Peach Galette is the perfect Summer dessert! Flaky and scrumptious pie crust, almost like agiant shortbread cookie, filled with juicy and seasoned fresh peaches. Elegant French dessert, delicious, and easy to prepare.
Fresh Peaches vs. Canned Peaches
Although using fresh peach in making peach galette will result in a better-tasting dessert, you can use canned peach.
If you are to use canned peach, then make sure to drain it from the syrup and rinse it with water twice. You can later follow the recipe below.
You can also use frozen peaches instead, let the peaches thaw, pat them dry and follow the recipe instruction below.
Using a sweetener in making a peach galette
You can use brown sugar, white sugar, or even sweeteners to make a peach galette. In the recipe below, I am giving you the measurement for both sugar and sweeteners.
If you want to reduce the number of calories in this galette recipe, then use a sweetener, but refrain from using it if you never developed a taste for it.
The galette crust
There are a few things that you have to care for while making the crust, and it will be a success every time.
Do not over-knead or mix the dough.
Use chilled water.
Use chilled butter.
Rub the butter with the flour properly to avoid having dry spots on the crust.
Refrigerate the dough. Refrigerating the dough makes it easier to work with when you roll it out, it also helps the crust to bake evenly.
Making Peach Galette from Scratch.
I used Steviva Blend; it combines just the right amounts of stevia and erythritol, a sugar alcohol derived by microbial fermentation, to create a truly clean, scrumptious sweetener.
This product is great in baking, and you don’t have to use much. Using Steviva Blend in baking cuts the amount of sugar used in half. It reduces calorie intake tremendously.
With the regular sugar, you will use two tablespoons of sugar in the crust, but with Steviva Blend, you will only use one tablespoon with zero calories. Making this healthy choice, you saved 96 calories and added Zero carbs to this dessert.
Adding Steviva Blend in the crust and the filling resulted in similar sweetness as when using regular sugar. I then used Nectevia Agave Nectar, which comes in a syrup form to brush the center of Peach Galette while still warm to give it a glossy look.
