1 package pie crust, chilled
2 large peaches, sliced and peeled
2 large apples, sliced and peeled (gala preferred)
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon cornstarch
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
Pinch of salt
Egg wash (1 egg whisked with 1 tablespoon water)
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
2 tablespoons demerara or brown sugar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the peaches, apples, lemon zest, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, cornstarch, sugar and salt until fruit is well coated.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pie crust. Arrange peaches and apples in a ring in the center of the dough, leaving a 2-inch border of dough all around.
Brush the egg wash around the border of the pie. Fold up the edges of the dough, overlapping and crimping as you go. Brush the melted butter on the apples and peaches. Brush the outside of the crust with the egg wash. Sprinkle demerara sugar on the fruit and dough.
Place galette in the middle of your oven. Bake for 55 minutes until the dough is crisp and golden brown. Allow the galette to cool on a wire rack before serving.

- Galettes are a super easy dessert for those non-bakers out there. Hello! Me. They're versatile, and you can literally use any fruits that you have in your fridge. Let me show you how you make it. In a bowl, I have two apples I've peeled and sliced and a peach. I'm finishing up my last peach over here. Just nice even slices so it cooks through. I'm not the best baker in the world, but one thing I will say about galettes is that they're super simple, and they can make it look like you're a baker. Alright, let's go ahead and start by putting everything that we need for our filling in our bowl. So, a pinch of salt, some lemon zest, lemon juice, some granulated sugar, a little bit of cornstarch, and what this is gonna do, it's gonna thicken it up so it's nice and jammy in the middle, a little bit of cinnamon, and last but not least, a little nutmeg. Alright, now we're gonna go ahead and combine this all together. It smells so freaking good. What I love about galettes is that they're super simple, easy, and you can make them with any fruit. So, whatever fruit's in season, go ahead and throw that in there, and it'll work just the same. My filling is ready. I'm gonna go ahead and set this to the side and work on my crust. For my crust, we're gonna go ahead and sprinkle our board with some flour, and I have some store-bought pie crust. Your girl's not a baker, so any single time I make this dessert, I just buy store-bought. It saves me a lot of stress. No worries. Alright, hit this with a little flour. I'm gonna go ahead and just roll it out just a little bit, nothing crazy. You don't want it to be too thick 'cause then you're just gonna get a big mouthful of crust, but not too thin where when you pull out a slice, it falls apart. So, this is kind of the consistency that you want, and now, it's time to fill it up. Leave about a two-inch border around 'cause that's where we're gonna crimp our edges, and we're gonna go apple slice by peach slice, and I'm gonna work my way around. You can also make mini ones for your friends, so everyone can have an individualized one, or just make a huge one, and let everyone pick at it. And then when you get to the center, just gonna go ahead and keep turning inwards. Alright, there we go. So, now that our filling is beautifully laid out, we've gotta make it food porn, right? We're gonna go ahead and grab some egg wash, and I'm gonna egg wash the edge of my pie crust, and this is gonna help when I'm crimping it to keep it together. You're gonna go ahead pick it up and fold, pinch, move on. And you're just gonna continue that all the way around. The pie is almost ready to go into the oven, but not quite yet. We're gonna hit it with egg wash, and what that's gonna do is make it nice and golden brown when it bakes off into the oven. And then, hit it with some sugar. This is demerara sugar. This is nice and thick sugar, and it looks beautiful on baked desserts. Last but not least, we're gonna put a little bit of melted butter on top of our fruit. Let's go ahead and put it on our sheet tray. Be very gentle with this. Slide it off. Alright, I'm gonna go ahead and put this in the oven at 400 degrees. Alright, my galette is nice and cooled down. I'm gonna go ahead and carefully slide it off, and let's cut a little slice. Oh man, all those peaches and apples are nice and caramelized already. Flaky crust. Get a nice little slice over here. There you go. I'm gonna serve this with a little dollop of cream and some fresh mint. There you have it, guys. Here's my peach and apple galette. Super simple, easy, and versatile. I hope you love it as much as I do.
