Peach Galette

I've never made a galette before and I was surprised about how fast it was to make, the peaches were soft and full of flavor, the dough turned into a soft cookie and the juices made the galette really moist and crunchy at the same time, it's very easy to make and besides you can change the peaches for plums or apples, my dad loves peaches so I decided to make it, I plan to make apple or fig and ricotta galette next time.

- 275 gr. flour
- 150 gr. unsalted butter, diced
- 1 egg
- 50 ml of cold water
- 4 teaspoons of brown sugar

1. Put the flour, sugar and the butter in a food processor until the mixture looks like sand. Put it in a medium bowl and mix with the egg and water, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

- 4 firm peaches
- 1 teaspoon of honey
- 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla
- 1 tablespoon of cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon of brown sugar

1. Slice the peaches and carefully mix them with honey, cinnamon, vanilla, cornstarch and sugar. Roll the dough with a floured rolling pin and put the dough in a preapred pan, place the peaches on top of it without the juice.

2. Gently cover the peaches with the dough on the sides, pour the peaches juice on top and add some butter (you know...for better flavor of course)

3. Bake for 40 minutes at 360°F. Let it cool or serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

[ It will be really moist and with a beautiful glaze an top ]


  1. This looks so PRETTY!!! Good job! Did you make the recipe or did you get it from somewhere? I've never had or made this but it looks heavenly! :)

  2. Super bonitos los gajos de durazno acomodados, además de riquísimo!

  3. Wow, it looks just great. I'd love to try it! :)

  4. The caramelly sauce that forms on those peaches looks TO DIE FOR. I would have trouble not just biting into the galette and devouring the whole thing.

  5. What a beautiful galette...Perfect Fall dessert!

  6. This looks incredible. I've never had a galette either but it looks like that will be changing soon.

  7. This looks SPECTACULAR! Seriously beautiful. I bet it was heavenly.

  8. That is one beautiful dessert, Betty. I can still find local peaches in the farmers' market and this is the perfect way to use the last of our favorite fruit. Thanks so much for visiting my blog and for leaving a comment. It's a pleasure to meet you.

  9. Betty, this post is so fetish-worthy, I've been inspired to include it in my Friday Food Fetish blog. If you have any objections, please let me know

  10. I made one of these a while ago and was so surprised at how easy it was to make and what a success it was! So easy and so delicious... mmm :)

  11. That looks gorgeous! I love peaches. :-)
