Berry Peach Galette

This Berry Peach Galette uses fresh summer fruit for a beautiful, rustic dessert! Includes simple recipe for homemade dough, or use store bought pie crust dough. 

When did we decide that perfect was beautiful? I think I might be in the minority here, but when I see a perfect pie lattice or a beautifully decorated cake, I just get stressed out just thinking about getting it "just right." When I first considered making this Berry Peach Galette, I originally envisioned it as a pie. But, since 2020 has me a little weary, I went for pie's lazy (but fancy-sounding) cousin, a peach galette!

Making a galette instead of a traditional pie takes removes a lot of pressure. You don't have to worry about rolling the dough until it's an even thickness, making sure the dough doesn't tear, crimping the edges evenly or putting a beautiful top on it!

Now, if making the perfect pie is your thing, don't think I'm hating on you! I just know it's not for me. I love galettes like this Berry Peach Galette because they're perfectly imperfect. They're rustic and their imperfections make them interesting!

I used blueberries in this Berry Peach Galette, but I encourage you to use any tart berries that you have on hand. Blackberries and raspberries are great substitutions, as well.

And, because I know you will ask, yes of course you can use pre-made pie crust for this. Buy ONE refrigerated pie dough crust, and that should be enough to make this peach galette!

IF I use a store bought pie crust , what do I do with the cottage cheese?

Hi Nancy! You won't need the cottage cheese as it's an additive for the dough! Good luck!
