TWD: Summer Fruit Galette

twd

The recipe that Michelle in Colorado Springs chose for this week’s edition of Tuesdays with Dorie was a timely one, as I had a collection of stone fruit that I picked up this past weekend that really needed to be used up one way or the other. What I didn’t have, however, was a lot of time, so I took a short cut and used a Pillsbury crust. I really wish I would have had the time to make it from scratch, but that wasn’t in the cards.

Mixed Fruit Galette

The galette, despite using pre-made crust, was quite delicious. I find that too often fruit pies are too sweet – the custard topping lent just the right amount of sweetness to enhance the natural sweetness of the fruit, not overpower it. For the fruit, I used a combination of plums, peaches, and apricots. Fantastic, and we wiped it out (along with my mom having a piece) in one sitting. This one is a keeper.

  2. I couldn’t resist coming over from Whisk Wednesday to see what you did for Tuesdays with Dorie, and I have to say, THAT LOOKS FABULOUS. I am finding it difficult to resist the temptation to lick the screen of my monitor. Quit taking such excellent photos!

  3. It looks absolutely incredible. I agree, it’s a keeper. I’m going to be looking for excuses to make this.

  4. Here I sit dreaming of just a tiny piece. Whoops, looks like I have a bit of custard on my chin. Don’t wake me…

  5. You said it perfectly… the custard added a balance of sweetness without upstaging the fruit. Great job!

    I’ll miss your thoughtful commentary on future TWD assignments, but I wish you the best and I’ll continue to read along with your adventures.

  6. That’s a beautiful galette! Hope you have the time to try out Dorie’s pie crust sometime, it’s superb. Galettes are so fun and versatile!
