Peach Galette

When you attempt to make a 'free form' galette, it is so much easier to make a galette, and tastier than the store bought frozen pie crust...I really, highly recommend home made. Just follow the recipe for a double crust pie crust for your galette...here, @ The Clever Carrot...such an adorable name for a food blog; but I will not be commenting  (learned my lesson from previous times, when I promoted a blog)
NO response back!

As for the filling, I got the inspiration from here...@ Kitchen Sisters; but do not follow the instructions for 8 individual galettes, although the dough recipe is beautiful, and correct, but there is no way possible to make more than two galettes (they possibly meant 8 servings) The double crust recipe yields 1 large galette, or two smaller ones.

A perfect summer dessert recipe, and for the fall season as well, as long as you can get fresh peaches. We have an abundance of beautiful peaches, right from Georgia; the state that is famous for the best...ever peaches, just like our Florida is famous for the best...ever, oranges.

As you can see, when I make some kind of dessert, it doesn't last long in my little beach apartment, and so far this week, my children, and grandchildren have been here almost every day enjoying the beach. School is starting soon, and they got the best week to enjoy the last week of sunshine, which we didn't have a lot of in the last month! As soon as the galette got cool enough to cut slices, Gabby just grabbed a fork and ate half of the yummy galette, all by herself. It was just too 'awesome' to let this moment pass, so I grabbed my camera...she just cautioned me not to take a picture of her eating, right there, while it was still on top of the stove cooling!




I used 2 ripe, but firm peaches to fill my galettes and let me tell you...the crust was so full, I barely was able to fold the dough over...but the dough is so perfect each and every time, and I mix it in my large food processor, just using 'pulse' and not mixing rapidly. The dough will actually form into a ball, and then you're ready to wrap it in plastic and press down to shape it into a disk...don't forget to refrigerate for at least one hour.


This is what a chilled disk of dough looks like, all nicely wrapped in plastic wrap, and ready to roll out.









Just lift the plastic wrap off and place it over the top of the dough to roll out, right on the parchment lined baking pan. (make sure the dough is still cold, right after you took it out of the fridge)...this will ensure that you will get a great flaky crust.







A beautiful couple hours at our private beach!

Can you spot the tiny baby crab in the middle?













A gorgeous Sunday on the beach...school will be starting, and I'm sure all kids got to take advantage of the last, or almost last Sunday, before school, doing some fun stuff!






Take care, and have a wonderful week ahead! Hugs, to all

  4. Hi Elisabeth,

    Totally agree with you that homemade pie crust from scratch is always the best but store bought crusts are always good for convenience and desperate moments :p

    Your galatte made with fresh peaches looks yummy!

  10. Nagyon szépet sütöttél, és biztosan nagyon finom is volt, mert gyorsan fogyott:)
    Szép helyen strandoltatok! További szép nyarat :)

  11. What a beautiful peach galette! The colour is so inviting. I wouldn't able to wait for the galette to cool completely. I'll burn my mouth for sure! but will cool it down with ice-cream on the side or creme fraiche :)

  12. Elisabeth, ilyet én is sütöttem, édes meg sós változatban is. Az édeset almával készítettem, nagyon finom volt. A barack nagy kedvencem nekem is, ki kell próbálnom vele a galettet:)

  14. Gorgeous galette! Rather sad that the summer is coming to a close for the kids (and us) isn't it.

  17. ÓÓÓÓÓ, de gyönyörűséges ennek a galettének a színe, az ízét pedig eltudom képzel. Nem is csodálkozom rajta, hogy Gabby csak úgy falta befelé. Biztosan nagyon jól érezték magukat a lányok a strandon, lesz miről meséljenek majd az iskolában. Nagyon szerencsés vagy, hogy ilyen szép helyen élsz. Puszillak drága Elisabeth!!!!

  18. Csodásan néz ki, imádom az ilyen rusztikus sütiket (is):) Kilószámra esszük mi is a nektarint, csak úgy magában, de a családnak el fogom ezt készíteni, nagyon tetszik:) Neked is szép hetet kívánok:)

  19. Yum, there's nothing that screams summer like peaches do and in a yummy galette with homemade pastry ....... all I can say is YUM .......... and drool a bit :)

  20. Hi my dear Elisabeth, your peach galette look really scrumptious. If you offer it to me, I'll not hesitate to finish it at one go. LOL
    Very tempting, the pastry look good.

    It's really nice to stay near the beautiful beach. :)
    I pop in to your pinterest...love your breakfast collections, I'm all shake up and wake up. LOL Thanks for the link.

    With hugs and lots of love to you. Have a nice week ahead.

  21. I have so many pears from my friend right now,maybe I have to make this with pears,looks delicious and fluffy cruncy crust and that crumbled and peaches is tempting me :)

  22. Sunday on the beach... You live in a dream place! The peach galette looks gorgeous, Elisabeth. The more sun, the better peaches are, so I can imagine how wonderful those from Florida taste. I must say it also looks exotic to me because the closest thing I know are very thin French tarts I often prepare either with bought puff pastry or with my own thin pastry (when I don't feel too lazy...). You have now inspired me to bake something with peaches! Thank you for the inspiration and for sharing the wonderful beach photos.

  23. Galette looks stunning and very fruity.

  24. I love the look of a galette and yours is perfect! I don't think I've ever made a peach one...and I need to soon! I'll definitely use your crust recommendation; it rolls perfectly! I'm glad you're enjoying some beach time with your children and grandchildren before school starts...the water is so gorgeous....such a beautiful place you live :)

  25. Annyira szeretem ezeket a rusztikus pitéket. Már egy csomó fajta gyümölccsel kipróbáltam. Almával, körtével, barackkal, áfonyával és szilvával. Mindegyikkel nagyon finom. Nem túl sok dolog van vele és irtó finom tud lenni. A tenger mesés!

  26. Perfect looking galette, Elizabeth! I would love a piece of that beautiful galette right now! There’s nothing like peaches in season. And a perfect day for the beach, especially when it’s with your grandchildren and children. A wonderful place to call home! Have a great day!

  30. hi elisabeth, i think i will be less stressful when comes to making galettes..u know, i'm quite bad at lining and trimming the dough in the dough pan..and most of the time i make my own pastry simply becos the ready ones are not available here at my place! haha..still i believe home made ones are indeed much better and gives me an opportunity to practice more..hehe..hugs back to you and hv a beautiful coming weekend!
