Peach and Blueberry Galette


The family went Peach picking last Sunday and I bought too many peaches, 39 to be exact.

They are ripening quickly, so I decided to make a Galette, they are so easy and soo good. A dollop of whipping cream or ice cream and you are set, plus it is pretty enough for company!

1 refrigerated pie dough
4-5 peaches, peeled and sliced
1/3 cup blueberries washed
2 tbl white sugar
2 tbl butter
Turbinado Sugar (or Sugar in the Raw)

Place your dough on a non stick pan or silpat

Pile the fruit in the middle of the dough, leaving a 2 inch border

Sprinkle with the regular sugar

Put dots of butter all over the fruit
Fold the pie dough around the edge they will naturally fold into each other

Brush the edges (that are folded) with water and sprinkle on the Turbinado Sugar

Bake at 400 for 25-30 minutes, let cool
Serve with Ice Cream or Whipping Cream if desired

That looks great! I don't think you can ever have too many peaches.

what a perfect Galette!! I wish we still had local peaches to make one with and they pair so well with fresh blueberries!
thanks for sharing your results with us!

I've never tried making free-form tarts or pies before...they look so rustic, and beautiful, yet probably takes less effort!
