Peach Galette | What is it?

Peach Galette…sounds super fancy, right?! Well, don’t let the fancy name throw you off. A galette is a French word that simply means freeform and flat crusty cakes. It is similar to a pie but is baked on a cookie sheet instead of a pie plate. It is an easy dessert that sounds and looks impressive, but takes no time and hardly any effort to put together. The more rustic the better! We gobbled these up fast! And, I didn’t have any vanilla ice cream on hand, so fresh whipped cream had to do. But, do me a favor and serve these warm with ice cream! You’ll be glad you did!

Main Ingredients Needed

Here is what you’ll need to gather up from your pantry to make a Peach Galette. If you prefer to make the pie crust from scratch, feel free to do so!

  • Pie Crust – store-bought or homemade! Here are two of my favorite homemade versions: All Butter Pie Crust and Pie Crust Made with Shortening.
  • Peaches – fresh is best in this case! Peaches are in season during summer which is perfect for get-togethers. You can use regular peaches or another variety for different flavors.
  • Flour – this coats the peaches and soaks up their juices (you may need more depending on how juicy your fruit is).
  • Salt – to balance out all the flavors.
  • Cinnamon + Sugar – to sweeten and flavor.
  • Fresh Orange Juice – to add flavor and moisten.
  • Heavy Cream – to be brushed over the top of the galette and topped with sugar. I love that crunchy texture!
  • Butter – cold. Cut into small pieces and placed on top of galette for baking.
  • Vanilla Ice Cream and/or Whipped Cream – to serve with your galette. Use either homemade or store-bought.

Peach Galette Variations

Now this is a simple peach galette recipe, but don’t let that stop you from subbing out some of the peaches for another fruit you love. Here are some common peach galette variations:

  • Blueberry
  • Apple
  • Plum
  • Raspberry
  • Blackberry
  • Pear
  • Cherry

Simply prepare fruit (wash, cut, and/or skin) then add in place of some of the peaches. The combination of flavors is so yummy!

How to Make a Peach Galette | Directions

Here are the step-by-step directions for making Peach Galette. For complete and printable directions, scroll down to see the printable recipe card below.

Step 1: Blanche Peaches + Preheat Oven

Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil. Cut a small ‘x’ in the bottom of each peach. Gently drop peaches into hot water for 30 seconds, remove and submerge into ice-cold water immediately. Once cool enough to touch, remove skins. They should peel right off. 

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees while you’re peeling the peaches.

Step 2: Slice Peaches

Cut peaches into slices and add to a bowl. Stir gently with sugar, flour, salt, cinnamon and orange juice.

Step 3: Roll Out Pie Crust

Unroll store-bought pie crust onto parchment paper lined baking sheet. Alternately, flour board and rolling pin. Roll homemade dough into a 12 to 14-inch inch circle (roughly).

Step 4: Spoon Filling Into Dough Circle + Fold Sides Up

Spoon peach filling into center of dough, leaving a 1 inch border. Fold sides of dough up over filling. Brush edges of dough with cream and sprinkle with sugar. Place small pieces of butter across the top of the peach filling.

Step 5: Bake {Note The Oven Temp Change}

Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 325 and continue baking for 20-25 minutes until pastry is brown and peaches are soft. Cool at least 20 minutes before removing from pan and serve with vanilla ice cream and/or whipped cream.

Storing Instructions

While a Peach Galette is best eaten the day it’s baked, it can be covered loosely and stored at room temperature for up to 2 days.

Can I Make a Peach Galette Ahead Of Time?

Yes! The dough and filling can be made ahead of time, stored in airtight containers in the fridge for up to 3 days.

A baked galette freezes well for up to 3 months. Simply thaw in the fridge overnight, and then serve warm.
