How To Make Summer Peach Galette - Step-by-Step


For the Pastry:

- 1 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar

- 1/4 teaspoon salt

- 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes

- 1/4 cup ice water

For the Peach Filling:

- 3 cups fresh peach slices (about 4-5 peaches, peeled and pitted)

- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

- 1 tablespoon cornstarch

- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

- Zest of 1 lemon (optional, for a citrusy twist)

For Assembly:

- 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)

- Turbinado sugar (for sprinkling)


1. Prepare the Pastry:

- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, and salt for the pastry. Add the cold cubed butter and use a pastry cutter or your fingertips to work the butter into the flour until you have pea-sized crumbs.

- Drizzle the ice water over the mixture and gently toss with a fork until the dough comes together. Gather the dough into a ball, flatten it into a disk, and wrap it in plastic wrap. Refrigerate the dough for at least 30 minutes.

2. Make the Peach Filling:

- In a separate bowl, combine the fresh peach slices, granulated sugar, cornstarch, vanilla extract, and lemon zest (if using). Toss the mixture gently to coat the peach slices evenly. Set aside while you roll out the pastry.

3. Roll Out the Pastry:

- Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). On a floured surface, roll out the chilled pastry dough into a circle, about 12 inches in diameter.

4. Assemble the Galette:

- Transfer the rolled-out pastry dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Arrange the peach slices in the center of the dough, leaving about a 2-inch border around the edges.

5. Fold and Seal:

- Carefully fold the edges of the pastry over the peaches, pleating as you go, to create a rustic galette shape. Gently press the folds to seal them.

6. Brush with Egg Wash:

- In a small bowl, beat the egg. Brush the egg wash over the edges of the pastry to give it a lovely golden color when baked.

7. Sprinkle with Sugar:

- Sprinkle turbinado sugar over the egg-washed edges for a sweet and crunchy finish.

8. Bake to Perfection:

- Pop the Summer Peach Galette into the preheated oven and bake for 30-35 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and the peaches are tender and juicy.

9. Cool and Serve:

- Once baked to perfection, let the galette cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely. Slice and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for the ultimate summer dessert experience.

This Summer Peach Galette is the epitome of simplicity and deliciousness, capturing the essence of ripe peaches in every juicy bite. The buttery and flaky pastry combined with the sweetness of the peaches creates a dessert that's sure to impress everyone at your table.

So, grab those fresh summer peaches and get ready to bake this gorgeous and irresistible Summer Peach Galette. It's the perfect way to celebrate the season's bounty and satisfy your sweet cravings. Happy baking and savoring, my fellow foodies! 🍑🥧
