Recipe for peach vanilla galette: buttery, flaky crust filled with fresh peaches and vanilla and baked until golden brown and bubbling!
Prep Time1 hr
Cook Time30 mins
Course: Dessert
Servings: 8 slices

Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ cups all purpose flour
  • ½ cup cold, unsalted butter
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon granulated white sugar
  • 2 tablespoon cold water

For the Peach Vanilla Galette

  • 2 cups sliced peaches
  • ¼ cup granulated white sugar
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1 egg (for egg wash)
  • turbinado sugar for sprinkling

Instructions

For the Crust

  • In a food processor pulse 1 ¼ cup of all purpose flour, 1 tablespoon granulated sugar and ¼ teaspoon salt together.
  • Cut ½ cup of cold butter into small pieces. While the food processor runs add the butter a few pieces at a time.
  • Add 2 tablespoon of cold water a little bit at a time until dough pulls together and starts to form a ball. (If the dough is still too dry after 2 tablespoon of water, add a little more water a tablespoon at a time until the right consistency is achieved).
  • Form the dough into a disk, wrap it with plastic wrap and chill it in the fridge for 1 hour or overnight.
  • When ready to make the galette, take dough out of the fridge and let sit for 30 minutes or so until it becomes a little softer.
  • On a floured surface, roll the dough out into a large circle, about 9 inches in diameter, about ¼ of an inch thick. Transfer the dough to a parchment paper lined baking sheet at this point.

For the Peach Vanilla Filling

  • Toss 2 cups of sliced peaches with ¼ cup of granulated white sugar, 1 tablespoon corn starch and 2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste. Let sit for about 10 minutes.
  • Once the dough is rolled out and on a parchment paper lined baking sheet, spoon the peaches into the center of the dough. Do not pour the liquid on top or it will be a runny mess.
  • If you desire, heat the remaining peach syrup in a small sauce pan. Let it simmer for a few minutes until you notice it getting thicker. Spoon the thickened peach syrup over the peaches.

Forming & Baking the Galette

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Begin folding the galette by taking a small piece of the outside of the dough and folding it about an inch in. Fold the next small outside piece of the dough so it slightly overlaps the other. Continue until all of the outside of the dough has been folded.
  • Brush a whisked egg over the dough perimeter and sprinkle turbinado sugar over the peaches and the dough.
  • Pop the galette into the fridge for at least 20 minutes. (The galette won’t keep it's shape if not chilled).
  • Bake the galette for 30 minutes at 400 degrees. The dough should be golden brown and the peaches should be bubbling.
  • Let it cool for a few minutes before serving. It is best served with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!
