peach and almond galette



I fell in love with the blackberry and vanilla galette I made a few weeks ago, and thought I would make one with these gorgeous peaches I bought at the Farmer's Market. 




Have you ever had vanilla bean ice cream topped with  fresh peaches that have been sauteed in brown sugar, cinnamon, and a dab of butter?

It is so so so good.


Add toasted almonds on top of that, and you've elevated a simple Peach Sundae to a whole new level with the buttery crunch of almonds. 

So . . . with that delicious sundae in mind, I thought I would attempt to recreate it in the form of a galette.




I add the warm flavors of brown sugar and cinnamon to the peach mixture, as well as pure almond extract for a creamy, buttery finish. 

Raw sugar and sliced almonds grace the outer crust . . . giving it a light, sweet crunch

Add a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream to a slice, minutes after taking it out of the oven . . . and you might have a little piece of heaven on a plate.




Yes, it's a beautiful and delicious dessert, but the best part is that it's so easy to make!

It's truly a wonderful dessert to serve when having friends and family come over for dinner.




I highly recommend serving it to your guests right out of the oven (with ice cream!).

Prepare the peach mixture beforehand, since slicing peaches takes several minutes; and then place the mixture in the refrigerator until you're ready to fan them on your dough.

The longer the peaches sit in the brown sugar and cinnamon mixture, the more they juice . . . that's why you want to wait to assemble the galette until you're ready to bake it.

For an extra special treat . . . don't hesitate to reserve some of the peach, brown sugar, and cinnamon juice to drizzle atop your galette and ice cream just before serving it to your guests.

Yum. Yum. Yum!






peach & almond galette
.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .
1 prepared pie crust
2 large ripe peaches, sliced 1/8” thick
4 Tbsp brown sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 Tbsp flour
3/4 teaspoon pure almond extract
1 egg, beaten
½ cup sliced almonds
Raw sugar
.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

Preparation
Thaw prepared pie crust in refrigerator, according to directions.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silpat mat, or parchment paper.

Slice peaches, then place into a bowl and sprinkle the brown sugar, cinnamon, and flour on top. Add pure almond extract. Gently stir the peaches until the sugar and flour have evenly covered them.

Remove the dough disc from the refrigerator and fan peaches, overlapping, in a circular shape in the center of the disc, leaving a 1-inch border. Fold the 1-inch border of dough over the edges of the peaches and refrigerate for 15 minutes.

Transfer unbaked galette to the prepared baking sheet, brush with egg wash, and sprinkle with toasted almonds and raw sugar.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until the peaches look shriveled and crust is lightly browned. Let the galette cool for at least 5 minutes before serving.

  13. I have been on a roll using peaches this season and this galette is happening today - it looks so yummy! I do have a question as I am confused about the comment you made about butter in the pastry. Did you use a specific brand or did you roll butter into it? Thanks for sharing this recipe. I am a new follower and am looking forward to your future posts!

      Peaches have been extra ripe and juicy this year. Yum!
      I buy Trader Joe's Pie Crust. I love that it's made with real butter, and I love that you can actually see that when you roll the dough out! I wanted to point that out to readers :0)
      So happy that you're a new follower!
      I look forward to hearing from you again soon.

  29. Your peaches look beautiful Suzanne. We just bought a big box and this recipe would be a perfect way to use them this week. We are at Tim's parents house now and since I have started my blog they have come to expect great things from the kitchen when I come to visit. I think this recipe will suit perfectly. Thanks! I'll let you know how they enjoy it.
