Peach Galette Recipe

This peach galette is an easy desert and, it’s fun to make. The pastry crust is flaky, crisp and perfect topped with a beautiful spread of juicy peaches.

Peaches are plentiful on my parents trees. My hunk (a.k.a. Vadim) and I have been thinking of ways take advantage of these sun ripened, fuzzy beauties. This peach galette is an easy desert. Truly. And, it’s fun to make. I’ve made 2 in the past 3 days.

This is THE ONE! The crust is flaky, crisp and perfect topped with a beautiful spread of juicy peaches. Oh Yum!

Peach Galette Recipe

Peach Galette Filling:

1 lb peaches, about 4 medium, not overly ripe
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 Tbsp butter

Peach Galette Crust:

1 1/4 cup flour (I used flour made in Canada, but all-purpose works well) *measured correctly
1 1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp saltm
4 oz (1/2 cup, 1 stick, 8 Tbsp) very cold butter (Chill the butter in the freezer for at least 20 minutes).
4 to 6 Tbsp ice water
1 egg
A Sprinkling of sugar and cinnamon for the crust

Peach Galette Recipe-2

How to make A flaky peach galette crust:

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

2. Cut 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 should be 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 for 45 minutes to 1 hour then preheat the oven to 425 ˚ F.

How to Assemble your Peach Galette:

1. In a small bowl, beat the egg and set aside.

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

3. On a sheet of parchment paper, roll the dough into a 12″ circle. The parchment paper makes transferring and cleanup a cinch! Place the parchment paper and dough into a rimmed baking sheet.

4. Arrange the peaches in circles over the dough working from the outside in. Leave a 1.5″ to 2″ dough border. Discard any excess juices from the peaches, or your galette may overflow. It will be plenty juicy without the extra syrup. Dot the top of the peaches with small chunks of 1/2 tbsp butter.

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

    Awesome recipe! This was so easy to make. My guests who are not into pies or galette loved this recipe. What made it more special is that I used peaches from my garden. I don’t have a food processor so I used dough cutter for the crust, it worked out perfectly. Thank you for the recipe! Reply

    Ingredients sound delicious. What size
    galette does it make, dough rolled flat,
    and how many inches do you use – on
    average – for the folk-over dough and
    finallly, what size galette do you end up
    with?

    Thanks for you help and consideration

      Hi Lucille, the doll rolled out is 12 inches. You fold over 1 1/2 to 2 inches of dough leaving you with a galette about 9 inches in diameter. Reply

    I’m getting around to making this today as I have some plums and peaches in the fridge. I have a suggestion to ladies that don’t have a food processor… Just grate your frozen butter on the large hole grater. Works perfectly for me 😉 and thanks again for the recepe! Reply

    Hey natasha,
    What can I use instead to make the dough if I don’t have a food processer? A kitchen aide? A blender????
    Help I have a ton of peaches I need to do something with.
    Thanks Reply

      I use the OXO dough cutter/ blender when I make pie dough because my food processor is too small for a whole pie die. They are really inexpensive on Amazon and work wonderfully! Reply

    I made this delicious dessert today!!!We have lots of peaches growing in our backyard so I decided to try. I used less sugar and whole wheat flour instead of white and it had a rustic kinda look to it. I ate it all myself, so I went ahead and made another one for the family!Very good recipe. Reply

      I think they would become too mushy. I haven’t tried it, but I think you’d have best results with fresh peaches 🙂 Reply

    I would love to make this but don’t have a food processor or stand mixer. Could I make it using a regular mixer or by grating frozen butter? Reply

      Do you have a pastry blender to cut through the dough? That would work very well. Reply

    I did slice the apples thinly. I also peeled the skin off. Everything else was the same. The cinnamon and apple combination was wonderful. I thought that it wouldn’t be as juicy as the peaches but to my surprise it was very juicy. I really liked the peach recipe as well but since it’s apple season what better time then now to use apples! Reply

      I haven’t made them with apples. But if I would make it, most likely will use same ingredients. Let me know how it will turn out 🙂 Reply

      It’s a good thing peaches are in season and fairly inexpensive 🙂 Reply

      • August 1, 2013

        I’m coming back to comment that I’ve made this at least 6 times in the past 2 weeks. I almost always make a double portion now…I’ve learned. 🙂 SO SO simple to make, yet SO tasty! My mom & grandma both have an abundant amount of peaches this year so I’m taking advantage of them! (the peaches, not my family:)

        My only question to myself is, “Why did you wait so long!” 🙂 Reply
