Galettes are among my top favorite desserts to make since they’re so quick and easy to prepare. They’re also very versatile since you can use many different fruits for the filling. I made this gluten-free peach apple galette after our recent trip to the Okanagan Valley orchards. The freshly-picked peaches and apples worked very well together, but feel free to use one or the other or different fruits as you wish. Some of my favorites are peaches, apples, pears, plums, and even berries.
I love adding herbs like thyme to the fruits that add a delicate touch of flavor and fragrance to the galette. Fresh is best, but dried herbs also work.
For the gluten-free crust, I often use a mix of brown rice flour, almond flour, or buckwheat flour. They all work really well and yield a delicious nutty crust that balances out the sweetness of fruits. For best results, make sure all the crust ingredients are chilled and cold.
Have you tried making galettes before? If not, I hope you try this simple recipe and enjoy.
