Plum and Peach Galette

Plum and Peach Galette

I believe every season should be celebrated with GALETTE. There are so many options, sweet or savory, but my favorite is plum and peach or apple and plum combination.

Which I usually make as soon as the Fall season comes around. I had a few blueberries and thought it would make it that much more delicious and it really did, plus it gives a little contrast.

Plum and Peach Galette

In case of the dough or a crust, you can make it yourself buttery, rustic and delicious pie crust. However, you may buy it in your grocery store as well. Nobody is judging!

For instance, when I am short on time, I certainly buy it and bake my Sunday dessert in no time.

With that being said, I believe that there is nothing better than homemade. You be the judge! If the peaches and plums are in season, grab a few of each, and bake your heart out.

Plum and Peach Galette

Actually, I baked three galettes. I spooned over galette a couple of scoops of delicious vanilla ice cream.

Then we gathered around the kitchen island and ate like crazy people. Well, I got to tell you that every crumb was gone really fast from my cutting board.

Believe me, it is not a really a pretty picture, but we are really comfortable around each other, of course. I love when we feel comfortable enough that eating with fingers is okay.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 sticks cold unsalted butter cut into pieces
  • 1/4 tsp. Salt
  • 1 tbsp. Sugar
  • 1/3 cup ice cold water
  • Filling:
  • 1 tablespoon peach or plum jam
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon Sugar
  • 3 Peaches
  • 3 Plums
  • 1 tbsp. Peach Extract
  • Addition:
  • 1 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • I FORGOT TO SPREAD THE JAM on the inside IN THIS PICTORIAL AND REALIZED THAT LATER.

Instructions


Crust

  1. Rub the cold, diced butter into the flour, salt, and sugar with your fingers until it is well combined, and looks more like breadcrumbs. Mix in the ice cold water and bring the dough together into one lump. Wrap it in plastic wrap or large ziplock bag and store in the fridge for about 30 minutes.

Rolling:

  1. Preheat an oven to 400F (200C). Place the pastry on a floured surface, roll out into a circle about 16-by-18-inch and 1/16 to 1/8 inch thick. Spread 1 tablespoon of peach or plum jam all around. Transfer the crust in the well greased and floured circular pie pan, or line the pan with a parchment paper. Scatter a spoon of the flour and sugar over the rolled out pastry, leaving a border of about 3-4 inches all around the edge; This will help, so your galette bottom would not become soggy during baking.

Filling:

  1. Arrange the peach and plum slices and fan around the center of the disc. I used two of each for the fan, then one plum and one peach dice into smaller cubes. Add diced peach and plum around the peach/plum fan that is in the center. Drizzle the filling with a bit of Peach Extract. Close the crust over the diced fruit and until you reach the fruit fan. Brush the edges of the pastry with melted butter or beaten egg. Add about 1 tablespoon of cubed butter or just use chunks or butter all around fruit fan and then dust it all with sugar.

Bake:

  1. Bake the Galette in the middle of the oven for about 40 to 45 minutes, until the filling is bubbling and the crust looks nicely golden brown. Allow it to cool down for a bit and enjoy it with ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.

Notes

You may add some berries like I did, blueberry, raspberry or blackberry. Instead of Peach extract, you may add vanilla extract. Peach Extract gives you a richer flavor.
