You’ve heard the expression easy as pie, right? Well we have something even easier—a galette! Our fresh and juicy peaches take center stage in this Oregold® Peach Galette just in time for Peach Month.
Galette is a French term for a variety of flat round cakes often made with flaky, buttery pastry dough. Constructed as simply a free-form tart, these rustic treats have all the delicious flavors of a traditional pie without the fuss of that lattice-top crust.
This perfectly-imperfect summer dessert is great for entertaining, a last-minute hostess gift, or just a simple weeknight dessert with family.
Try serving this galette with ice cream to complement the warm, crispy crust. We promise you’ll be glad you did.
