A rustic Peach Raspberry Galette filled with juicy peaches and tart raspberries, for the perfect end of summer dessert and the easiest pie you will ever make!
I’ve been wanting to make a galette for quite some time now! Galettes seem to be the hot trend in the pie world at the moment. They are like a beautiful artwork showcasing seasonal fruit and the best part is that they’re so simple to make. There’s no need for a fancy weaved lattice top or crimped edges, just roll, fill, fold over and you’re ready to bake.
We are nearing the end of summer and peach season here in Ontario. The farmer’s markets and supermarkets are bursting with all shapes and sizes of juicy peaches just waiting to be eaten. I love using fruit that’s in season as it tastes fresher, sweeter and has more flavour. Using local in-season fruits and vegetables is also less expensive also, and supports local farmers. It also has a higher nutrition value since they were picked fresh and didn’t have to be transported for long distances.
And since I’ve already created a Blueberry Peach Cobbler and Grilled Peaches with Salted Caramel Sauce, I figured next up would be a peach galette! Now I didn’t want to make just any peach galette. It had to have a pop of colour and something to balance out the sweetness. What better way then tossing in another favourite fruit – raspberries! I just love how the tartness of raspberries perfectly compliments the sweetness of the peaches. They are a match made in galette heaven!
Traditionally galettes are made with pastry flour, but you know by now that I don’t make any recipe the “traditional” way. I had my heart set on making an oat/almond flour galette (I’ve been on an oat kick lately). Sadly it was a complete flop, as the galette was super dry and fell apart like sand. The peaches were cut too thin, and the raspberries were taking over. So once again I turned to my trusted friend, Mr. Spelt, and like always he had my back. The crust was perfect, peaches were cut thicker, raspberries reduced, a dash of cinnamon was added, and we had a winner!
My dream of creating a recipe with oat/almond flour will have to wait for another time. In the meantime, I’m sure you will love this delicious galette! Keep in mind you can fill it with any fruit of your choice. Let me know in the comments below what fruit combination you love in your galette!!
