My brother’s birthday was a few weeks ago and I was stumped as to what to make for his big day. He didn’t want a cake so red velvet was out. I hadn’t made a dessert with peaches all summer and knew I couldn’t let the summer pass me by without baking with fresh peaches while they are in season. I decided to try my hand at baking a galette or free form dough pie. Galettes are simple to make and are a lifesaver for people like me who struggle to make pretty pie dough. I must admit I cut corners and didn’t make the dough this time, but next time watch out!
Have you ever made a galette before? I’d love to hear how yours turned out!
2-3 large peaches
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablspoons of butter (softened)
1/4-1/2 tsp of cinnamon ( or season to taste)
1 tsp vanilla
Dash of fresh nutmeg
1 refrigerated pie dough crust (I used Pillsbury)
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut the peaches in a large bowl and add the sugar, butter, cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg. Use a spoon to mix all of the ingredients together. Place the pie dough on a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil. Add the peach mixture to the middle of the pie dough and fold up the edges, pinching the edges to seal. Place your galette in the oven and bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Enjoy!
