Peach and Blueberry Galette

peach and blueberry tart recipeIf you are trying to squeeze the last bits out of summer, make a peach pie. What says summer more than a peach pie? I saw this peach almond galette in the July issue of Country Living and immediately made it. The original recipe only uses peaches, but I didn’t have enough to fill the pie, so I added blueberries. What makes this galette special is that there is a layer of almond paste on the bottom. I love almond anything, so I knew that it would be interesting. I also like that it is supposed to be messy looking. This is a very rustic looking dessert. In my book, it looks homemade. Homemade looking things just taste better.

      thanks Diane!

    This looks beautiful! Peaches and blueberries are always a great combination. Love the rustic look too. I’m afraid most of my pies have that ‘look’.

    1. bakedbree

      Me too my friend, me too.

  3. Kelley {mountain mama cooks}

    Oh how I love the galette. Allowing those of us who can not make a “pretty” pie feel redeemed. The more rustic the better, right? The peaches are just starting to peak here!

    1. bakedbree

      lol… my pies usually taste good, but look good? Not so much.

  4. Georgia @ The Comfort of Cookign

    The combination of peach and blueberry is one of my favorites! What a gorgeous galette and lovely photos to accompany it. Thanks for sharing this mouthwatering recipe, Bree!

      thank you Georgia!

    Your photos are beautiful. My apartment does not have a large window to let generous amount of light in. I end up spending hours on Lightroom to fix my photos. Next time I look for a place, this will be my top priority.

    1. bakedbree

      Try moving your food out of the kitchen. Push the food as close to the window as possible and use a white reflector to help bounce.

  6. Caroline @ chocolate and carrots

    Ummm, what?!? That looks amazing Bree!

    1. bakedbree

      LOL Caroline!

  7. Kristen

    Wow! That looks beautiful!!! Do you think that I could use blackberries instead of blueberries?

    P.S, Awhile back I made your Mexican Chocolate Cake w/Cinnamon Mascarpone Frosting into cupcakes for a function. One of the girlfriends that was there asked them to bring them to her birthday dinner in place of a birthday cake.

    1. bakedbree

      Absolutely! Glad that your friend loved the Mexican Chocolate Cake so much!

    Thanks for sharing this recipe. I’ve been thinking for a lil’ different dessert to try. I found your post affordable since I always stock blueberries, they’re my fave.

    1. bakedbree

      Me too. I always have blueberries in my freezer. Glad that you found it.
