In honor of warmer weather, I'm sharing my all-time favorite Peach Galette recipe! This fruit galette is great right out of the oven steaming and bubbly. But it’s also great served cold with a scoop of ice cream.
Fresh, juicy and flavorful peaches are finally here and they are perfect in this simple fruit galette. Essentially a rustic, no-fuss pie, a fruit galette is a great way to enjoy everything you love about a pie without all of the work.
What is a fruit galette?
Hailing from France, a galette can be different depending on the region and/or cook. It can be made with a yeasted dough, flaky pastry dough, or an unleavened dough and is most often flat and round in shape. Galettes can be sweet or savory and can also be in reference to a variety of different tarts.
You'll see galettes filled and topped with fruit and jams as well as meats, cheeses, and nuts.
This recipe is of the sweeter variety and features a flaky pastry dough. Filled with juicy ripe peaches and flavored with just a splash of almond extract, this peach galette is simple but spectacular.
