Peach and Blueberry Galette
A Galette, or a “Tarte Rustique” as we call it in France, is one of the easiest ways to showcase Summer fruits at their prime – and this Peach and Blueberry Galette is a perfect example of it. This rustic fruit tart features a flaky all-butter crust, folded in a free form manner over ripe Summer fruits. It is an uncomplicated dessert to make during these late-Summer nights, and it doesn’t require much time to assemble. A dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice-cream on top will make it even more irresistible.
