A galette is one of the most charming desserts. “Galette” is the French term for a free-form tart. There’s something about fresh fruit piled in a rustic sugared crust that’s so elegant and inviting. Fresh Peach Galette combines fresh peaches, sugar, lemon and vanilla piled into a pastry crust and baked to perfection.
Try apples, pears, apricots or berries!
This fresh peach galette could easily be transformed with apples, pears, apricots or berries. Our favorite way to serve a galette is warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Some recipes add cinnamon and ginger to their peaches. This recipe gives you the pure flavor of the peaches.
Making the peach filling
After the peaches are peeled and sliced, sprinkle them with the lemon juice and vanilla. Next, sprinkle the peaches with sugar and toss gently.
Sprinkle with flour and toss again. This will thicken the juices as the galette is baking.
Forming the pastry crust
Roll the pastry crust into an 11-12 inch round. Pile the peaches in the center. You can create a decorative spiral if desired. Make sure to keep a 2-inch border free around edge of the pastry.
Sugar - sugar!
Fold the pastry crust up over the edges of the peaches and crimp. Brush surface of pastry with egg wash. Then sprinkle pastry with sanding sugar.
Bake galette until peaches are bubbling and pastry crust is golden.
Fresh Peach Galette is Easy and Elegant!
Although elegant in appearance, a galette is actually easier to make than a pie! Try it for your own “happily-ever” after almost any meal.

Great recipe. However, the juices run out and on to the parchment paper. I followed the recipe exactly, and I'm wondering why? The Galette is delicious, but he juices running out all over the place bugs me. Is it the filing or the should the crust be homemade? I used store bought.

So sorry you had juices running all over, that is annoying. A store bought pie crust works great, how much juice there is will depend on how juicy your peaches are. Thanks for pointing this out, we will work on making a range for the thickener so juicier peaches won't have this problem in the future.
this was way too juicy. It ran all over the pan. Luckily I had parchment under. I even left some of the juice in the bowl seeing it was too much

Hi Connie, sorry to hear that happened! It really can vary depending on how firm or juicy the peaches are. Leaving some juice in the bowl was a good idea, you can also add a little extra flour or cornstarch to help thicken it up. I hope it still tasted good!
This was perfect! I will be making it again tomorrow!
