Juicy peaches combined with a delicious gluten free almond crust make this almond peach galette the ideal summer dessert. Top with ice cream and enjoy outside after a BBQ for the perfect summer evening
Well I didn't mean to take almost an entire month off from blogging but somehow the time just got away from me. I went on vacation for a couple of weeks with my family and didn't do enough advanced planning to get blog posts out while I was away. But I have been busy the last couple of weeks planning new content, recipe testing and editing photos/videos for you! I am excited about some of the new recipes and tutorials I have coming your way. Starting with this Gluten Free Almond and Peach Galette. I've been into baking with fruit lately. Can you tell?
I have always wanted to make a galette. When ever I browse through Pinterest and one pops up in my feed I think I need to make one of those. I love their rustic look. All the deliciousness of a pie without the hassle of creating a beautiful looking crust. I decided to go with an almond flour crust to make the galette naturally gluten free. It took a couple of tries to get a good consistency on the crust that held together while baking. Since almonds are naturally oily - not much butter is needed for the crust. The crust is still a bit challenging to work with, as the more you work with it the more it begins to fall apart. I highly recommend starting with a well chilled crust and rolling the crust out onto parchment paper to avoid having to transfer it later.
Peaches are so sweet this time of year so I kept the amount of sugar to a minimum to allow the natural sweetness of the peaches to really shine through. Just add a scope of vanilla ice cream and you have the perfect summer dessert. Or top the galette with a some yogurt and you have a delicious breakfast or snack!
