Recipe | Peach Galette
Galettes are something that I often see pictures of and totally lust over. I have made a few but not for a while and it is rather apparent that I need practice! I decided to take advantage of all the delicious summer stone fruit around in Sweden at the moment and whip up this galette for my bestie/roomie and I. Am hoping to go berry picking soon and make a berry one!
This one was super easy and you could use whatever fruit you have on hand. The pastry is really quick and simple but I think I will try out a different recipe next time because this one isn't all that amazing but definitely did the job!
A perfect dessert to whip up.
1 1/3 cup all purpose flour
1 tbsp powdered sugar
1/4 tsp salt
150 g cold butter, diced
3 - 4 tbsp ice water
2 - 3 fairly ripe peaches
1 tbsp sugar (I used brown sugar)
1 tsp cardamom
2cm chunk of ginger, grated
Preheat oven to 200C
Combine flour, sugar and salt in a bowl. Place into food processor and add in the butter.
Blend until bread crumbs form. Add in 2 tbsp of water and mix until dough just comes together (add in extra tbsp if dough is too dry). Wrap with cling wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours (I was impatient and put it in the freezer for about 40 minutes...).
Before taking the pastry out of the fridge, slice peaches in about 2 cm pieces Place in a bowl and coat with sugar, cardamom and grated ginger.
Take dough out and use your hands and a rolling pin to roll into a circle. Arrange peaches in a circle about 2 inches from the edge of the dough. Fold up the side of the galette and pinch the pastry together every few inches. I definitely need to practice this, mine is rather rustic!
Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake for about 30 minutes until the pastry is golden and the peaches are bubbling away.
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream of greek yoghurt.
