Sunday Sweets: Peach & Raspberry Galette

Description of Photo It's no secret that I have a raging sweet tooth. Desserts are like the exclamation point at the end of a sentence; not always neccesary but SO MUCH MORE FUN! With summer in full swing and gorgeous fruit every where you turn I thought I'd whip up a little rustic galette for after dinner. I was inspired by this recipe and used this recipe for my pie crust.

Description of Photo What you'll need:

For the filling:
- 2 ripe peaches, peeled and sliced.
- Handful of raspberries
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 3 TBSP flour
- 1 egg beaten, to brush on crust

For the crust:
- 1 1/4 c. flour
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 c. chilled butter, diced
- 1/4 c. ice water

1. Mix flour & salt together in large bowl. Cut in butter until mixture forms crumbs. Stir in ice water 1 TBSP at a time until dough forms a ball. Wrap in plastic and let chill in refridgerator for 4 hours or, even better, overnight.
2. After dough has chilled, roll out to about 11 in. Preheat oven to 375*.
3. In large bowl, combine cinnamon, sugar & flour.
4. Toss in fruit and coat evenly.
5. Place your rolled out dough onto parchment paper covered baking sheet.
6. Pour filling, leaving extra juice in bowl, onto the center of your dough.
7. Fold edges of the dough up and over the fruit, overlapping as you go.
8. Brush the crust with beaten egg.
9. Bake for about 45 minutes or until crust is golden and mixture is bubbling.
10. Let cool for 10 min and slice into wedges.
