It’s been happening on repeat since Adam first whipped it up at a dinner party a few summers back. Made with the most perfect pie crust, loaded with farmers market berries that are piled on top of a frangipane layer and then served with some creme fraiche…. HE IS A GENIUS!!!!

OMG. It’s a game changing / life altering / sinfully delicious dessert that will make you so happy you won’t even know what to do with yourself. It’s also totally delicious with vanilla ice cream, but let’s be honest here – what isn’t delicious with a scoop or two of ice cream!

Mixed Berry Peach Galette

Ingredients

    For the Crust
  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose
  • 4 tablespoons of leaf lard, cut into various small pieces pea to walnut size
  • 4 tablespoons (good quality) butter, cut into various small pieces pea to walnut size
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3-4 tablespoons of ice water
  • For the Frangipane filling
  • 4 ounces almond paste
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp butter, room temp
  • 1/2 teaspoon maldon salt
  • 1 tablespoon rum
  • 1 egg yolk
  • For the Fruit
  • 3 peaches, sliced
  • 2 cups mixed berries
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • squeeze of lemon juice
  • tablespoon of corn starch
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • pinch of salt
  • For the egg wash
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon of water

Instructions

    For the Crust
  1. Combine all dough ingredients except the ice water in a large bowl. With clean hands, blend the mixture together until it looks like coarse meal with some lumps in it.
  2. Sprinkle ice water over mixture and stir lightly with a fork. Squeeze a handful of dough together. If it doesn't keep together, add a bit more water.
  3. Form the dough into a chubby disk about 5 inches across. Wrap the disk in plastic wrap and chill for about an hour. Once chilled, take out the disk and put it on a well floured board. Sprinkle some flour onto the top of the disk. Thump the disk with your rolling pin several times. Turn it over and thump the other side. Sprinkle more flour onto the top of the crust if needed to keep the pin from sticking and roll the crust out from the center in all directions so it's about 11 inches in diameter.
  4. Carefully transfer the rolled out dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  5. For the Frangipane filling
  6. Combine the almond paste and sugar in a food processor and blend until smooth. Add the butter, salt, rum and egg yolk and process until everything is incorporated. Remove the mixture from the food processor and use a spatula to spread the mixture on the dough in a circle, leaving about 2 inches un-covered.
  7. For the Fruit
  8. Combine all the ingredients for the fruit section in a bowl and toss together. Transfer the fruit on top of the frangipane layer.
  9. Gently fold the crust over the fruit, pleating to hold it in. Brush the crust generously with egg wash mixture and sprinkle some extra sugar on the crust.
  10. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes, until the filling bubbles up vigorously and the crust is golden. Cool for at least 30 minutes on wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature with a dollop of creme fraiche or vanilla ice cream.

  1. This looks so heavenly! I’ve never tried frangipane before, but I’ve had my eye on frangipane tarts for years now. I think I’ve finally found the perfect recipe to try it out!

  2. Oh wow, what a stunner! Will def be whipping up one of these babies this weekend! Thanks for posting Gaby!

  3. This is beautiful! I love all these fruits! I will be making mine even more decadent with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!!!

  4. I love making galettes, Gaby, and often combine peaches, nectarines, or apricots with berries. What is a good substitute for the lard? I don’t cook with any pork products. Just use all butter? (When I want less fuss, I combine ground nuts, a bit of sugar, and a little flour and spread that on the crust to absorb the fruit juices.)

  5. Ok! So I made it and it’s in the oven! I followed all of your instructions and my dough was all crumbly so I added more water until it wasn’t anymore. After if was refrigerated for an hour it crumbled when I rolled it out?? Any advice for me next time?

    Also, how do you feel about arrow root instead of corn starch??
