TWD - Summer Fruit Galette

I wanted to make a mini version of this, so I just gathered a few apricots, plums, one peach, and one nectarine. Once I had this all cut up, I realized it would not fit in as small of a galette as I had imagined. I made a... probably 7 inch galette with all of that. I am dying to see how the rest of you fit 8-9 of EACH FRUIT into a 9 inch galette!! **** I also didn't totally get on board with this custard thing. I added some to it, but I think I would have liked it better without. I found the fresh fruit to be a much better photographic subject than the cooked galette, so today you get more raw fruit than galette :-)

I enjoyed this galette much more than the cherry apple cobbler, and much more than I expected myself to. I honestly don't think I've ever had an apricot before, so this was a new flavor for me. Overall, I enjoyed it for what it was, but didn't love it.

yum, yum, yum, YUM!!! There is NOTHING better in the summer than a fresh fruit galette and ice cream. LOVE it!

Bridget said...

Heh...TPOX...it's 8-9 pieces of fruit total, not of each. She says "or" toward the end of the fruit list.

Thanks Bridget - apparently I can't read!! I was seriously wondering how she fit that much fruit in there!

Your galette is beautiful and the colors of the fruits you've chosen really shine through, even after baking.

Susie Homemaker said...

Gorgeous color - and about the amount of fruit...well, I think LOTS of people misinterpreted that!!

Personally I think the cooked galette is beautiful!

And I'm DYING over 8-9 fruits versus 8-9 pieces

I read it as 8-9 pieces of one fruit and I still didn't fit it all in. Looks great.

Engineer Baker said...

Wow, that'd be a LOT of fruit! I'm glad you got to try apricots, they're a very tasty fruit, IMO.

Christine said...

Your galette looks beautiful and I love the colors! I lol about the fruit!

Pamela said...

It looks great, and the picture of the peaches is really pretty. Sorry you didn't love it. I guess we won't love 'em all, right?

Your crust looks great!

CB said...

Sorry I had to giggle at mis-read. I can't tell you how many times I've done that! Bummer you didn't try the custard. I loved it with mine. Give it a try next time!

Your galette looks delicious!

Jules Someone said...

Pretty is overrated. Delicious is what matters.

Barbara said...

I'm totally with Jules here!

Several other folks made the same assumption you did about the amount of fruit! Lots of fruit going on top of cereal or into freezers this week, I guess!
