Peach Galette

This Peach Galette is one of the best summer desserts you can prepare. I love the rustic look of the galette, and the fresh yellow peaches along the flaky crust were amazingly delicious. Not only does it look good and taste heavenly, but it is also very easy to make. You don’t need a tart pan; just roll out the dough and add fresh fruits tossed with butter, sugar, and cornstarch.

You can also make this dessert with other fruits like apples, plums, or apricots, and add walnuts or almonds along with spices like cinnamon or vanilla.

This peach galette holds a special place in my heart as it was the first recipe I featured in my very first cooking video. We’ll be making many more, so I hope you enjoy our debut video!

How to make peach galette

Begin with preparing the crust. Start by sifting the flour into a large bowl. Mix the flour with salt and sugar until well combined. Using a pastry blender, a fork, or a food processor, incorporate the butter into the flour mixture until it forms coarse crumbs. Slowly add the water, stirring until the dough begins to come together. Shape the dough into a disc, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).

While the dough is chilling, prepare the peach filling. Slice the peaches and place them in a bowl. In a separate small bowl, mix the sugar with cornstarch. Add the sugar mixture to the peach slices along with the butter, and toss gently to coat the peaches evenly.

How to shape the galette

Once the dough has chilled, remove it from the refrigerator. Place it on a lightly floured surface or on a sheet of plastic wrap to prevent sticking. Roll the dough out to about a 13-inch diameter circle. Carefully lift the rolled dough and place it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Arrange the peach slices in overlapping circles on the dough, leaving about a 1.5-inch border around the edges. Fold the edges of the dough over the filling, creating pleats as needed. Sprinkle the crust and peaches with additional sugar.

Bake the galette in the preheated oven for about 40-45 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the peaches are tender and bubbly. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10-15 minutes before serving.

Cut the peach galette into slices and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a delicious dessert.

    I love a good galette, they are so perfect for the summer. I have a load of peaches right now, but my tarte pan is occupied, so this is perfect.

    I also must add that your video is quite beautiful.

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      Thank you for your appreciation. Yes, galettes are just perfect every time you don't have a pan at your service, and I would say faster solution:).

  3. Janet Author says:

    I made a peach galette a couple of weeks ago but had trouble with the crust leaking. Any suggestions?

    Can’t wait to give your recipe a try. It looks absolutely delicious!

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      Thank you Janet. Yes the  dough can get leaky if the butter starts melting. It is important to work as fast as possible with it. Also sprinkle some flour on the rolling pin before starting to roll the dough, it will help too.  Maybe you will try this recipe of the crust, and it will work better for you. Let me know.

      I love galettes too.. so quick to prepare and so delicious.. let me know if you enjoyed the peach one as well

  9. Amanda Author says:

    what’s the reason behind chilling the butter in the freezer?

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      It is important to make sure it is cold enough as pieces of butter still need to be a bit visible in the dough. Try to not overwork the dough. Those pieces of butter will create that flaky, tasty crust, other wise it will be tough.
