Paul, my Farmers’ Market neighbor, is quite the adventurous curmudgeon. A retired house painter, turned baker, he often shares stories about fly-fishing in the western US or sailing our Great Lakes. Paul also has a side-gig in retirement, baking delicious breads and cookies prepared in his homemade, outdoor, wood-fired oven. Last year, he started offering peach galettes, a rustic French pastry. After trying one, Chad and I added this tasty treat to our baking regimen. Here’s our version:
This Peach Galette can quickly be prepared with minimal effort:
- Place a prepared pie crust on a baking sheet
- Mix 1/2 tablespoon of flour, two tablespoons of brown sugar, and a dash of cinnamon in a bowl
- Gently toss peach slices (approx 2-3 large, fresh peaches, peeled and sliced) in mixture and spread in middle of pie crust (allow a 2-3 inch circle of pie crust around the outside)
- Begin folding the pie crust around the edge, until completing the circle
- Brush crust with olive oil and sprinkle with brown sugar
- Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown
- Let sit for 5 minutes before eating, pairs well with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream
Looking for other recipe ideas? Try apples or a savory spinach and feta galette…we’re going to try a tourtiere galette this winter.
Note: Unused portions should be covered, refrigerated, and enjoyed within 3 days.
Thanks for reading!
YUM! I’m looking forward to trying this! I also love the comment in your email “Also, while working in the garden last week, our rooster attacked me. Now we are looking forward to another tasty fall dish, Coq au Vin (Rooster in wine sauce).” I’m telling you…the birds are evil! 😉
This rooster was the worst! He would run up to house when I walked to my car. Mom used to have a rooster like that. She would take a tennis racquet to do chores. Lol!
