A freeform Pineapple Blueberry Basil Galette using purchased pie crust.
Prep Time 15minutes
Cook Time 35minutes
Total Time 50minutes
1refrigerated pie crust(recommend: Pillsbury brand)
1cupblueberriesabout 6 oz.
½a whole pineapple
1tablespoonfinely chopped fresh basil
1tablespoonplus 1 tsp Turbinado sugar(regular sugar works fine, too)
Heat a gas or charcoal grill so that the temperature is maintaining a steady 375°. If your grill doesn’t have a thermometer, aim for a medium-hot heat.
Remove the pie crust from the refrigerator and allow it to come to room temperature as instructed on the package.
Meanwhile, prepare the fruit for the recipe. Wash the blueberries and let drain on a paper towel. Cut the pineapple into bite-sized pieces. In a medium bowl, combine the prepared blueberries and pineapple with the basil, flour, and one tablespoon of the sugar. Toss everything together so that the fruit is well coated with the flour and sugar.
Unroll the pie crust onto a pan. Brush the surface of the pie crust with half of the melted apple jelly.
Mound the pineapple-blueberry-basil filling in the center of the crust leaving a 2” margin all around. Bring the crust up over the filling creating a freeform, rustic edge.
Beat the egg in a small bowl. Brush all the exposed crust with the beaten egg. Sprinkle the remaining sugar on the egg-washed pie crust.
Place the pan on the indirect heat side of your grill. Close the grill cover and cook for 30-35 minutes or until the crust is nicely browned and the filling is bubbly.
Remove and let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Just before serving, brush the top of the fruit with the remaining melted apple jelly.
To make preparation easy, purchase a fresh cut pre-prepped pineapple from the produce section of your grocery store.Using Turbinado sugar in this recipe isn’t essential. If you don’t have it on hand, regular white sugar works just fine.Don’t let the pie crust get too warm while you work or it can become difficult to handle. If it seems to be getting too soft, just put it in the refrigerator for a few minutes and it will be just fine!
