I can’t think of a better summer dessert than a stone fruit galette with a scoop of fresh vanilla ice cream… I mean nothing looks, smells, or tastes more like summer! I won’t lie, I used a beautiful Whole Foods pastry fresh (wink wink) from the freezer. It made the assembly so quick and easy that I’m confident I could do it any night of the week. It’s also a super great thing to bring to a summer BBQ or to impress dinner guests! If you’d like to make your own pie crust, I’d recommend Bon Appétit’s, but for a healthier rendition, the Minimalist Baker’s looks tasty!

Recipe for Perfect Peach Galette (adapted from Martha Stewart)

Ingredients

  • 4-5 ripe peaches (or any stone fruit)
  • 1/3 cup raw turbinado sugar (+ more for sprinkling)
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp coarse salt
  • 1 tbs arrowroot starch
  • 1 perfect pie crust (recommendations above)
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil, then parchment. Stir together fruit, raw sugar, lemon juice, salt, and arrowroot starch.
  2. Transfer the pie crust to the baking sheet and lay flat. Arrange fruit in center, leaving a 2-inch border. Fold over border to enclose fruit, leaving center open. Brush crust with egg, and sprinkle with additional raw sugar.
  3. Bake until golden brown and bubbling in center, about 45 minutes, then enjoy with fresh ice cream!
