Peach and Blueberry Galette-Get ‘em While You Can

Oh, peaches, how I’ll miss you until next year. Parting is truly such sweet sorrow, but we’ll have another week or two together until we have to say “see you later”.

Aside from eating peaches out of hand and feeling the juices drip down my chin, I adore baking with them. This galette is so darn easy, with a crust that comes together in a minute, with very few ingredients. After chilling in the refrigerator for a couple of hours, it rolls out easily to make a very rustic cradle to hold your favorite fruit. You can fill this galette with your favorite berries and stone fruits. Top with honey and sugar, and it bakes up to a gorgeous golden brown.

I topped this galette with fresh whipped cream laced with ground cardamom and crystalized ginger. What a taste sensation!

  1. Yum. Lazy pie. It’s perfect. Someday I’ll have a big freezer so I can freeze bags of farmer’s market peaches. Then I’ll make this right in the middle of the winter.

  2. Hey there, did you get those peaches from the Kingstowne farmer’s market? As of last Friday (9/11) the last stand on the right still had them. I picked up three and they still had a lot of flavor. Not as juicy as the weeks in August but still full of flavor. Unlike at the supermarket across the parking lot.. blechh!! I’m hoping they still have them this Friday so I can squeeze one more week out of summer. :0

  3. Mary-I HAVE to learn canning so I can eat peaches in the winter! And tomatoes!
    Hey Philly Girl! I got the peaches from Toigo Orchards in Del Ray. In Kingstowne, are you talkng about http://www.bestorchards.com?
    They have AMAZING peaches-I hope to get there tommorow….

  4. [...] Slow Cook makes the big summer to autumn kitchen garden adjustment.     Houndstooth Gourmet’s peach and raspberry galette looks positively pornographic (in a good way).    Arugula Files enjoys Rays the Steaks.    [...]

  5. Sigh…. Ours are already simply a blissful dream!
    And the blueberries! I really miss them…. Not available here.
    Your galette – perfect!

  10. Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured
    I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa?

    My blog covers a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you are interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the way!
