We are in love with a simple new to us way of enjoying fruit.
I can't wait to try it with apples!!
The best part is, it's like eating pie, without having to flute a crust (still working on that, wondering if i'll ever be able to make a new looking fluted crust in my lifetime) or pre bake your pie dough.
In France, they call them galettes, but i call them tarts.
Make your favourite pie dough.
Roll it out on a sheet of parchment.
Move parchment to a baking sheet and sprinkle a small amount of your favourite cookie or cake crumbs on the dough, leaving about 2 - 3 inch border from the edge.
We make orange nutmeg shortbread from Grand Central Bakery's cookbook for our galettes, simply because we like having those around too. :)
Next, mix up some pie filling with fresh fruits--shorting the sugar if you like and
adding your favourite spices.
Here we used cinnamon, sugar, a little clove, and nectarines and peaches.
Arrange the fruit over your crumbs on your pie crust.
Fold the edges of your crust up over the fruit, leaving a small uncovered area about the size of a tea cup saucer.
Bake as you would a pie...
Ain't it peachy?
