Tuesdays with Dorie – Summer Fruit Galette

This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie recipe, Summer Fruit Galette, was chosen by Michelle in Colorado Springs. This was a great choice for me as it challenged me to try something I’d never made before and also have me the opportunity to get over the… fuzziness of certain fruits. *shudder*

The idea of this galette is layering sliced fruit over some marmalade (or plum jelly in my case) and then covering it all with a custard. Very simple and very elegant looking.

My original plan was to go with plums since it’s one of the only stone fruits I’ll touch but for some reason I was feeling a little wild while grocery shopping and picked peaches instead. I must admit, they’re much less intimidating when you boil and peel the skin off.

Overall this was a good dessert. I think it definitely would’ve been better with plums, but the peaches weren’t awful. I’m not sure I’ll make the galette again but I will say that I almost cried when the kid dropped half of it on the floor.

Michelle has the full recipe on her blog and make sure you check out the blogroll.

    The peaches look great in the galette, and I’m not a peach fan. How sad that you lost 1/2 of it to the floor. :o(

    Your galette looks great and I love the pattern from the peaches! I used nectarines and thought it was OK; will try peaches next time.

    When I was growing up, I NEVER ate a fresh peach because of the Fuzz Factor. We did have canned, however, which was fine by me. I love peaches now, which is great since I live in Georgia, home of amazing peaches. I still won’t bite into one with the skin on it, however!

    Your galette is stunning!

  17. Jules Says:

    That looks gorgeous! 1/2 of it on the floor??? Did you use the five second rule?

  18. Barbara Says:

    I always peel peaches. Under the fuzzy skin they are so delicious!

    I love the design of your galette, with the spiral in the center and the nicely shaped edges. Yum!
