This Rustic Peach Tart is dotted with fresh blueberries for an exquisite, stress free dessert!

I have endlessly droned on about my quest to find the perfect pie crust. Meaning a crust that tastes amazing and is a cinch to flute, weave or any other maneuver that I happen to dream up!

But when it’s a muggy summer day and time is tight, I just forget the prospect of a double crust pie and turn to a trusty galette. A galette, you might query. What is a galette? Basically it’s a rustic, one crust tart where the edge of a pastry round is folded partially over your filling. This one happens to be a delightful peach blueberry galette!

How to Make a Galette

I go crazy for fresh, juicy summer peaches. We get imports from Georgia and South Carolina in early July. So peach desserts are often on the menu from July through early September. An easy peach galette is always a good choice.

  • Look for local produce. It is picked at its prime and doesn’t need to be transported from state to state.
  • I buy Indiana Red Havens when they’re available in July.
  • If you dare make a homemade crust, this pastry recipe is easy to roll into a nice round. A store bought crust is always an easy shortcut.
  • Lightly flour your rolling pin and work surface. Roll the pin over the round of dough, then rotate the dough, and repeat. Keep rotating about 45º each time until your dough is a 12-inch round.
  • PRO-Tip: If you’d like your crust to be perfectly round, use a large, 12-inch diameter mixing bowl as a template. Place it over the dough round. Trim around the edge of the bowl and discard the scraps.
  • Start arranging the peach slices from the inside out, stopping about 1 to 1 1/2-inches from the edge.
  • The edge will be folded up over the fruit to contain the juices, so do not place the fruit all the way across the dough’s surface.
  • Sprinkle the blueberries across the peaches, then fold the edge of the crust over the fruit, one section at a time, pleating as you go.
  • Brush the exposed crust with egg white, then sprinkle both the crust and filling with sugar if desired.
  • Bake as directed and serve slices warm or at room temperature, topped with sweetened whipped cream or ice cream!

There are more fragrant, and oh, so juicy peaches sitting on my counter! This galette took only 3 peaches and a half cup of blueberries. And the crust is a breeze to roll out. Bill went back for seconds after dinner. Yup, it’s that tasty!

Peach Blueberry Galette

A scrumptious dessert featuring peaches and blueberries and a buttery pastry crust!

  • Author: Liz Berg
  • Prep Time: 30 mins
  • Cook Time: 50 mins
  • Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x
  • Category: Dessert, Tart
  • Method: Baking
  • Cuisine: American

Ingredients

Crust:

  • 1 1/2 cups flour, plus more for rolling
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 11 tablespoons cold butter, cut into 1/2 tablespoon pieces, I used Land o’ Lakes
  • 1 egg yolk (reserved white to glaze dough)
  • 3 tablespoons milk

Filling:

  • 2 cups peeled and sliced fresh peaches (about 1 pound)
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 egg white, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons sugar (coarse sugar preferred but granulated is fine)

Instructions

  1. To make the dough, combine the flour, sugar, and salt in a food processor and pulse to combine. Add the butter to the flour and pulse till butter is broken into small pieces and mixture resembles cornmeal. Mix together the egg yolk and milk and add to dough. Pulse till the dough comes together. Pour out onto a piece of plastic wrap and press into a flat disk. Wrap and chill for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. Carefully toss the peaches and blueberries with the sugar, flour, and salt.
  4. Roll out the dough to a 12-inch round on a lightly floured surface. Carefully move dough to the baking sheet. Arrange the fruit in the center of the dough, leaving about an inch of the perimeter uncovered. Fold the outside edge of the dough over the fruit, pleating as needed. Brush egg white over the exposed crust. Sprinkle the coarse sugar over the dough and fruit.
  5. Bake the galette until the crust turns a light brown and the filling bubbles, about 50 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes then cut and serve warm with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, if desired.

  26. Galettes are my favorite in the summer – this is just beautiful!

  27. You have another winner here Liz! I’ve made one galette and it was peach. It was also much easier than making a traditional pie. Farmers Market here I come!

  28. Don’t have the blueberries on hand but do have all the other ingredients. Since the blue berries are just two blocks away, I’ll pick them up after church and bake this. Right, it’s easy. And, our peaches are wonderful right now. I’ve just been making peach pies – who doesn’t love them – so this will be a treat for me. And, I have no problem eating this leftover for breakfast.

  29. Such a gorgeous galette, this is perfect for when I don’t have the time for a pie – love your pairing of sweet peaches and blueberries too!

  33. Wow Wow and Wow! I’ve never made a Galette, but I’ve always wanted to. I’ll admit I’m a tad bit intimidated and it’s totally out of my comfort zone but that’s usually where I shine. I love the combinations of peach and blueberries, so delicious.

  34. Making this galette today with a light walnut crumble to top it. Never done a galette before but it looks simple and rustic. It also yields a higher pastry to fruit ratio than traditional pie, which is a plus in my book, as I love a good pie pastry.
