Galettes are sneaky. They may look complicated but are actually very easy to achieve.

Galettes can be savory or sweet, but with peaches in season I couldn’t help myself.

I made this for company earlier in the week and it exceeded everyone’s expectations. All that is needed with this dessert is a cup of coffee…and perhaps a dollop of whipped cream if so desired.

    ½ teaspoon salt
  • ·
    1 egg
  • ·
    4 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
  • ·
    2 tablespoons shortening
  • ·
    2 teaspoons cream (heavy or light cream will do. if you have none on hand, full fat milk is fine)
  • ·
    for peach filling:

    1 tablespoon cornstarch

How to Make Peach Galette

Step-by-Step

  1. In a bowl, gently toss together sliced peaches, vanilla, starch and sugar. Set aside in the refrigerator until ready.
    In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar and salt. Whisk in one egg until the mixture is crumbly.
    Add cold butter and shortening. Mix with hands until a soft dough begins to form.
    Add cream one teaspoon at a time - the amount of cream may vary.
    Form into a disk and wrap in plastic wrap and place in the freezer for about 2 hours.
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    On a flat surface, flour a sheet of parchment paper. Roll out chilled dough into a circle about ¼-inch thick.
    Spoon peaches into the center and gently use the parchment paper to fold over the edges of the dough (this is a very delicate dough). Lift the parchment paper to transfer the galette onto a cookie sheet.
    Bake for about 25-30 minutes until the center is bubbling and the edges are golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
    If desired serve with whipped cream.
