Apricot Cherry Galette

This apricot cherry galette is filled with the juicy apricots and sweet cherries with an easy and flaky pastry crust. Easy apricot cherry galette! | natashaskitchen.com

The crust on this Apricot Cherry Galette is flaky and perfect and the filling is scrumptious! Our summer stone fruit is finally ripening. If you don’t happen to have an apricot tree, keep in mind that seasonal fruit is usually plentiful and inexpensive in grocery stores.

If you’ve tried our peach galette, you will LOVE this one! The apricots and cherries worked so well together. Try this Apricot Cherry Galette with a side of vanilla ice cream; good-ness!!

Apricot Cherry Galette Filling:

1 lb apricots, not overly ripe
1 cup cherries, pitted
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 Tbsp butter

Apricot Cherry Galette Crust:

1 1/4 cup all-purpose unbleached flour *measured correctly
1/2 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt (omit if using salted butter)
4 oz (1/2 cup/ 1 stick/ 8 Tbsp) very cold unsalted butter
4 to 6 Tbsp ice water
1 egg
A sprinkling of sugar and cinnamon for the crust

How to make a flaky, perfect crust for Apricot Cherry Galette:

1. In a food processor with blade attachment, pulse 1 1/4 cups flour, 1/2 Tbsp sugar and 1/2 tsp salt until  mixed.

2. Cut 1 stick cold butter into small (1/2-inch) cubes and add it to the food processor. Push the pulse button 8 times. Your butter should become pea-sized. Add ice water 1 Tbsp at a time and pulse between each addition. Your dough is ready when it just begins to clump. I used 5 Tbsp of ice water.

3. Form the dough into a disk. Don’t overwork it, just pat it into a disk shape, dust with flour on all sides and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate 45 min to 1 hour

Preheat the oven to 425˚ F.

4. In a small bowl, beat the egg with a fork and set aside.

5. Slice apricots into 1/2″ thick slices. Place apricots and pitted cherries in a medium bowl and sprinkle with flour, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. Stir gently with a spatula just until combined.

6. On a sheet of parchment paper, roll the dough into a 12″ circle. The parchment paper makes transferring and cleanup easy! Place the parchment paper and dough onto a rimmed baking sheet to catch any leaks.

7. Arrange the apricots in circles over the dough working from the outside in. Leave a 1.5″ to 2″ dough border. Top with cherries. Discard any excess juices from the fruit, or your gallette may overflow. It will be plenty juicy without the extra syrup. Dot the top of the fruit with dots of the 1/2 Tbsp butter.

8. Fold the edges of the gallette up and over the peaches, pinching the overlapping edges together to form a nice seal. Try to patch up any cracks in the dough.

9. Brush the crust with beaten egg and sprinkle generously with sugar and cinnamon. Bake for 18-22 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the peach juices are syrupy. Let sit 15 minutes before serving.

    Hi,

    After I bake it, do you think it would keep well in the freezer? (If I want to make it as an in-advance dessert).
    Thanks, Vera Reply

      Hi Vera, I haven’t tried it that way so I’m not sure. I think you could make it work but without testing it myself, I just don’t know. Has anyone else tried freezing a galette? Thanks in advance friends! 🙂 Reply

    Is it possible to do this without a food processor? Reply

      Yes, it’s easiest with a food processor but you can use a pastry cutter to cut the butter into the flour or use 2 knives to do it. Reply

    We bought a box of apricots and a box of cherries yesterday, and today while trying to come up with a dessert that could incorporate both, I googled “apricot and cherry galette” and look what I found! Great minds think alike ;). Glad you posted a recipe for this–I will have to try making it this week! Reply

    Amazing! I loved it, thank you so much for the recipe! I guess, my apricots were a little too ripe so it got a little soupy in the middle, but it tasted wonderful nonetheless! For once, I was actually happy my son didn’t really like it, more for me! 😉 (And please, don’t take it personally, he’s a horribly picky eater. 🙂 ) Reply

    So I made TWO peach galettes before I left the house hoping that when I come back home in the evening, at least some would be left for me. But no surprise, NOT EVEN A CRUMB WAS LEFT!! My family said that this was one delicious treat. 🙂
    I’m making two more batches today (but i’m doing it in the morning) so by the time my family shows up, I would be the first one to sample it this time 🙂 Thank you for a great recipe, it’s definitely a keeper!! Reply

  • Oh Natasha! I had such great plans for my cherries but now they must be thrown out the window so that I can make a galette! Did those apricots come from your Mom’s garden? Reply

      I would only use fresh fruit, frozen fruit will get too watery and won’t look good. I hope this helps :). Reply

    Natasha, I have been checking your blog for about a year and I just wanted to say thank you for all your time and dedication! I have tried several of your recipes and love them.

    I love cherries (especially sour ones – but they are hard to find). Combining apricots with cherries is a brilliant idea! Yum-yum! Reply
