A buttery freeform crust surrounds a juicy fruit filling in this simple and delicious peach galette recipe.
For the pie crust:
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
- 1 cup (2 sticks) cold butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
- 1/2 cup ice water
- Egg wash (1 egg + 1 tablespoon water, beaten)
- Turbinado sugar, for topping
For the filling:
- 6 fresh peaches, pitted and sliced into 1/2-inch thick slices
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- Zest and juice of 1/2 lemon
- First, make the pie dough: In the bowl of a food processor, pulse together flour, salt and sugar until combined. Pulse in cold butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs, then pulse in ice water just until a dough forms (it will begin to gather in the bowl). Transfer dough to a counter; knead a few times to incorporate dough to a smooth mass, then press into a 1/2-inch-thick disc. Cover tightly with plastic wrap; refrigerate 1 to 2 hours.
- Next, make the filling: Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, toss sliced peaches with remaining filling ingredients. Let the mixture sit 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Meanwhile, on a lightly floured surface, roll out chilled dough to a roughly 14-inch circle. Top with peach filling, arranging or spooning filling to within 1 inch of the edges. Fold over edges of the pie dough to encircle filling. Drizzle any remaining juice from filling bowl over peaches. Transfer baking sheet to refrigerator to chill for 10 minutes.
- Brush pie dough edges with egg wash, then sprinkle liberally with turbinado sugar. Bake 45 to 50 minutes, rotating halfway through, until filling is bubbly and pie crust is golden brown and baked through. Serve warm or at room temperature.
- Store leftovers tightly covered in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
- 100% recommend serving slices of this galette with vanilla ice cream.
- No need to peel the peaches for this recipe! The name of the game here is ease, and the peach skin softens considerably during baking.
- You can make the pie crust ahead of time and freeze it! Once you’ve assembled the pie dough, cover it tightly with plastic wrap, then place it in a resealable freezer bag; freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator until you’re able to roll out the dough. Proceed with the recipe as written.
