Gluten Free Peach Galette

Yes, this looks complicated. No, it really isn’t. The hardest part is cutting the fruit evenly. Don’t worry about pie pans or anything else. Gorgeous and delicious, try your hand at this.

Gluten Free Peach Galette

Ingredients:

1 1/2 pounds peaches, sliced 1/2 inch thick (4 3/4 cups)
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
1 tablespoon cornstarch or tapioca flour
1 pie crust, thawed or homemade
Gluten free all-purpose flour, for ( I used Whole Foods brand Gluten free pie crust)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
Sanding sugar (optional), for sprinkling
Whipped cream, for serving

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

In a large bowl, stir together the peaches, sugar, lemon juice, salt and cornstarch.
If you are using a ready-made pie crust, plop it out of the pie tin onto a piece of parchment paper. Cover with plastic wrap or another piece of parchment and roll to a 13″ circle.

If you do this in the middle of the parchment then you can transfer the galette right to the baking sheet to bake.  If you are using a homemade pie crust, place on parchment and roll out to a 13″ circle.

Place the fruit mixture in the middle of the pie crust leaving 2″ around the edge.

Carefully fold up the edge to cover part of the fruit as in the picture.

Beat the egg in a small bowl. Use a pastry brush and apply to the overlapping edges of the pie crust so it will brown and also hold onto the sugar. Sprinkle with the sanding sugar ( or regular sugar).

Bake until golden brown and bubbly about 1 hour and 10 minutes or so. If the crust is getting too brown on you, cover with a piece of aluminum foil to protect it.

Let cool 10 minutes on the baking sheet. Then transfer to a wire rack, still on the parchment paper, and let it cool completely.

Serve with whipped cream.

Makes 8 servings

If you want to use apricots for this, follow the recipe but stir in 1/2 cup sugar with the fruit instead of 1/3 cup of sugar.

I just love the look of this “pie”. It really looks like you ran by that awesome bakery everyone loves and snagged it. We need all the accolades we can get, so bask in them please 😉

Always trying to make you look good!

    I recently saw a crust made of rice. Sticky rice. It’s gluten-free. Kinda want to try this recipe with Forbidden rice, even though I don’t require gluten-free foods.
