Peach Galette

Peach Galette

 

In the last period everywhere I’ve looked there was a Galette dessert , peach, blubbery , apple, etc. They looked amazingly good and with a beautiful  rustic look, so, I’ve  just had to find a recipe and try one for myself.

So, after checking some recipes I’ve stopped to this Peach Galette one that I’ve found very easy to make as you don’t need a pan, just your hands :),  and not to forget the heavenly taste in the end. 

You can serve it with a little vanilla ice-cream on the side, but for me simple was just perfect !

Try it, and you will not regret it !

DIRECTIONS :

  1. Prepare the crust.  Mix the flour with salt and sugar. Incorporate butter to the flour, using  a fork  until crumbs are formed. Slowly add the water and stir until the water is incorporated.  Wrap it with plastic, knead slowly to form a disc and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven  to 200° C
  3. Slice the peaches and place them in a bowl. Mix sugar with cornstarch and add over the peach slices. Add butter and toss gently to coat.  
  4. Using the wrap plastic at the base, roll the dough to about a 13 inch diameter. Lift up the rolled dough and place it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. 
  5. Arrange the peach slices in overlapping circles starting one and a half inch from the edge.
  6. Fold the edges of the dough over the filling and sprinkle with sugar.
  7. Bake for about 40- 45 minutes, remove from the oven and let cool for 10-15 minutes. Cut and serve  like it is or topped with vanilla ice-cream.

Enjoy !
