I had so many negative items on my credit which deprived me from purchasing an apartment for my family, and our current apartment was becoming too small for the increasing family, but all my loan applications fell through due to low credit score. I was searching for ways to fix my credit when I came across a post about the exploits of 760Plus Credit Score, I contacted them after careful deliberation with my family. They helped me increase my credit score to 810 excellent score and deleted all the negative items on my credit report. I just moved into my new apartment with my family and I have no regrets working with 760. You can reach them via email:
