Peach Galette - Gluten-Free!

It's that time of year when peaches in the South are ripening and we're lucky enough to get them up here in the North. Yum!  The great thing is, you can make this peach galette any time of the year - and you can use fresh, frozen or canned peaches.  For a more rustic look, you can leave the skin on your peaches, but make sure you give them a good wash and scrub first.  This is a wonderful dessert served with a bit of ice cream or vanilla yogurt on the side.  Enjoy!

Fresh from the oven!

Peach Galette
Serves 8

This recipe uses ½ of the gluten-free pie crust recipe, made with Kristin’s gluten-free flour mix, chilled 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 425F.  Line a baking/cookie sheet with parchment paper.

To prepare filling:
Mix together in a large bowl:
2 1/2 - 3 cups sliced peaches (canned & drained, frozen & thawed, or fresh peeled (or not) & sliced)
¼ cup sugar
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cardamom, optional adds a unique flavor to your galette

Roll out ½ batch of the gluten-free piecrust between pieces of plastic wrap until you have a circle approximately 12”-14” in diameter.  Remove the top layer of plastic wrap. Use a pizza cutter to trim the edges and neaten the circle.

Quickly turn the pie crust onto the prepared piece of parchment paper (on a cookie sheet).  Scoop the filling into the center of the pie crust, leaving a good 2 inches around the edges free of filling.  Using the parchment paper, carefully lift up in one spot to help fold the edges of the pie crust over the pie filling.  Move your hand to the right on the parchment paper and lift and fold again, repeating around the pie/galette until you have a neatly shaped galette. 

Sprinkle the top of the entire galette with additional sugar
Top the fruit with:
1 tsp butter, diced into 4-5 pieces
I popped on a few bits of butter after taking this picture before sticking it in the oven.

Bake at 425F for ~ 30 minutes, until the crust is nicely browned and the peaches are just bubbling. 
Remove from oven and put the tray on a cooling rack.   Cool and serve plain, or with whipped cream, ice cream, or vanilla yogurt, if desired.  Enjoy!
You can see you get a nice, clean slice once cooked.
