Prepare Pastry Dough For Peach Galette
To prepare the pie dough “crust”, first roll out pastry dough to a 10 inch circle on a lightly floured surface. You can use homemade pie crust dough or purchased pie dough. There is no need to trim the edges , because a “rustic” look is perfect! Fold the dough circle in half, and carefully transfer dough to the middle of a 13×9 inch baking sheet. Set aside.
Make The Streusel Topping
In a small mixing bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and cold butter. Cut in the butter, using a pastry blender or two forks. Cut the butter in until the mixture is crumbly and the butter has been reduced to the size of peas. Stir in chopped pecans (or walnuts). Set aside.
Prepare The Peach Filling
In a large mixing bowl, mix together peeled, thinly sliced fresh peaches, granulated sugar, flour, cinnamon, and lemon juice. Stir gently, to combine. This is the filling for the peach galette. NOTE: If you are using frozen peaches, make sure they are not packed in syrup. Thaw peach slices completely, before using.
To Assemble Peach Galette
First, place the peach filling into the center of crust, slightly mounding up in middle. Be sure to leave about a 2-3 inch rim of BARE crust all around the edges of the dough.
The next thing to do is evenly distribute all of the streusel topping over the peach filling. Mound this up in the middle, as well.
Gently pull the crust up and slightly over the edges of pie/streusel filling. This will form a roughly shaped “crust” that holds the peach galette filling in.
The beauty of making a galette like this is you do NOT have to form a pretty “crust” and crimp the edges like a typical pie in a pie pan. This method is much easier, and makes the finished dessert look a bit more rustic!
Bake The Streusel Topped Peach Galette
Place the peach galette into a 425°F preheated oven. Bake for approx. 30-35 minutes, or until streusel topping and crust are golden brown. When done, the pie filling should also be cooked through and bubbly. Remove baking sheet from oven to a wire rack.
Time To Enjoy The Streusel Topped Peach Galette
Let the galette cool on the baking sheet for 10-15 minutes, before slicing or transferring to a serving plate.
Serve the peach galette as is, or top each slice with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Whether you serve this dessert “plain”, or “a la mode”… either way tastes fantastic! Hope you will enjoy the flaky crust, fresh fruit filling, and the buttery streusel topping on this delicious dessert!
I hope you enjoy this delicious tasting peach galette! We sure did! It was all I could do to keep my husband out of it, because it was so good… ha ha! Have a wonderful day, and please come back again soon!
