I’ve been all concerning the peaches these days. I made some peach scones and a peach crisp final week, and I’ve been consuming them like loopy plus I made this peach galette. I used to be craving a peach pie, however I did not need to undergo the additional effort to make one, so I went with a galette. It was a piece day in spite of everything, and simple recipes are wanted after you might be all drained from working all day. Galettes are excellent for that! They’re means much less fussy than pies as a result of they’re rustic, so if the crust is not excellent it’s okay, and also you solely must take care of one crust not two.
It solely took me about 15 minutes to make the galette, the crust is pretty easy to make. The trick is simply to not over-mix it as a result of then it will likely be a little bit powerful. However this one got here out good. I used a barely completely different ingredient base than I’ve previously, preserving the entire wheat pastry flour and almond meal and including in coconut butter and pecan butter as an alternative of the standard coconut oil. It tasted good earlier than baking it, however wouldn’t it maintain up?
Nicely, fortunately it did! It actually tasted even higher than simply the coconut oil. I like nuts in pie crusts, they make them further scrumptious! For the filling I saved it actually easy as a result of the peaches have been so good and flavorful on their very own. I wished to permit them to shine, so I simply added a little bit maple syrup and vanilla plus a contact of lemon juice to them.
The galette baked up fantastically! It smelled so good whereas baking, I couldn’t wait to strive it! Fortunately I didn’t have to attend lengthy, as a result of I wish to get pleasure from these items whereas nonetheless heat from the oven. It was heavenly with a wealthy crust, jammy peaches baked to tender perfection with a touch of vanilla. My favourite option to get pleasure from these is with some coconut milk ice cream which I sadly did not occur to have available (however you would possibly). Subsequent time I assume. In case you are within the temper for one thing much like peach pie however simpler to make, give this a strive!
