Peach Galette

I am not going to lie, this peach galette is not only gorgeous but it is also delicious. I ate half of it after I did this photo shoot ha ha. Peaches, almonds and buttery goodness all in one. Wonderful for breakfast, desert or even brunch. I can't wait to try more flavors because all you have to do is change up the fruit. Bake on a cookie sheet or a tart pan, either way you won't go wrong. Enjoy! 



1 cup flour 

1/2 teaspoon sugar 

2 pinches of salt 

6 Tbsp salted butter, cold, cubed 

3 Tbsp cold water 


1/2 cup finely ground almonds 

1/4 cup sugar 

2 ripe peaches, qartered and then sliced 

1 Tbsp butter, melted 

1/2 tsp lemon juice 


Make the dough: In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar and salt. Add the butter and start working the butter into the flour with your hands until there are pieces the size of large peas. 
Add the water and continue mixing just until it forms the dough. Do not overwork the dough. Cover with a plastic wrap, press down to flatten dough into a disk and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before rolling out. 

Preheat oven to 400 F. Remove dough from fridge. Working on a lightly floured surface roll the dough into a 10 - 11 inch circle. Place dough onto a baking sheet or a tart pan lined with parchment paper. 

In a small bowl mix together the almonds and sugar. Sprinkle half of the mixture over the dough, leaving about a inch or inch and a half border. Arrange peach slices starting with the outside of the dough (leaving the border empty). Sprinkle the rest of the almond sugar mixture but two table spoons over the fruit.

Fold the border of dough into the peaches, pinching the edges to make sure they are sealed. Brush the border with the melted butter and sprinkle with the remaining almond sugar mixture. 

Bake in the middle section of the oven for 30 - 40 minutes or until crust is well browned and its edges are slightly caramelized. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 20 minutes before serving.
