Instructions
  1. One of my favorite things about Summer would have to be all the delicious peaches that are in season. I'm not joking when I say I might eat a peach a day during Summer. I love cooking and baking with peaches and this recipe is so easy and delicious. This dough can be very versatile and you can really put whatever you want in the middle whether it's sweet or savory. The first thing you want to do is mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl. To the dry ingredients, using your fingers, "snap" the butter in so that the dry ingredients and butter are mixed together. It will look like coarse cornmeal. If you have a food processor use that! It will definitely make this easier for you. If not, the old fashioned way will have to do. To the flour mixture add the buttermilk and mix until the dough comes together and you can form it into a ball. Wrap it up with plastic wrap and pop in the refrigerator to let chill for 1 hour or more. I like to make it the night before I use it to make it easy! When it's time to make your galette preheat your oven to 375*F. Lightly flour your counter and put your dough on the flour. Roll out the dough so it's roughly a 14 inch circle. Don't worry about it being perfect.. when you fold the edges over you won't even tell! Plus, it makes it more... rustic? Yes, we'll go with rustic. Put your dough on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper and set aside while you make the filling. Take your peach and cut it in half. Twist off the peach to expose the pit. With a knife cut along the seed so it comes out. Slice the peaches in 8 and add to the bowl. To the bowl add the blueberries, sugar, cornstarch, salt, and lemon juice. Toss it all together so everything is combined. Add all the fruit to the middle of the circle. Gently fold the pastry over the fruit, pressing the dough into evenly spaced pleats to enclose the fruit. Lightly whisk and egg and brush over the pastry and sprinkle with sugar. Put in the oven and let cook for 45-50 minutes until the crust is browned and the juices are bubbling. Take out of the oven to let cool slightly. Slice and serve with ice cream! Ta-da! A delicious summer dessert that anyone would swoon over.

    Peaches are so versatile! You can grill them, bake them, eat them raw, stew them, poach them (like a wild boar) and use the pips for gaedrn/vase decorations or mulch in your veggie gaedrn. Or just suck on the endlessly throughout the day Thank you, cupcake princess!
