Sometimes you need something sweet, just for you…to share with no one else.
Did I mention it was also dairy free and vegan? That’s right so this is a rather all-inclusive pastry calling your name!
What You Need To Make The Gluten Free Raspberry Galette
All purpose gluten free flour (I used the King Arthur brand)
Egg (sub coconut cream for vegan)
Your favorite berries
How To Make The Ideal Gluten Free Galette Crust
The key to making this dough is and getting a similar result to mine is using King Arthur’s all purpose flour (the same brand I used) as not all gluten free flours are created equally.
When it comes to forming the crust and rolling it out remember it doesn’t have to be perfect. Start by forming a dough ball in your hands and sprinkling flour on a pastry matt (or other flat surface) and a bit on the the rolling pin. Then, roll out the dough ball into a circle by using your rolling pin as a guide to create an even circle that has the same thickness throughout. Remember, it doesn’t have to be perfect. I recommend aiming for a 1/4 inch thickness (or slightly above that). The diameter should be 7-8 inches.
Once the dough is rolled into a circle, wrap it with plastic wrap and store in the fridge for at least 45 minutes.
It may seem like it’s never ending but it well worth it as the pastry dough will yield a better texture.
Creating The Filling and Folds
When it comes to the berries all your going to do is combine all the filling ingredients together in a small bowl and transfer them on top of the pastry crust, leaving a 1 1/2 -2 inch crust border, ensuring there is enough room for the folds.
For the folds, start folding it in at an angel. The key is to go in the same direction and fold over the same section of dough. You can choose larger or small sections, it doesn’t have to be perfect.
A Galette is simple, lets keep it that way! As much as we would like to have the perfect folds they don’t have to be perfect. The main reason we fold the dough is to keep the berry filling inside the pastry. So, as long as it keeps the berries from falling outside of the pastry the folds are doing their job. And even if they bleed over a little bit, it doesn’t affect the taste in the slightest so don’t sweat it!
Before placing this Gluten Free Galette in the oven brush the outside with egg wash or coconut cream (if subbing for vegan) and sprinkle turbinado sugar on the top of the outer crust (the folds). This will add a great texture and make the edges nice and brown.
Of course, no galette would be complete without ice cream! I recommend adding your favorite vanilla ice cream as it brings the berries and crust together perfectly.

The simplest single serve sweet Gluten Free and Vegan Galette.
For the crust
2 TBSPs cubed cold vegan butter
1/4 cup all purpose gluten free flour (I used the King Arthur brand)
1 TBSP almond
1/2 Tbsp cane sugar
1 TBSP cold water
1 egg (for egg wash) (sub coconut cream for vegan)
2 Tsp Turbinado sugar
1/2 cup berries of choice
3/4 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp cane sugar
1/2 tsp corn starch
dash of vanilla
Combine all of the ingredients, except for the cold water in a food processor and blend.
Add the cold water to the food processor and stop once a dough forms. Once done, take out and form into a ball.
Sprinkle flour on a pastry mat and a bit on the rolling pin and the top of the pastry dough. Roll out to 1/4 inch thickness and about a 7-8 inch diameter. We want to make sure there is 1 1/2-2 inches of dough left to create folds for the berries to be covered. If it breaks that is okay, simply piece it back together using the dough.
Store in the fridge for at least 45 minutes.
While the dough is setting in the fridge, let’s prepare the filling and start the oven!
Set the oven to 400 degrees.
Start by washing your favorite fresh berries and adding them into a small bowl.
Add the remaining ingredients for the filling and combine thoroughly until no corn starch is visible on the berries. Feel free to add more or less sugar as you please based on the sweetness of your berries.
Once complete, set aside.
Take the dough out of the fridge and add the filling into the center of the dough, leaving room for the dough to fold over the galette. You can leave as little or as much room as you would like based on your preference.
When you are done adding the berries fold the dough over starting in the center of the dough and start folding it in at an angel. The key is to go in the same direction and fold over the same section of dough. You can choose larger or small sections, it doesn’t have to be perfect.
When you are done folding the dough over crack an egg in a small bowl and mix with a fork. Brush the egg wash on the folds of the galette and sprinkle the turbinado sugar on top of it. This will add a great brown to the color and crunch to the texture as well as a hint of sweetness.
Bake for 25-27 minutes.
Let cool for 12-15 minutes and top with your favorite vanilla ice cream.
You may use oat flour in place of almond flour, but I only recommend this if you are allergic to nuts as you will have to alter the water content to slightly less than 1 TBSP. I recommend adding in the water slowly until the dough texture is achieved.
I used King Arthur’s all purpose flour. If you use a different brand I cannot guarantee the texture will be the same as all gluten free all purpose flours are created differently. In the past I have used Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 all purpose flour and yielded a similar result.
