Amazing flavors and textures combine in this juicy & decadent gluten-free blackberry galette with a crispy polenta rustic pie crust. This rustic gluten-free blackberry pie is easy, healthy, delicious, gluten-free with a dairy-free option, too!
This beautiful galette is hands down one of the tastiest things I've ever made! The first bite, and I was sold.
I'm not sure if it's the perfect tart sweetness and juiciness of the blackberries touched by a kiss of cinnamon, or the amazingly divine crispy polenta crust that adds a wealth of flavor & texture to an already delicious pie filling. . .
But, one thing's for certain -- it's ridiculously tasty!
One of the things I liked most about this galette is how well the pie crust dough held together, rolled out, and certainly didn't act or taste as if it was missing gluten. What a treat!
Whether for yourself, your family, or for entertaining guests -- have no doubt that this wonderful galette will both impress and please the senses!

Tips for Making Rustic Gluten-Free Blackberry Pie
- I like to use this polenta for this particular pie crust, but any gluten-free cornmeal will do.
- Any gluten-free all purpose flour blend will work, either with or without xanthan gum.
- For a dairy-free version, the butter can be replaced with unrefined coconut oil.
- Any granulated sweetener can replace the coconut sugar, if need be.
- For a sugar-free / no sugar added version, I recommend this sugar-free sweetener.
- In a pinch, lemon juice can be replaced with apple cider vinegar, or be omitted.
- Do not skip the refrigeration step, this step ensures an easily rolled out crust with just the right texture upon baking.
- This delicious gluten-free galette keeps well lightly covered at room temperature for up to 36 hours or stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
