TWD: Summer Fruit Galette


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.
