fresh peach + raspberry galette

by Amy on 6 September 2011

apparently the Let’s Bring On Fall party worked, because the insanely hot temperatures finally dropped in nashville this past weekend. as excited as i am for cooler weather, colorful leaves, comforting soups/stews, + seasonal produce, i wanted to get in one more summery dessert before officially welcoming fall. as peaches are my favorite fruit + still in season, i knew that i wanted to try making a delicious-looking peach + raspberry galette that i had bookmarked months ago.

i was a bit nervous, as i had never made a galette before + they always look so perfect + professional. however, now that i’ve made one, i can say that galettes are shockingly easy to make. who knew?! i was so pleased with both the amazing flavors + the lovely colorful + rustic appearance. the fruits lend a sweet + slightly tart flavor to the filling, while the crust is decadently buttery + flaky. i also love that i can use this recipe all year ’round, using the same galette dough + changing the filling depending on what’s in season.

note that this recipe makes two 8” galettes – if you only want to make one, halving the recipe is easy, although 1 galette will probably only serve 4-5 people, so plan accordingly! i made both, of course. =)

peach + raspberry galette

makes two 8” galettes, adapted from baking with julia, as seen on use real butter


for the galette dough:
3 tbsp sour cream
1/3 cup ice water
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup yellow cornmeal
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
7 tbsp cold unsalted butter, cut into 6 to 8 pieces

for the filling:
2 cups peaches, pitted, peeled, + sliced
1 cup raspberries
2 tbsp sugar
2 tsp turbino sugar
water for brushing the dough
2 tbsp cold unsalted butter


make the dough: mix the sour cream + water together in a small bowl + set aside. put the flour, cornmeal, sugar, + salt in a large bowl + mix with a fork. drop butter pieces into bowl + coat with flour. work the butter into the flour with a pastry blender until the butter pieces resemble crumbs to small peas. sprinkle the cold sour cream mixture over the dough, 1 tbsp at a time, tossing with fork to distribute.

when done, the dough should be moist enough to hold together when pressed. ddd more water if necessary. gather together into 2 discs, cover with plastic wrap + refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or up to 2 days.

make the galette: position rack in lower third of oven + preheat to 400 degrees. line a baking sheet (or two, if you are making both galettes) with parchment paper or silpats. put dough on lightly floured surface + roll out to an 11-inch circle at 1/8th inch thickness. add flour as necessary to prevent stickage. roll the dough around your rolling pin + transfer to the parchment paper/silpat.

spread half the fruit over each dough round, leaving a 2-3” border of dough. sprinkle 1 tbsp of sugar over each pile of fruit + scatter thin slices of the butter on top. fold the border of the dough up over the filling – it will pleat as you fold. brush the crust lightly with water + sprinkle the turbino sugar on top.

bake for 35 – 40 minutes or until pastry is golden + crisp. transfer to a cooling rack + let rest for 10 minutes. serve warm or at room temperature. best eaten the day it is made.

How lovely Amy! :-) I need to have a Fall party too…I’d love some Fall weather in SC! :-)

2 amy September 6, 2011 at 10:20 am

thank you! i assumed y’all got the cold front that we got here (highs are only in the 60s this week!) – sorry that it’s still so hot there. i’ll just have to come visit + host a let’s bring on fall party with you. =)

This is GORGEOUS, Amy! I love peaches and raspberries, and both are on sale this week. I may just have our game-watching dessert for Sunday’s Texans game!!

4 amy September 6, 2011 at 10:41 am

that makes me feel fabulous, wendy. hope you try it out + love it. we’ll be doing lots of football-watching this sunday (+ every sunday for the next few months) so there will be lots of group-friendly snacks + sweets on the blog!

Absolute perfect combo for fall. I can’t wait to see what you do with apple season!

6 amy September 6, 2011 at 10:57 am

one of my girlfriends told me about an autumn galette that she makes using apples + caramel. i’ll definitely be trying that one + some other apple versions soon! + i’ll post about them, of course. =)

Any time a dough is made with sour cream i know we’re going to get along just swimmingly. The addition of cream cheese means we’ll be bffs. This looks divine! I made my first galette last winter and it was so much easier than i anticipated. I love the rustic look of the dough and the richness of the fruit filling. You can never go wrong with a peach/raspberry combo! I think i might have to serve this one with a little scoop of vanilla ice cream :)

8 amy September 6, 2011 at 11:05 am

serving this warm with vanilla ice cream is definitely the way to go! now that i know how easy galettes are, i can’t wait to try other versions using fall + winter produce. it might be fun to play around with some savory versions, too. yay for galettes!

9 Amber @ Caleigh's Kitchen September 6, 2011 at 11:08 am

Amy- These are beautiful and sound delicious! I’ll have to give them a go soon!

10 amy September 6, 2011 at 11:12 am

11 Ashley @ Kitchen Meets Girl September 6, 2011 at 1:14 pm

12 amy September 6, 2011 at 1:27 pm

woohoo! hope it turns out fantastic for you. =)

13 Renee September 6, 2011 at 2:30 pm

Yum! I think I’ll try this recipe with peaches and blueberries. Looks like something that would be great after a big meal. Just the right size (I guess that depends on how big of a slice you get too).

14 amy September 6, 2011 at 2:40 pm

it would be wonderful with blueberries. i almost went with strawberries but changed my mind to raspberries at the last minute. really, the combination possibilities are endless!

15 Marina September 6, 2011 at 2:48 pm
