Gluten Free Triple Berry Galette

This easy Gluten Free Triple Berry Galette is bursting with berries.  It is also dairy free, Vegan, egg free, soy free, and peanut free/ tree nut free.
I think spring might finally be here.  This Gluten Free Triple Berry Galette will have you thinking ahead towards summer.  Berries are just one of those things that are great alone, but in a pie. is. just. GOOD.  Beautiful and vibrant in color, kids love them.

Have you tried making a rustic galette?  Or really I should be asking, have you tried making a gluten free galette?

Don't be scared.  I'll hold your hand and walk you through this simple version of a pie.

First, don't worry about messing this up. There will be cracks, not going to lie, but it will be ok.  Second, it's supposed to be rustic or 'not perfect'.  : )

Can you handle those?

Ok.  Good.  Let's first talk about gluten free flours.

I'll be the first to admit, I don't like when recipes just state use a gluten free all purpose flour.  You and I both know this could mean the difference between fabulous or fail.

I make my own blends and always I try to be specific as to which one I use.  For this, Millet flour is key.  Sorghum would be another great flour to use.   I used my whole grain mixture.  (We have banned sorghum since Mr. N cannot tolerated it.)  If you don't have access to these flours, the results WILL be different.  It will probably be gummy and not have the best finished texture.  
Could you use an off the shelf all purpose flour?

Of course.  But it will be different.

Either way, it's getting the courage to fold a gluten free dough, right?   I love this dough because it can be used for a savory or sweet pie.  I've made a dinner and dessert at the same time using just one dough.   My Zucchini Galette and Apple Galette were created together. Love a 2 for one deal don't you?

I hope you enjoy this Gluten Free Triple Berry Galette.  I'm still a little sick, so the extra antioxidants found in the berries are a great boost to immunity.  That and of course, pie is good anytime. : )
