Rustic Blueberry Apple Galette

This recipe was created on a whim. I just wanted to bake something original but didn't know after looking through my pantry and fridge this is what I came up with. I think it turned out beautiful! 

Pastry dough (I used my homemade pie crust recipe)
2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
1 apple cut into small cubes
1/2 cup sugar
3 tbsp cornstarch
zest of one lemon
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp fresh grated nutmeg
pinch of salt

 Pie Crust Recipe
1 cup flour
1/2 cup chilled butter cut up in cubes
 1/4 tsp salt
 1/4-1/3 cup tepid water
 2 tsp white vinegar

Make pie crust and set aside (or store in fridge while you mix fruit mixture)
Combine all the filling ingredients in a medium sized bowl stirring well to make sure all the sugar and cornstarch coats the fruit evenly. Set aside while you roll out pastry dough. Roll out into about a 10 inch circle and place on baking sheet. Pour fruit mixture in the center and fold up the edges of dough. (it's rustic, so it doesn't need to be perfect) Brush edges of dough with an egg wash (one beaten egg, and brushed on) then sprinkle with raw sugar. Bake @ 375 degrees for about 45-50 minutes or until beautiful golden brown! Let rest before slicing.You can substitute whatever fruits you like...wouldn't a Pear Galette be delicious!?
