Rustic Peach Galette (Free-Form Peach Pie) | August 16, 2023


What is a Rustic Peach Galette?

“Galette” is a French term that describes various types of flat round or freeform crusty cakes with sweet or savory fillings. While some galettes are made with a puff pastry dough base, others (like this peach galette) are made with a simple, buttery pastry crust. For budding bakers looking for forgiving recipes to make, galettes are the ultimate “less is more” dessert. Below, find an overview of the flavor, texture, and cooking time.

  • Flavor: The filling of these peach galettes is a little sweet from the peaches and a little spicy from the cinnamon.
  • Texture: The filling is soft with a little bite, while the crust is flakey and irresistible.
  • Cooking Time: From prep to finish, these galettes take about 2 hours to make.

How to Make a Rustic Peach Galette

Making a rustic peach galette from scratch only requires a handful of wholesome ingredients and a few, simple steps. Below, find a quick hitter overview of the recipe before you dive in.

  • Make the Pastry Dough: Combine the flour and salt in a small bowl and grate the cold butter into the mixture. Stir until combined. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg, water, and vinegar. Combine the wet and dry ingredients together to form the dough. Roll dough into a ball, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  • Make the Galette Filling: Slice the peaches thinly and toss them with sugar, corn starch, and cinnamon in a bowl. Toss until well coated.
  • Assemble the Galette: Divide the dough into two equal pieces for two smaller galettes or keep the dough intact for one large galette. Form the dough into a roughly circular shape on a lightly floured surface using a rolling pin. Arrange the peach slices in circular layers, leaving enough space on the outer edges and folding over to create a crust. Whisk eggs together and brush all over the crust. Finish with a sprinkling of sugar.
  • Bake the Galette: Bake the galette at 415°F for 20 minutes or until it turns golden brown. Enjoy as-is, or topped with ice cream or whipped cream!
