This Rustic Honeyed Peach Galette is no fuss and so easy! It has a crispy, flaky crust and in the middle lies the sweetest, juiciest baked peaches. Add on some homemade whipped cream and you’re set for a wonderful Summer dessert!
I just love peaches sooooo much you guys. I can’t get over them this Summer! I keep eating them like candy. They’re THAT GOOD. Not to mention, they are definitely the prettiest fruit to ever exist. I mean, LOOK AT THEM!
This Rustic Honey Peach Galette is basically an open faced peach pie with way less work. The pie crust gets extra flaky, buttery and golden brown. It has an amazing crunch thanks to the extra sprinkle of turbinado sugar. The inside gets sooo juicy, gooey and basically like peach preserves.
This dessert has just the right amount of sweetness with a subtle hint of honey throughout. I piled it high with whipped cream and went to town. Literally, it was hard not to eat it all in one setting. Sounds awesome right? Let’s get into it!
What You’ll Need:
- refrigerated pie crust
- fresh peaches (yes, fresh! ain’t nobody got time to use canned peaches)
- turbinado sugar (you know, the coarse extra crunchy stuff!)
- egg wash (aka one egg beaten)
If the ingredient list doesn’t convince you on just how easy this dessert is….let me go on!
How to Make It!
First things first, slice those peaches! I prefer them in long slices rather than in chunks – it makes the galette much prettier! Next, add them to a large bowl. Add in a litttttle bit of that turbinado sugar and the cornstarch to make them extra gooey.
Next, spread out your pie crust onto your baking sheet. I rolled mine out a little bit more to give some extra room for all of my peaches. I recommend doing that!
Pile all of those delicious gooey yellow peaches into the middle of the pie crust. I ended up leaving about 1.5-2 inches of pie dough to fold over the fruit. Feel free to just fold it normally over the fruit. However, each fold that you do, make sure you pinch the seams of the dough together. This will ensure that the peaches are going to live happily ever after and bake in the middle of the crust and not all over the baking sheet!
Next, brush it with your egg wash and sprinkle it generously with turbinado sugar. The egg wash will ensure that your crust will become golden brown and the sugar will ensure that crispy goodness.
And that’s it! Place it in the oven to bake and go catch up on your fave TV show. Or read a book. I’m currently obsessed with The Chronicles of Narnia series right now. Will I ever grow out of reading children’s books? Probably not.
Once it’s done, it should have an ooey gooey center from the juice of the peaches breaking down. The crust should be flaky and golden. The crunch of the goldenness and the turbinado sugar really add to the flavor of the entire dish.
Drizzle with honey, add some extra sugar if you want and you’re all set! Eat immediately with homemade whipped cream or vanilla ice cream if you really love yourself.
Some questions you may have…
Can I use a homemade pie-crust?
Absolutely! I just wanted to keep this recipe super duper simple and I know that store bought pie crusts, to me, are pretty similar to homemade.
How do I make the homemade whipped cream?
Glad you asked! For me, I just added about ¼-1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream into a medium sized bowl and whisked and whisked and whisked some more. It will eventually turn into cream and you’ll get a good arm workout! But in all seriousness, feel free to use a mixer to alleviate your arms and to speed up the process. Lastly: I didn’t add any additional sugar to the whipped cream. The cream just the way it is gives this galette a wonderful peaches and cream vibe that doesn’t need any extra sugar to vamp it up!
Can I use any fruit?
Sure! Any stone-fruit would work well, as well as berries. However, I really do love the peaches in this recipe. Since they’re so sweet and in-season, they truly shine.
Alright guys, that’s all for now. Please make this recipe this weekend. It’s wonderful and crispy and sweet and delicate and beautiful. Yes. Happy weekend! XO.
Rustic Honey Peach Galette
This Rustic Honeyed Peach Galette is a no fuss, easy as pie dessert. It has a crispy, flaky crust and in the middle lies the sweetest, juiciest baked peaches. Add on some homemade whipped cream and you’re set for a wonderful Summer dessert!
- 3 large peaches, sliced
- 1 pre-made refrigerated pie crust
- 1 egg, beaten
- 2 tbsp turbinado sugar, divided
- 1 tbsp cornstarch
- honey (for drizzling)
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Slice your peaches into long thin slices. Add to a large bowl with 1 tbsp turbinado sugar and 1 tbsp of cornstarch. Mix very gently until combined.
Slightly roll out your refrigerated pie dough onto a baking sheet. Place the peaches in the middle of the pie crust, leaving about 1.5-2 inches of pie dough to fold over the fruit.
Take the pie dough and gently fold it over the fruit, pinching the seams each time you fold to make sure the peaches are held inside. Brush the outside crust gently with egg wash and sprinkle with 1 tbsp of turbinado sugar.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Drizzle honey on top of the galette once done. Enjoy warm and with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or homemade whipped cream (see notes)
Homemade Whipped Cream: Take 1/4 or 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream and place into a large bowl. Whisk vigorously by hand until whipped cream begins to form. Add additional sugar if desired.
