The Domestic Artist--Peach and Almond Gallete

This week featuring our wonderfully new category--The Domestic Artist--to encourage and inspire Wise Woman homemakers, Miss Jen is sharing her recipe for Peach and Almond Gallete! Take a peek!

This peach almond gallette is a scrumptious dessert-

and fairly easy to make if you keep homemade pie dough in the
freezer like I do. Last week whilst roaming the produce section
I came upon the most juicy, deliciously, ripe peaches just begging
to be made into something lovely. 

Peach and Almond Galette

Bon Appetit
8 servings
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon sliced almonds, toasted
1/4 cup almond paste
6 tablespoons all purpose flour, divided
1/4 cup (packed) golden brown sugar
Pinch of salt
3 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter,
cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 refrigerated pie crust (half of 15-ounce package)
1 large egg, beaten to blend
1 1/2 pounds peaches, halved, pitted,
cut into 1/2-inch wedges
Sweetened whipped cream or vanilla ice cream
Almond paste is available in the baking aisle of most
supermarkets and at specialty foods stores.
Preparation Preheat oven to 375°F. Line large baking sheet with parchment. Combine 1/4 cup almonds, almond paste, 5 tablespoons flour, sugar, and salt in processor until almonds are ground. Add butter; pulse until almond topping begins to clump together. Transfer topping to medium bowl. If necessary, roll pastry to 11-inch round. Transfer to prepared sheet. Brush crust with some beaten egg. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup almond topping. Toss peaches with 1 tablespoon flour in large bowl. Add 1/3 cup topping; toss again. Spoon peaches onto crust, leaving 1 1/4-inch border and mounding in center. Sprinkle remaining topping over peaches. Fold crust up at edges, pleating as needed. Brush crust edges with beaten egg. Bake galette until crust is golden brown, peaches are tender, and juices are bubbling thickly, about 45-50 minutes. Transfer galette on paper to rack to cool. Sprinkle remaining 1 tablespoon almonds over. Cool completely. Cut into wedges and serve with whipped cream or ice cream.
Serve with LOVE.
And... if you don't want to eat the whole gallete,
maybe think about packaging part of your
dessert up with a pretty ribbon, along with a note....
and present it to one of your friends
as a token of love.
Many Blessings, dear readers.

Having just turned 19, Jen finds great joy in serving her family from home. She firmly believes that the home is a beautiful canvas for biblical hospitality, servanthood and discipleship.  All aspects of homemaking are on her list of interests including gourmet cooking, baking, calligraphy, sewing and embroidery. She is also inspired by photography, music, theology and biblical womanhood. Miss Jen blogs at Blessed Femina, which she founded in the fall of 2008 to document her blessed life as a daughter/homemaker-in- training and to encourage other women in Biblical femininity. Happily residing in sunny northern California with her parents, it is her greatest desire to live a life depicted in I Corinthians 10:31: “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”

This dessert looks amazing. I'll be trying it as soon as I can find the almond paste. I loved the idea of tying a ribbon around it to bless a friend. I think I'll make two. :-)
