TWD: Summer Fruit Galette




This week's Tuesdays with Dorie selection is from Michelle of Michelle in Colorado Springs. She chose for us to bake the Summer Fruit Galette from Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan. You can find the recipe here. For my galette I decided to use some nectarines that were on sale at my local market. I used apricot preserves and gingersnaps instead of graham crackers as well.



Notes: I found this recipe to be fairly simple. I used my food processor to make the pie crust, which is, in my opinion, the easiest way to make a pie crust from scratch. I wasn't able to fit near as much fruit as the recipe calls for. I only used about 5 nectarines for my galette, and it seemed like enough. Additionally, I was only able to get about 4 tablespoons of the custard mixture into the fruit. Nice, simple summer dessert that I am sure I will try again with many different combinations of fruit.

Lovely, especially with the dusting of powdered sugar & the mint leaves! Gingersnaps, what a great idea!

Looks great, Sarah! I'm going to try it with the plums from my tree when they get ripe at the end of the month. Yummm!
