Directions

  • STEP 1

    To make the galette dough: place flour and salt in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse for a few times to mix. Add in the cold butter cubes. Pulse 8-10 times until butter resembles small clumps.

  • STEP 2

    Turn the machine on and add in 4 tablespoons of ice-cold water in one tablespoons increments.

  • STEP 3

    At this point, it should start to come together and form into a ball. If not add in the rest of the water until it does.

  • STEP 4

    Transfer onto a lightly floured surface, form it into a 4-inch disk, and wrap with plastic. Place in the fridge for at least 1 hour or overnight.

  • STEP 5

    Take it out of the fridge 10 minutes before you are ready to roll it out.

  • STEP 6

    To make the filling: place peaches, plums, blueberries in a bowl. Sprinkle with coconut sugar. Set aside to macerate.

  • STEP 7

    Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare a sheet of parchment paper that will fit into the baking sheet.

  • STEP 8

    To assemble: Lightly flour your working surface. Roll the dough into a large 12-inch circle. Transfer onto the parchment paper and then onto a baking sheet.

  • STEP 9

    If you are using, sprinkle it evenly with almond meal leaving a 2-inch border on the sides.

  • STEP 10

    Spread the fruit on top slightly mounting in the middle, again leaving a 2-inch border around the edges.

  • STEP 11

    Roll the sides of the dough overlapping as you go around and pleating the dough.

  • STEP 12

    Brush the outer crust with egg yolk and sprinkle with sliced almonds lightly pressing to make sure they stick.

  • STEP 13

    Bake 50-55 minutes or until the crust turns golden brown. Transfer the galette onto a wire rack to cool.

  • STEP 14

    If preferred, dilute honey with a tablespoon of water and lightly brush the top of the fruit.

  • STEP 15

    Serve while it is still warm.
