July 29

This TWD is a Peach Galette.

I had to look up the definition of galette.

A galette is a fancy-schmancy way of saying ‘free form tart’.

Which also means no pie pan to wash.


This recipe called for some sort of jam to be spread in the bottom of the crust.

Some sort of jam that would correspond pleasantly to peaches.

What kind of jam corresponds to peaches?

Dorie suggested ginger preserves, and I thought ‘ooooOOOOOooooo that sounds delicious. I want some’.

Do you know that Pothole, Ohio does not have ginger preserves. at. all.?

I was so disappointed to be doing without the ginger preserves that I have never tasted before, never even heard of before.

So I sent the boy to the store with my debit card and said ‘get something that will match. I do not care what it is.’

He brought home some lovely seedless red raspberry preserves.

I did have doubts as to whether it would taste good or not. I shouldn’t have. It was divine.

I love that boy.

After you get your jam/preserves spread in the bottom, some lovely graham crackers sprinkled over that, you can add your fruit. You can use any fruit you like.

I chopped the required amount, but I found that it was just to much fruit to fit into my dough.

Then you get to add a lovely custard. I put some vanilla paste into mine. It just adds such a lovely flavor.

This free form tart galette is best eaten right out of the oven or at room temperature.

I tried it both ways, and right out of the oven is best. But don’t take my word for it, head on over to Michelle’s blog and get the recipe for yourself.

Michelle, thanks for picking a winner.

  1. Ooooo, this does look devine!! Where or where did you get those lovely peaches?! They’re so pretty! I have always wanted to make one of those panless pie things. Well, this is going on my to do list. First things first, find some devine peaches. 😀

  2. Let me tell you all…it was very good. I don’t know why CC didn’t believe me when I brought home the jam. I mean, Peach Melba has been around since the thirties. 🙂

  3. That looks absolutely divine. I love the idea of raspberry preserves/jam with peaches – that was a good choice The Boy 🙂 She should know to trust you on these things. 😆

    I’d love to make one of those but it will have to wait as my Tues and Wed are going to be full with no time to bake.

  4. Wow…yum!
    I just wanna say, your pictures are absolutely amazing!…My mouth is just starting to water at the sight of them.
    That stinks you couldnt get ginger preserves =/…but it’s fine, your not missing TOO much on that one. Any jam would probably be just fine!
    Great job!

  5. That is one seriously gorgeous free form tart, I mean galette. 😉 I also live in a geographical oddity that has never heard of half the things I want to try, including ginger preserves. *sigh*

  6. I checked at our grocery store yesterday but didn’t find any Ginger Preserves. There are a couple other places I could check, if you really would like them I wouldn’t mind looking and if I find them I’ll send them to you. The odds are pretty good I’d find some, our grocery store by our house is just small.

  7. I make that sort of dessert often, with apples or with a mixture of other fruit. I love not having to wash the pie pan! I’ll have to try adding some preserves – that sounds good.

    Looks like a winner, CC!

  8. No pie pan to wash. I like the way you think. 🙂

    And if you reply to this comment via email with where I can send it, I’d be happy to send you a jar of ginger preserves from our farmer’s market.
