Get Off Your Rumpus and Vote Strawberry Pie

Strawberry galette with FDR Quote

“Nobody will ever deprive the American people the right to vote, except the American people themselves, and the only way to do that, is by not voting.”

-Franklin D Roosevelt

That’s how the quote really goes, but I had to modify it because two sets of toddler sized hands found the pile of letters I baked and letters started disappearing…

This is a public service announcement saying, don’t forget to vote!  I typically like to stay quiet in all things political, but this is at least one thing I feel comfortable in sharing.  You aren’t allowed to complain about any results, unless you actually took the time to register to vote, and voted!  Now get out there!

Strawberry galette with FDR Quote

This is technically a galette, but calling it a pie just sounded better.  So call me a liar!  You take your favorite pie dough recipe, roll it out, spread a lovely concoction crafted out of cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice and top it with blueberries or sliced strawberries, and in the oven it goes.  Top it off with some whipped cream, or pie dough letters to add an extra element!

  • Method: Baking
  • Cuisine: Galette


Sheet pan strawberry galette that I confusingly call a pie!  Lemon cream cheese topped with strawberries and blueberries.


  • 1 batch of your favorite pie dough, enough that would typically be for two pie bases.
  • 1 lb blueberries or strawberries(sliced)
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 fresh lemon
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 4 tsp sugar
  • 2 large eggs, separated


For the cream cheese filling:

  1. In a medium bowl, mix the softened cream cheese on medium high speed with sugar to make fluffy, about two minutes, then add 2 egg yolks mixing until fully combine, followed by 1 TBS of lemon juice. Save the egg white to brush over the crust just before baking

For the berries:

  1. In a separate bowl combine the blueberries, sugar, cornstarch, 1/2 tsp of zest and 1 Tbsp of juice from the lemon. Stir them together well and set the mixture aside.


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees, and line a sheet pan with parchment paper, set aside.
  2. Roll out the pie dough on a lightly floured surface and lay over the sheet pan.
  3. Spread cream cheese mixture over the pie dough, leaving a two inch border around the entire edge.
  4. Top the cream cheese with sliced strawberries, or whole blueberries.
  5. Fold the two in boarder of crust over the edge of the berries to create the galette edge.
  6. Whisk the reserved egg white with a fork.  Brush the egg white over the surface of the galette dough
  7. Bake for 30 minutes.
  8. Serve with homemade whipped cream as an option!


Keep refrigerated after making, for up to three days.  Best served warmed up.
