Orange Blossom Ricotta Berry Galette
If you live in the Midwest then you have been having wild storms like we have. It’s been dark, stormy, and the perfect weather to stay in and eat comforting desserts like this berry galette. There is something about pies that just makes me feel so cozy and happy. And fruit galettes, being open faced pies, have a rustic appearance that adds so much vibrance to any dessert table.
This orange blossom ricotta berry galette is so easy and quick to put together. It takes only minutes of prep time and about 35 minutes of baking.
The sour cream crust adds even more richness and creaminess to this berries and cream galette. I always double the pie crust recipe and stash one in the freezer for easy future galette bakes.
The first layer of the galette filling is simply whipped ricotta with a touch of honey and orange blossom water. It’s spread on and then topped with sugar and lemon macerated blueberries and blackberries.
This berry galette is stunning, bright, and so delicious! It truly showcases berries and their natural beauty and flavor.
Tips for making galettes
- Use cold ingredients in your pie crust.
- Do not overwork your pie dough. Remove it from the food processor just before it balls up. Finish shaping with your hands.
- Be sure to chill your dough at least an hour. Then allow it to rest for about 5 minutes before rolling out.
- Don’t worry about perfectly rolling out the dough! This is a rustic bake and the edges of the dough will be folded over.
- Whip your ricotta. This is a step that I never skip. It will yield a creamier, softer, and smooth texture.
- Always use an egg wash or cream to brush over the raw dough before baking for that golden sheen.
- Raw Sugar on the border creates a crunchy, sweet touch that is unbeatable!
