Memorial Day has passed, and it’s currently 90 degrees in Chicago as I type this, so I would say we’re pretty much into summertime. Which means that it’s time to enjoy all those delicious stone fruits — especially peaches and cherries! This cherry peach galette highlights those fruits beautifully, and best of all it’s incredibly easy! How is it so easy, you ask? Here’s the secret: store-bought pie crust.

Let’s talk about Galette Crust

A galette is the term for a certain type of freeform, single crust pie that can be made with puff pastry, a sweet pastry crust, or even yeast risen dough like brioche. It’s up to you, and part of the beauty of a galette is that they’re all unique. So variations are welcomed and imperfections are perfect! In this recipe, we’re making ours with a store-bought pie crust because as Tabitha Brown says, “that’s our business.”

You can certainly whip up a pie crust or use a puff pastry if you like, but I’m trying to maximize the ease of this recipe. And minimize my time spent in the kitchen near a preheating oven (did I mention it’s 90 degrees here?). I used a Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust, but if you have another favorite you like, feel free to use it and let me know in the comments!

What do I need for this Cherry Peach Galette recipe?

This galette comes together with just a handful of ingredients, most of which you’ll already have on hand!

  • peaches and cherries: the stars of the show!
  • granulated sugar: to sweeten our filling just a bit.
  • cornstarch: to thicken the filling up and prevent the galette from being too liquidy.
  • cinnamon: a touch of spice to balance out the sweetness.
  • lemon juice: to brighten up our peaches and cherries.
  • vanilla extract: adds a yummy vanilla flavor to the filling
  • a pie crust: the base of our galette
  • an egg, separated: used to coat the inside of our galette crust to prevent the filling from leaking AND as an egg wash to add color and shine to the top of the crust.
  • turbinado sugar: adds a satisfying crunch to our crust and some extra sweetness to our filling.
  • vanilla ice cream: optional, but not really.

Can I use frozen peaches and cherries?

You sure can! In fact, that’s what I did, since it’s been hard to get my hands on fresh fruit since grocery shopping isn’t as easy these days. Just make sure that you thaw the fruit fully in a colander over a bowl to drain out any excess juice!

**If you don’t have turbinado sugar, granulated sugar will work fine.
