Imagine a warm summer evening, a golden sun setting on the horizon, and the sweet aroma of ripe peaches and tangy raspberries filling the air. It’s the perfect time to indulge in a delightful Peach and Raspberry Galette, a rustic dessert that captures the essence of the season.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 3-4 ripe peaches, sliced
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)
  • 2 tablespoons apricot jam (for glaze)

Instructions

  1. Start by making the pastry dough. In a large bowl, combine the flour, granulated sugar, and salt. Add the cold cubed butter and use a pastry cutter or your hands to work it into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  2. Sprinkle a few tablespoons of ice-cold water over the mixture and gently knead the dough until it comes together. Shape it into a disc, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. On a floured surface, roll out the chilled dough into a circle about 12 inches in diameter. Transfer it to the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Arrange the peach slices and raspberries in the center of the dough, leaving a border around the edges. Sprinkle with brown sugar and drizzle with vanilla extract.
  6. Fold the edges of the dough over the fruit, creating a rustic border. Brush the dough with beaten egg for a golden finish.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the fruit is bubbling.
  8. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly. Heat the apricot jam in a small saucepan until it becomes liquid, then brush it over the fruit to give it a beautiful glaze.
  9. Slice and serve your Peach and Raspberry Galette warm, perhaps with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for the perfect summer treat.
