Tuesdays With Dorie: Summer Fruit Galette

July 29, 2008

I’m back! This week’s recipe is Summer Fruit Galette, chosen by Michelle of Michelle in Colorado Springs (she has the recipe if you want to try it for yourself). Once again I have to admit that #1 Son did the honors, cutting the recipe in half and making a lovely half-circle of summery, fruity goodness. He used half peaches, half nectarines.


Now, I’m already on record as not liking fruit-based desserts. I didn’t even try that blueberry pie a few weeks ago, the one that everyone, both in my family and here at TWD, raved about. But I had some of the galette. Oh, yes, I did. And it was marvelous.

I won’t go so far as to say it made me like fruit, but I’m certainly more inclined to give it a chance in the future.

Go check out what the other TWD bakers did with this one — it’s sure to be a treat.

    With enough sugar and butter, even the healthiest of foods can be appealing! Glad you’re coming around to fruit desserts, even just a little :-p

    You did a beautiful job. I’m glad you tried this one, we liked it, too. I think I would eat about anything enclosed in this pie crust, though 😉
