TWD: Summer Fruit Galette

Author: swampkitty05  //  Category: Food Blogging Event, Food Porn


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.

    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!

    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.
