PEACH GALETTE


A traditional French galette is a flat,   round and free- form  pie or tart with a crisp crust  It has either sweet or savory filling..The best part of galette is that the dough is  folded around the edges exposing the filling in the center.

This rustic crust is so easy to put together and I had used canned peaches for this recipe. Make sure you drain the peaches well before adding other ingredients. It is best served warm right after it has been out of the oven, simply irresistible!

PEACH GALETTE
Servings      :     6

CRUST
1 and 1/2 C all purpose flour
2 TB sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 C butter cut into small pieces
3-4 TB  ice water
Extra butter for glazing

FILLING
3-4  peaches cut into eights
1 TB lemon juice
1 TB corn flour
2 TB brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt

METHOD FOR FILLING

Toss all the ingredients and let macerate for 10 minutes.

METHOD FOR CRUST

Combine sugar, salt and flour in a mixing bowl.

Add butter,  process until it resembles course meal either using food processor or by hand.

Add ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time until a soft dough is formed. Wrap the dough  in plastic wrap,  chill 30 mins -1 hour.

TO ASSEMBLE

Preheat oven @ 190 C. Take the dough out of the fridge, roll out dough into 12 in round about 1/8 in thick, transfer onto baking sheet..

Place the filling in center, leaving about 2 in border. Fold edges of dough toward center, pressing gently to seal.

Brush the edges with butter, bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown.

Transfer onto rack to cool. Cut into wedges to serve.
