Peach Galette

A Galette is a rustic, flat round pastry with a baked fruit topping.

Peach Galette



2 cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup + 2Tbsp. butter, cut up
1 egg, beaten

1/4 cup Orange Marmalade
2 tsp. water

Fruit topping:

4 peaches, sliced
4 Tbsp. butter, melted

Combine dry ingredients, cut in butter until coarse and crumbly. Add egg and mix just until dough comes together into a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 30 minutes. Divide dough in half and roll out on a floured board into 9-inch circles.

Combine marmalade and water, brush a small amount lightly over bottoms of dough. Set aside remainder.

Arrange peaches over dough, overlapping in a flower pattern, fill center of flower with blueberries. Fold over edges of dough. Baste peaches with melted butter and sprinkle with sugar.

Bake in a preheated 425 degree oven for 10 minutes, lower heat to 350 degrees and bake an additional 30 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Brush remainder of marmalade over fruit.

These Ohio-grown peaches are from Bauman Orchards

Gremlin Update: If you left a comment on my blog in the last few days and do not see it, please be aware the Google Gremlins ate it and I did not delete it. Thank you for stopping by ...

It looks soooo gooood!! And ooh I happen to have peaches in the house!! Off to another BBQ tomorrow... guess what I'll be bring??? LOL!

PGL said...

That looks so yummy Mom. Now you made me hungry, thanks alot! lol :)

Balisha said...

I have done a similar thing with apples. I've been buying peaches and now I know what I am going to do with some. It probably doesn't have as many calories as a regular pie...not having two crusts. I like the addition of the marmalade.Your pictures are great!

I don't make the prettiest crust in the world, but it is delicious! Let me know if you make it.


This is a very easy dessert to do, you could use ready-made crust and get the same effect :)


Anytime I use fruit I consider it a "healthy" dessert :)

I have seen a few galettes around the blogosphere lately, one more yummy than the next. Yours looks so pretty, I love the peach and blueberry pattern.

shambo said...

Yeah! I see the galette! And it is indeed yummy looking. You know I'm a sucker for fresh peaches, and fruit pies are my favorite desserts. However, I'm afraid of pie crust, so I never make home made pies.

The galette is so rustic, though. Perhaps even I could manage its crust. (Yes, I understand the irony. How could someone like me who has been making baklava, spankopita, and other fillo-based dishes all my life be afraid of pie crust? But it's true!)

I love the addition of orange marmalade too. I think that's a perfect combo.

Thank you, and thanks for visiting my blog.


LOL .. I, who have never attempted baklava is giggling just a little. As I told Lucy, I have never mastered the "pretty" crusts, but mine are tasty :) Thanks for the compliments.

shambo said...

Linda, forgive my ignorance. Do you add any liquid to the pie crust or is the egg sufficient?

OhioMom said...

Just the egg Sue .. "if" it seems too dry, you could add a Tbsp. of water or two, but I did not. I like this crust so much, I could eat it alone :)

Paula said...

Oh, look at that! That crust looks so good and sugary! Your fruit pattern is so pretty, too. I love marmalade and I can almost taste it looking at the picture. YUM!

Deeba @Passionate About Baking said...

YUM YUM YUM...I love galettes & yours is beautiful! Very nice indeed. I made one a few days ago with peaches & plums! I love this rustic French pastry! Yours is truly beautiful!

OhioMom said...


I love marmalade too :) The crust does make this dish.


Thank you. It was all the galettes I have been seeing that made me want one, my guys gobbled them up:)

Kevin said...

That peach galette looks really good. I like the berries in the middle.

Bren@Flanboyant Eats said...

There are some really great peaches out this time of year - and this looks damn good!


Grace said...

mmm...that just screams rustic and delicious!
(and by the way, some of the comments aren't appearing on my blog either--very frustrating!)

Kim(ayankeeinasouthernkitchen) said...

My favorite desserts are rustic and this sure fits the bill. The fact that it is made with peaches makes it that much better. Lucky you for having coolish weather.

OhioMom said...

Darius the peaches are really good this year, and thank you :)

Grace, thank you .. I think the gremlin gobbler is eating random blog comments :)

Kim thank you ... it is more Fall-like than the dog days of August up here, which makes me happy because then I can bake :)

giz said...

Mom - seriously good eats. I can't think of anything more inviting than something with peaches this time of year. Just the smell of them off the trees makes me swoon.

OhioMom said...


Me too :) and I will be making another peachy dessert this week.

bee said...

Priscilla said...

Jacqueline said...

Mmmmmm, lovely! I would have a slice of that in a flash :P

OhioMom said...

Thanks Bee, I wanted it to look like a petal and it did :)


Thanks, I will stop by.


Too late, my guys inhaled them :)

Just the Right Size said...

Apple galettes are my favorite! I love making them because "it's a pie without all the hassle". :-) Have never made a peach one, but may have to now!

Cynthia said...

Darn girl! You can really make people drool :D

OhioMom said...

Kathy .. that is why I like them too, I don't have to worry about that perfect looking crust.

LOL Cynthia .. thank you :)
