Blackberries are stinkin’ awesome. In this dessert, they are even awesomer. And, yeah. Today ‘awesomer’ is a word. Because, thing is, there’s not a lot of words that describe a sugar-sparkled pie crust wrapped around fresh, gorgeous blackberries.
So, let’s instead switch to numbers. Three…all the prep time you need to make this easy galette (slab pie). Awesome. Five…all the ingredients you need. Awesome. Seven…the number of scoops of ice cream you’ll want to eat on top of piping hot pieces of your awesome blackberry pie. Awesomer.
Blackberry Slab Pie
- 3 cups fresh blackberries, blueberries, or a mixture of both
- 1 prepared round of pie dough
- 1 egg white
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 cup sparkling sugar
Place the round of pie dough on a parchment lined baking sheet. Wash and dry the berries, then place them in a heap right in the center of your pie dough. Carefully fold the edges of the pie dough around the berries, pinching it together to keep the edges in place. Melt the butter and drizzle half of it over the berries. Whisk the egg white into the remaining bit of butter. With a basting brush, spread the butter/egg mixture all over the edges of the pie crust, then sprinkle with sparkling sugar.
Bake in an oven preheated to 425 degrees for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve piping hot with giant scoops of vanilla ice cream.
