Cherry and Peach Galette / #FarmersMarketWeek

This Cherry and Peach Galette is so much fun to make and eat! If you haven't ever had one before, you will be surprised at how easy it is to make. I used a store bought pie crust, which makes the Galette even easier, but a homemade crust can be used also! The beauty of the Galette is it's rustic look. You never have to worry about it looking perfect like you might a pie crust, and the fruit is definitely the star of the show with this dessert!

Cherry and Peach Galette 
(printable recipe at end of page)

1 pound Fresh Bing Cherries
4 small Fresh Peaches 
1/2 pound Fresh Blueberries
2 tablespoons Sugar
2 tablespoons Flour
9" round Pie Dough
Coarse Sugar
Powdered Sugar


Wash, pull off the stems, and pit the cherries. I used Bing cherries for the most part, but I had a few Rainier Cherries left over from another recipe, so I used those also. Place in a large bowl.
Wash and pull off the stems of the blueberries. Add to the bowl of fruit.
Mix in the sugar and flour with a spoon.
Place fruit into the center of the pie dough. Pile up the center higher than the edge of the circle. You will have a little fruit left over, but I know it won't go to waste! Use the leftover for topping ice cream or making a smoothie! Start bringing the dough up like in the picture. Pinch and fold the dough to the side. Sprinkle the dough with coarse sugar.
Place Galette on a baking sheet that is covered with parchment paper. Bake at 425℉ for 15-20 minutes. Make sure the bottom of the dough cooks completely.You can check it by sliding a spatula under the galette and slightly tipping the spatula up to look. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes.
Sprinkle confectioner's sugar on the top. Slice into pieces and enjoy!

Thank you for joining me today. If you haven't ever made a Galette, I think you would enjoy doing so. As you can see, they are easy and pretty quick to make and a Galette is an great way to get rid of fruit that needs to be used up. For variety, another way to top your Galette is with a scoop of whipping cream!
