Peach season is dwindling down, but that didn’t stop me from making one more peach treat before the season is officially over. I was gifted a box of Utah peaches last week and I didn’t want them to go bad. They were starting to get really ripe. I’ve been wanting to make a galette for a while, and I knew this would be a perfect way to use up a bunch of peaches.

The nice thing about galettes is that they are super versatile. Any fruit works. They can be made using all of the same fruit, or mixed and matched fruits. Also, galettes don’t have to be sweet, they can also be savory.

What is a galette?

Galettes originate from French cuisine. They are a flat, round pastry made of dough. Galettes resemble a rustic looking pie. The center is always open where the pastry dough is wrapped over a filling.

The process can be a bit time consuming, but the nice thing is making galettes isn’t too complicated at all. Start by cutting up the fruit, then prepping it with the sugar and cornstarch. One mixed, transfer to a colander to start draining off the excess liquids. Baking alone releases plenty of liquids, even in fresh fruit.

 

While the fruit is set aside, start mixing the ingredients for the crust. The crust only takes 4 ingredients. Mix the flour and salt together, then stir in the small chunks of butter. Once that’s mixed, add in the Greek yogurt. Stir well and knead until smooth and dough is no longer crumbly.

 

Rolling out the pastry dough is the most challenging part for me, but this dough holds together well. A trick is to use two sheets of wax paper and roll the dough out between them with a rolling pin. I roll mine out until the dough is round and about ¼” – ½” thick.

 

Once the dough is rolled out, add the fruit filling to the center leaving about a 2-inch border. Fold up the border over the edge of the fruit and fold and overlap the dough as you go. One of the nice things about the rustic-ness of galettes is that it doesn’t have to be perfect! After the dough is all folded, brush the egg wash onto the crust, then sprinkle with the remaining sugar.

How to store a galette?

Similar to a pie, a galette can be stored at room temperature in a resealable storage or air tight container. They can also be frozen. Place the galette on a flat baking sheet in the freezer for about an hour, then transfer to a freezer safe container. They can be stored in the freezer for about a month.
