Peach Galette - OMG one of the best things to do with peaches. Easy and delicious.
1 large sheet of puff pastry, defrosted
3-4 medium-sized peaches
1/4 cup sugar
Preheat the oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Roll out puff pastry briefly, just until it is about 1/8-inch thick. Transfer to parchment paper.
Cut peaches in half, remove pits and cut into 1/3 to 1/2-inch thick slices. No need to remove the skins from the fruit. Pile cut peaches into the center of the puff pastry and fold about 1-inch of the puff pastry sides over the edges of the peaches. Sprinkle the peaches and the exposed “crust” evenly with sugar.
Bake for about 25 minutes, or until galette is golden brown.
I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.
Dude... I cant find a single good peach this year . They're all unripe and hard. The few softer ones I find are usually just going bad and not sweet at all. It really sucks, peaches are supposed to be soft, sweet, and succulent, not pseudo-apples in texture :/ .
Whenever I have spare fruit I need to use up, I make a puff pancake and turn the fruit into compote to drizzle over top. You can cook down quite a lot of fruit into a compote.
4 large eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup all purpose flour
dash or two of your favorite spice- I use pumpkin pie mix
capful vanilla extract
dash of salt
hunk of butter
Preheat your oven to 450. Heat a skillet on the stovetop and melt the butter in it. Make sure the butter goes all over, up the sides of the pan too. Mix all the other ingredients together (you could peel and chop some peaches to add into the pancake itself here too) and pour into the skillet. Stick in the oven. Cook for 15 minutes, lower to 350, cook for 10 more minutes. When I turn down the heat I usually poke the pancake with a fork all over to make it deflate. It's cool to watch it puff up but if you deflate it at this point it will actually be more delicious when you eat it.
While the pancake is cooking, melt some butter in a saucepan and add sugar and an assload of peaches, peeled and diced up to about the size of the tip of your pinky finger. Simmer the hell out of it until it is like a chunky syrup. I can't really tell you how much of each ingredient to use, because I just wing it, but you can always add more of something as it cooks if you taste it and it's not right. I would fill the pan with peaches though. If you have too much compote you can just save it for regular pancakes or waffles another day.
Take the pancake out after it's done, pour some of the compote over half of it and fold the other half over like an omelette. Pour more compote on top. Eat. To me, this dish is even better after it cools and reheats. It would be easy to modify for a diabetic by using sugar substitute in the compote- I use xylitol most of the time anyway instead of sugar, which tastes exactly like it and is diabetic-friendly. It's pricey though.
