Summery Peach Galette

Here is an easy recipe to help you use all of the summer peaches you love.

This tart is baked together with a buttery crust on the bottom and  peaches with an almond cream on top.

This tart takes a short 30 minutes to to bake so dessert will be ready in no time at all.


3 peaches (blanch them in hot water to remove the fuzz on the skin)

Crust (Pate brisee)
100 grams flour
50 grams butter (cold)
1/2 egg
1 teaspoon water
pinch of salt
3 grams of sugar

1. Measure the flour into a bowl.Cut the butter into small cubes and mix into the flour mixture using a pastry cutter. (You can also use a food processor for making the pie crust). Lastly, mix in the egg, water, salt and sugar.
2. Lightly knead together on a flat board to blend all the ingredients well. Flatten into a large circle and cover in plastic wrap. Put in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes before using. This dough becomes soft quickly so you should work with it quickly.

Almond Cream
50 grams almond powder
50 grams powdered sugar
50 grams soft butter
5 grams flour
1 egg

1. Mix the butter and powdered sugar. Add the egg and mix. Add the almond powder and flour. Mix well.

Making the tart:
1. Roll out the dough to about  a 20 cm circle. Spread the almond cream within the circle but leave about 1 cm around the edge. Place sliced peaches on top of the cream in a nice decoration then fold the edge of the crust inside of the circle. Brush with egg.
2. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for about 25 - 30 minutes.
