What To Serve With Easy Peach Apple Galette?
Galette is amazing on its own, but it gets even better with these epic combos:
I love working with fresh peaches, harnessing their juicy and vibrant essence to elevate the galette's taste. However, versatility is key, as you can absolutely embrace the option of frozen peaches. These little gems are available throughout the year, offering the taste of summer regardless of the calendar.
Tips For Using Frozen/Canned Peaches
If opting for a frozen approach, prioritize peaches without added sugar, and ensure a thorough thawing process before incorporation. Canned peaches, packed in their natural juices, are also a great choice—just give them a rinse and gentle pat to minimize excess moisture. Although their texture might slightly vary, they provide both convenience and a year-round hint of that cherished summer taste.

1(14 oz.) packagepremium puff pastry sheets(You may use two packages for a thicker/fuller crust; See Post for Homemade Crust details!)
1egg wash(That's 1 egg + 1 tablespoon milk)
2Tbspsorganic brown sugar
2organic Gala apples, sliced thin(See Post for best types of Apples to use)
3mediumpeaches, sliced thin(If using canned peaches, 2 (15oz.) cans drained, rinsed, + patted dry will do!)
½cuporganic brown sugar
1tablespoonorganic flour or arrowroot
Pinch ofsea salt
1tablespoonunsalted butter, cut into pieces
1teaspoonfreshly-squeezed lemon juice
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and lightly grease a medium 10-inch non-stick skillet with butter or oil.
TO MAKE THE FILLING:
In a large bowl, add the sliced apples + peaches and toss together with the lemon juice, brown sugar, flour or arrowroot, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, salt, and vanilla, mixing until combined and peaches + apples are fully coated.
Remove pastry sheets from packaging and roll out in the greased skillet, stretching it a bit all around so that you can fold upward. Spoon the peaches + apple filling (omitting the juices) into the center of the puff pastry and spread evenly. Then, tuck in the pieces of butter in between the peaches + apples. Using your hands, gently fold the excess dough upwards all around until they overlap and the galette becomes a nice circular shape in the skillet. NOTE: You can use 2 packages of puff pastry for a thicker/fuller crust if desired. You may only need 1 ½ of the pastry sheets if you do.
Lightly brush the tops + edges puff pastry crust with egg wash to create a nice seal, gently pressing the overlapped edges down so that it's "closed".
BAKE THE GALETTE:
Bake galette for 30-35 minutes or until the crust is golden brown + become puffy and the filling in the center is bubbling.
Once done, remove from the oven and allow it to cool slightly for 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving with your favorite ice cream or whipped cream.
