Ever since I made that apple galette a while back, I have wanted to make another one. The problem is I want to make a lot of things. What I really need to do is adopt 3 people who love sweets, and can eat everything as soon as I make it, allowing me to make more right away and fiddle with the recipe to see if I won't like it even better.
I bought peaches at the market last week that needed a touch more ripening. Here is my new peach-ripening trick. Set the peaches on a cotton cloth and cover them with another cloth. Within 48 hours or so they are ready. Worked like a charm. I whipped up a crust and got the skin off the peaches using that 40 second plunge in the boiling water, followed by 10 seconds in the ice water method. SUCCESS two times in a row with that by the way.
I rolled and sliced and arranged and dotted with butter and folded up the edges and popped it in the oven. There was an egg wash and a sugar sprinkle in there somewhere too.
Results: Delicious! Tender crust and flavorful juicy peaches. If you are eating it for dessert you might want some ice cream. I did. I found myself wishing it was just a touch sweeter... until I took a piece to work for breakfast. What I discovered after eating it cold for breakfast is that really this should be called Rustic Peach Breakfast Galette. Seriously. I like it better for breakfast. That will not stop me from eating it for both breakfast and dessert but for the future I will keep this on my radar for a perfect addition to a brunch menu. Instead of biscuits or scones. Trust me. I know of what I speak when it comes to breakfast.
