Peach Plum Galette

I had peaches and plums sitting on the counter top ripe and ready, waiting to be used up. I had been 'eyeing' this recipe for sometime and with a bit of pie pastry sitting in the fridge I was ready to go. Wasn't until I chatted with Trish and she asked if I would post this recipe that I had even thought of my camera! We had enjoyed some of this rustic looking pie at supper but thought I'd take a photo anyway and post it. It was ever so delicious especially with a scoop of frozen vanilla yogurt.
  • 1 1/2 cups nectarines or peaches, cut up in wedges, I used peaches
  • 1 cup plums, cut up in wedges
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 refrigerated pie crust
  • 1 large egg white, lightly beaten
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  1. Combine fruit, sugar, flour, cinnamon, and almond extract.
  2. Roll out pie crust (I had leftover pie dough so I just eye balled the size, approx 9 or 10" in diameter) onto parchment lined cookie sheet.
  3. Place fruit mixture in center leaving a 2 1/2" border around the edges. Fold edges of crust over filling, pleating and pressing dough together gently to hold shape.
  4. Brush edges with beaten egg white and sprinkle with coarse sugar.
  5. Bake at 425º for 15 minutes then reduce oven temperature to 375º and bake for 20 minutes. Cool 10 minutes on cooling rack.
  6. Very good served warm with whipped cream, ice cream or frozen yogurt.
  7. Serves: 6


  1. I love the picture! Looks like it was Delicious! My daughter has pointed out that recipe to me - made with apples. Now I have it handy. Thanks! (I actually got on here because I was just going to post something with plums. Coming up sometime soon.)

  2. Oh Betty....would love to come and have a coffee with you and the 'galette' that I know what it is! Yum...left over fruit turned fancy!

  3. oh I just love free form rustic galettes. They are so quick especially with some purchased crust. . i had recently tried some rolled out crust that was on sale in the dairy case at Safeway and tucked it away . .i was glad I did when Kathy's pumpkin pie recipe came up and the other crust would be perfect for this. . at $2.50 for two crusts. . .it's worthwhile.
    I can well imagine how delicous this galette was. .

  4. Oh...that looks very inviting! I'll let you know when I try it.

  5. hmmm any leftover for our brkft in a sure looks good. i too love the rustic and simple recipes. yummy!
