Take the pressure out of pie making with this easy Raspberry Galette. This is a straightforward recipe that looks impressive but is super simple to prepare and bake. Simply fill a store bought or home made pie crust with raspberries before baking in a hot oven.
There is nothing more joyful than a slice of warm fruit pie served straight from the oven, topped with a scoop of your favorite vanilla ice-cream. But don't worry, you definitely don't have to be a pastry chef to make this raspberry pie.
My raspberry galette recipe is the perfect delicious dessert.
There is no need to line a tricky pie pan. Simply roll out the pastry, add the fruit filling, and fold the edges over.
By roasting the fruit in the oven, the raspberries take on an intense deep flavor and sweetness.

Raspberry Galette Ingredients
Find the full list and quantities in the recipe card below.
Pie Crust - For ease I use store-bought pie crust dough to make this pie. I recommend Pillsbury Pie Crusts. If in the UK I recommend using Jus-rol Ready Rolled Pastry Sheets, or you could substitute a ready baked pastry case.
If you prefer making your own pastry then this recipe shows you how to make Easy All-Butter Flaky Crust.
Raspberries - You can use either fresh raspberries or frozen raspberries, both will work!
Cornstarch - I use cornstarch to thicken the raspberry filling, which helps to stop the raspberries from being too watery and bleeding into the pastry. You can also use all-purpose flour, arrowroot powder, potato starch or rice flour.
Sugar - I've used granulated sugar, but you can use turbinado sugar (demerara sugar) or light brown sugar if you prefer.
How to Make Raspberry Galette - Step-By-Step
Find the full printable recipe card below.
Combine raspberries with the cornstarch and half the sugar in a large bowl.
Unroll or roll out your pastry with a rolling pin onto a lightly floured surface into a circle around 9 inches/23cm. Lay it on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Add the raspberry mixture to the center of the dough with a slotted spoon. Leave a 2-inch border around the edge of the dough.
Fold the galette dough up and over the raspberries around the edge to make a border. It doesn't need to be pretty - this is meant to be a rustic pie!
With a pastry brush, brush the pie edges with milk (or an egg wash) and shake the remaining sugar over the raspberries and pie crust.
Bake the galette for 35-45 minutes until crust is golden brown and fruit is tender. Remove from the oven and serve warm!
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between a pie and a galette?
A pie can be sweet or savory and comprises a pie crust with a filling. Pastry is used to line a pie dish which can have shallow or high sides. Pies can be open topped, or have a pastry top.
A galette is a rustic French dessert - a circle of pastry with a fresh fruit filling. The fruit is placed in the center of the pastry circle and the outer edges of the pastry are folded over the fruit before it is baked in the oven. There is less form to a galette than a pie or tart.
How can you fix cracked pie crust?
Firstly, if you have a little extra leftover dough, you can use that to patch up any cracks or holes in the pastry crust.
If you don't have extra dough, combine 2 parts of all purpose flour with 1 part butter (and ½ teaspoon of powdered sugar if making a sweet pie crust), and knead into a dough like consistency. You can then use this to patch up any cracks or holes in the pie crust.
How do you thicken fruit filling for pie?
My preferred thickener for fruit filling is cornstarch as you can use less of it than with other ingredients (plus it's also gluten free). However, you can also thicken pie filling with all-purpose flour, arrowroot powder, potato starch, tapioca starch, or rice flour.
Variations & Substitutions for Fruit Galettes
- Make a peach and raspberry galette by adding some sliced stone fruit.
- I've used shortcrust pastry, but you can easily make a raspberry galette with puff pastry.
- Did you know you can even make a galette with raspberry jam in a pinch? Just spread it across your pie crust and bake. Delicious!
- For a different twist add some grated dark chocolate to the top of the pie when baked.
- You can also make a savory galette with butternut squash or mushrooms.
- I've used milk to glaze the pie dough but you could also use an egg wash with a beaten egg for a richer glaze
Tips & Tricks For Making this Rustic Pie
- It's fine to use frozen fruit. But it's best to make sure it's thoroughly defrosted first and any juices are drained before you add it to the pie crust, otherwise you risk the pastry bottom becoming soggy.
- Fresh or frozen berries work best in this rustic fruit pie. I don't recommend using canned raspberries as they are full of water and can make the pastry bottom soggy.
- Make sure that the pastry is really golden brown before removing from the oven.
How To Serve Raspberry Pie?
My favorite way to serve this delicious pie is warm, straight from the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. You could also serve it with whipped cream - or if you are in the UK, custard!
How To Reheat Raspberry Galette?
Leftovers are really easy to reheat. You can either heat it up using the oven or microwave.
I prefer to use the oven. Just place the pie on a tray and heat in a warm oven for 15 minutes. If using the microwave watch the pie closely and don't overcook it as you don't want the pie crust becoming soggy.
How to Freeze Raspberry Galette?
To freeze, place in the raspberry pie in an airtight container and store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
When ready to enjoy, you can heat the pie up in the oven, straight from frozen. Preheat the oven to 400ºF/200ºC and let the pie cook until the pastry and fruit is hot all the way through.
