peach galette.

Last week we enjoyed this peach galette with french vanilla ice cream and a bottle of chardonnay outside under the stars.

I love summer.

I used peaches that I found for $.88/lb, but you could substitute any kind of fruit – apples would be great, berries, pears, apricots, plums, cherries.

And top it with some form of cream.


Peach Galette

(Serves 6)

What You’ll Need:

1 sheet puff pastry

5 peaches, sliced

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon vanilla (or brandy, grand marnier, etc)

1 egg

2 tablespoons half and half or cream

turbinado sugar

whipped or ice cream


Preheat oven to 375. Roll out puff pastry to desired thickness.

In a bowl, mix peaches, brown sugar, cinnamon, lemon juice and vanilla.  Separately mix egg and half and half or cream in a small bowl.  Pour peaches on puff pastry, then roll sides over and brush top with egg/cream mixture.  Sprinkle top with turbinado sugar for extra crunch.

Bake on a jelly roll pan (or cookie sheet with sides) for 20-25 minutes or until fruit is bubbling and top of puff pastry is golden brown.

Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

TOTAL:  $6.50 with ice cream or about $1.08 per serving.

How do I figure these costs?  Take a look at my shopping spreadsheet to see what I pay for items, average costs per serving, etc and to figure out how to make all this frugal foodie stuff work for you.

  1. Your galette must have been delicious, the peaches look perfectly ripe. We have an apple orchard and I love to make a small apple galette for two.

  3. Looks yummy! Do you think it would work to substitute plain yogurt for the half and half or cream in this recipe?
