If you are in need  of a quick seasonal dessert, this summer fruit galette is the perfect answer. I pulled a round of pastry out of the freezer that was leftover from that Perfect Cherry Pie last week and had this delicious galette in the oven in no time.

This one used the fruit that I had on hand at the time but you can mix up the mix of fruits and berries to suit your taste or what’s in season. Blueberries, raspberries, cherries and nectarines are all also good choices. A big scoop of good vanilla ice cream goes amazingly well too.

The photo above shows this simply constructed rustic tart ready for the oven. The slice below served as my breakfast this morning which gave me the thought that this would be a fantastic dessert for a summer weekend brunch too.

I like the pastry to be pretty thick so that the slices can actually be hand-held, which is great if you want to take it along on a picnic too.

2016 update

I am still making these simple fruit galettes all the time throughout the summer months. This Peach and Blueberry Galette was made in late July of this year with the first basket of fresh Ontario peaches I purchased for the season.

Summer Fruit Galette - a super simple recipe to use whatever summer fruits and berries are on hand in a quick dessert that's perfect with a scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream.

Ingredients

For the Butter Pastry

  • 1 cup very cold butter cut in small cubes
  • 2 ½ cups flour
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup ice water, Only enough to make a dough form.
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the galette filling

  • 1 1/2 cups halved strawberries
  • 1 cup plum slices
  • 1 cup peach slices
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 rounded tbsp corn starch
  • pinch salt

Instructions

To prepare the Butter Pastry

  1. Using a food processor or a pastry blender cut cold butter into flour, brown sugar and salt until mixture resembles a coarse meal. Small pieces of butter should still be visible.
  2. Pour vanilla into cold water then pour over the mixture and work in by tossing with a fork until dough begins to form. Use your hands as little as possible and work the dough as little as possible.
  3. Divide dough into 2 balls, flatten into 2 rounds, wrap in plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to rest for a minimum of 20 minutes. You can freeze the second pastry round to use another time. You can make your dough the previous day but make sure you take it out of the fridge for 10 minutes to warm slightly before rolling out.
  4. Roll the dough into a 12 inch round and place it on a parchment lined cookie sheet.

For the galette filling,

  1. Toss together the fruit with the cornstarch and pinch of salt.
  2. Pile the fruit mixture in the center of the pastry and then just simply bring the edges of the dough up over the fruit, overlapping and gathering the pastry as needed to form about a 2 1/2 inch edge crust.
  3. Bake at 375 degrees F for about 40 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the fruit is bubbling at the center. Allow to cool for at least a half hour before cutting.

Can frozen fruit be used if no fresh is available? If so, should it be thawed first? Thank you.

I have just baked two of these fabulous galettes in the past 2 days (one to share with our friends last evening and one just for us) Outstanding pastry crust and a wonderful way to use up the fresh fruit in the fridge!! The recipe is easy to follow and is now another Rock Recipe that has been incorporated into my menu rotation!! Thanks Barry,
