It sounds fancy, but it’s not! A galette is basically a free-form, open pie that doesn’t require perfection. It makes for a great dessert when you’re wanting pie, but don’t have pie time.
This peach galette recipe is perfect for using your in-season peaches. Make your own pie crust or use a store bought one.
Easy Peach Galette Recipe
- 2 cups pitted and sliced peaches (2-4 peaches) (1/2 inch slices and you can leave the skins on)
- 1 1/2 tsp cornstarch
- pinch of salt
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1 pie crust (homemade or store bought)
- flour for dusting
- 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)
- sugar for sprinkling, about 2 tsp
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
- In a mixing bowl, gently toss together the sliced peaches, cornstarch, salt, and 1 tsp sugar. Set aside.
- On a lightly floured surface, roll the pie crust out to a 12" diameter. Gently transfer the rolled out pie crust to a lined baking sheet (with parchment or a silicone baking mat).
- Arrange the peach slices in the center of the pie crust in a circle (you can even just scoop the peaches into the center; arrange however you like!).
- Fold the outside of the pie crust toward the center (I folded a small section and then moved onto the next section, folding that part over the previous section).
- Brush the top of the folded pie crust with the beaten egg and then sprinkle sugar over the top of the crust.
- Bake for 35-45 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Allow to rest for at least 15 minutes before slicing and serving.
