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.
