Peach Vanilla Bean Galette

Prep Time 1 hour
Cook Time 30 minutes
Course Dessert
Servings 8 slices


#### For the Crust

  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup cold unsalted butter
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon granulated white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cold water

#### For the Peach Vanilla Galette

  • 2 cups sliced peaches
  • ¼ cup granulated white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 egg for egg wash
  • Turbinado sugar for sprinkling


#### For the Crust

  • In a food processor, pulse together 1 ¼ cups of all-purpose flour, 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, and ¼ teaspoon salt.
  • Cut ½ cup of cold butter into small pieces. With the food processor running, add the butter a few pieces at a time.
  • Gradually add 2 tablespoons of cold water until the dough starts to form a ball. (If the dough is too dry, add more water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until it reaches the right consistency).
  • Form the dough into a disk, wrap it in plastic wrap, and chill in the fridge for 1 hour or overnight.
  • When ready to make the galette, remove the dough from the fridge and let it sit for about 30 minutes to soften slightly.
  • On a floured surface, roll the dough into a large circle, about 9 inches in diameter and ¼ inch thick. Transfer the dough to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

#### For the Peach Vanilla Filling

  • Toss 2 cups of sliced peaches with ¼ cup of granulated white sugar, 1 tablespoon cornstarch, and 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste. Let sit for about 10 minutes.
  • Spoon the peaches into the center of the rolled-out dough on the baking sheet, leaving the liquid behind to avoid a runny mess.
  • If desired, heat the remaining peach syrup in a small saucepan and simmer for a few minutes until it thickens. Spoon the thickened syrup over the peaches.

#### Forming & Baking the Galette

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Fold the edges of the dough over the peaches, overlapping each fold slightly to form a rustic edge.
  • Brush the folded edges of the dough with a whisked egg and sprinkle turbinado sugar over the peaches and dough.
  • Chill the galette in the fridge for at least 20 minutes to help it hold its shape while baking.
  • Bake the galette for 30 minutes at 400°F, until the dough is golden brown and the peaches are bubbling.
  • Let it cool for a few minutes before serving. It’s best served with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!
