I used to think chocolate desserts were my favorite, but I've changed my mind. I really LOVE fruit desserts. Especially when excellent, ripe, sweet fruit is involved. This galette is no exception. Dorie's original recipe is called Summer Fruit Galette, and she recommends peaches, nectarines, plums, apricots or rhubarb. I found some amazing peaches at the Farmer's Market, so that's what I chose to bake with. This reminds me of the apple crostada I LOVE to make in the Fall & Winter. If you are a pie lover but don't love to make pies...this could be one for you. The pastry is pretty easy to put together, and there is no "transfering to a pie plate." Just roll the pastry into a circle, fill the center with fruit, and wrap the pastry up around the edges. It is a very rustic, homemade looking dessert...and I LOVED it! It was a crowd pleaser!
You can visit Michelle in Colorado Springs for the complete recipe, and stop by the Tuesdays With Dorie blogroll...there were some AMAZING things done with this recipe!
Great pick Michelle!!
