From the moment I read the recipe for Dorie's Summer Fruit Galette, I knew I wanted to make it with peaches. But, I also knew I couldn't get Martin to buy peaches if they weren't Ontario peaches. They're the only ones we ever buy and they weren't in season yet.
So fast forward to this past weekend when we're at the store to get a few things for dinner and there they are, baskets full of gorgeous, ripe, fragrant Ontario peaches. Woohoo! As Homer would say. Since I had no problems with the Good for Everything Pie Dough for the Blueberry Pie a few weeks back, except for the fact that I found it too buttery, I decided to tweak it just a bit and reduce the butter by a few tablespoons. That did the trick.
I actually preferred the taste and texture of the crust this way. And it came together just as easily. I used amaretti cookies instead of graham crackers to absorb some of the juices, and peach jam, just to make sure the peach taste would come through. And I tossed my sliced peaches with a little cornstarch before assembling the galette as I didn't want it to leak.
The part I wasn't so sure about was the custard. But it was delicious! I love how it made the peaches glossy and the creaminess it gave to the galette was just right.
I can't think of one thing I didn't like about this recipe, except maybe that it was gone too quickly! That's entirely my fault though as I halved the galette recipe. But I do have enough pie dough in the freezer to make another one, that's not too shabby!
For the recipe, visit Michelle in Colorado Springs, she chose this beauty! I can't wait to see what the rest of the Tuesdays with Dorie gang came up with this week!
