1x 14oz / 390g package frozen puff pastry
3 cups peach slices(about 2-3 medium peaches)
1 cup fresh blackberries
2 tbsp granulated sugar
1 tbsp all purpose flour
1 egg, beaten with 1 tbsp milk
1 tbsp apricot jam
½ tbsp hot water
Optional: coarse sugar
Servings: 6-8 slices
Preparation: 10 minutes (plus 2 hours to defrost the puff pastry)
Total Time: 40 minutes (plus 2 hours to defrost the puff pastry)
Kitchen Equipment: baking sheet, parchment paper
- Preheat the oven to 425F.
- Prepare the puff pastry dough: Roll out the puff pastry dough to flatten any ridges. Then, cut the dough into a rough 14 inch wide circle. Place the dough on a large parchment lined baking sheet.
- Prepare the fruit filling: In a medium mixing bowl, gently toss the blackberries and peach slices together with 2 tbsp sugar and 1 tbsp all purpose flour.
- To prepare the galette: Evenly scoop the fruit filling into the center of the puff pastry circle, leaving any juices in the bottom of the mixing bowl (that could make the galette too soggy). Leave about a 2 inch border of puff pastry dough around the fruit. Then, gently fold the edges of the puff pastry dough over the filling, overlapping the dough slightly as you go, leaving much of the fruit filling exposed. Press gently to seal all the edges.
- Beat the egg with 1 tbsp milk and brush the crust edges with the egg mixture. Then, sprinkle the dough with coarse sugar if desired.
- Place the prepared galette into the fridge for 10 minutes.
- After 15 minutes, remove from the refrigerator and put in the oven to bake for 25-30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
- Mix together the apricot jam and hot water. After you remove the galette from the oven, brush the apricot jam mixture over the fruit and then set the galette aside to cool slightly.
- Enjoyed best on the day it’s baked and served with vanilla gelato or ice cream.
