Peach Galette

Pies can be a lot of work. So much rolling, cutting, arranging, getting the lattice just right…like, am I the only one that is exhausted just thinking about it?! That’s where galettes come in. Lazy girls rejoice! If you don’t feel like doing all the work of a pie, but also enjoy eating pie, this peach galette is for you.

Simply place your fresh, juicy peaches on top of a pie crust and fold in the sides and you’ll have a beautiful, organic, peach galette that tastes just as delicious as pie with half the work. I love serving this at dinner parties when I know my guests want a dessert, but I don’t feel like trying that hard (just don’t tell them that).

What is a peach galette?

Galettes are essentially open-faced pies. You’ll use the same buttery, flaky pie crust you’d use in a homemade pie, but instead of putting it in a pie dish and making some fancy edge and design on top, you simply fold the edges of it over your fruit filling to hold everything in.

Galettes are supposed to look quite rustic and can be made sweet or savory! You assemble and bake them on a baking tray, so you don’t have to worry about shaping them in a pie plate or anything like that! I ALWAYS serve this peach galette with a scoop of ice cream in the middle, but you can serve it simply with a dusting of powdered sugar or some whipped cream.

How to make the flakiest pie crust

Making homemade pie crust can seem intimidating, but once you get the hang of it it’s actually kind of fun to make. Simply combine all the dry ingredients, cut in the butter and add enough water (or vodka) to form a dough! I love to use my food processor for this, but you can also make it by hand if you don’t have one or just don’t feel like breaking out the food processor.

Once the the pie crust comes together, form it into a flat, oval disk and refrigerate before rolling out!

You should refrigerate your pie dough for at least a half hour, but up to 2 days! If you’re not ready to make a pie just yet, you can also freeze your dough for up to 3 months and pop it out of the freezer whenever you’re in need of the perfect homemade pie crust. Just take it out the day before you want to use it to defrost in the fridge!

Tips for making the best peach galette

Galettes are way easier to make than pies and tarts. A few key things to remember when making a galette from scratch are:

  • Make a homemade pie crust — I know it’s a little extra work, but it is SO worth it for this easy peach galette. You’ll get the best flaky texture and buttery flavor for a homemade pie crust, and the crust will hold its shape better in the oven. That being said, if you’re in a pinch you can definitely make this peach galette with a premade pie crust
  • Use ripe peaches — The quality of your fruit will really make or break your peach galette. We recommend using fresh, ripe (but not too ripe), peaches! I like to splurge on the organic ones–it really makes a difference!
  • Don’t overstuff the galette — I like to mark where the edge of the filling should be with a pie plate (I explain how to do this in the recipe below). If you put too much filling inside the galette, the crust might not bake properly and the filling might ooze out while the galette is in the oven.
  • Top the crust with sugar — This is a nonnegotiable for me. Topping the crust with sugar will give your pie crust a beautiful golden brown, sweet, crunchy finish that is both beautiful and delicious!

Happy peach season, friends! Enjoy!

Ingredients

For The Pie Crust*

  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter cold, cut into cubes
  • 23 tablespoons ice cold vodka or water
  • 1 egg, for egg wash
  • coarse sugar

For the Peach Filling

  • 3 large peaches, pitted and cut into thin slices
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 Tablespoon all purpose flour
  • pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Place the flour, sugar, and salt in a food processor. Add the cold butter to the food processor and pulse until the mixture resembles wet sand and no large chunks of butter remain.
  2. Add in the vodka (or water), one tablespoon at a time. If your dough has come together, don’t add any more vodka. You want just enough to bind the dough into a ball.
  3. Turn the dough out of the food processor and form into a flat oval disk and wrap in plastic wrap. Place in fridge for at least 30 minutes, but up to 3 days.
  4. Once your dough has chilled, preheat the oven to 375°F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  5. Sprinkle a work surface with flour. Roll your dough out into a 12-inch circle. Place dough onto prepared baking tray. Place a 9-inch cake pan in the center of the circle and press down ever so slightly. This will create an indentation to show exactly how far out to place your filling!
  6. In a large bowl, combine the peach slices, sugar, flour, and salt. Toss together to evenly coat
  7. Place the peach mixture in the center of the pie crust in an even layer. Top with the small pieces of butter. Lift the edges of the pie dough in towards the center, folding every 3-4 inches as you go around.
  8. Mix  the egg with 1 tablespoon water and brush over crust. Top with coarse sugar if desired. Bake for 30-40 minutes, until the filling is bubbling and the crust is golden brown. Serve with vanilla ice cream!
