Apricot Peach Galette

Description

Recipe by Jane Maynard from This Week for Dinner

Serves 6

Cook time: 40 min.

Ingredients
1 store-bought refrigerated 9-inch pie crust
1 tsp lemon juice (or juice from ½ lemon)
3 pinches of salt
1 tbsp tbsp raw sugar
1 egg (whisked with a bit of water)
Instructions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 

Place pie crust on a rimmed cooking sheet lined with parchment paper or a Silpat.

Drain peaches and apricots. Slice apricot halves into thirds. Place drained peaches and apricots on center of crust in an even pile, leaving about a 2-3 inch border of crust around the fruit. Drizzle fruit with lemon juice, sprinkle with pinches of salt, then fold edges of crust up around the sides. You can be as tidy or as sloppy as you like with the edges – it comes out pretty either way!

Once the border is folded up around the sides, brush the “crust” lightly but thoroughly with the egg wash. Sprinkle the crust liberally with raw sugar, and feel free to toss a few crystals of sugar on the fruit, too.

Bake for about 40 minutes, until the crust has browned nicely. Remove from the oven, let cool a few minutes, then serve. If you let it cool a little longer, you can usually transfer the galette easily to a serving platter using a few flat spatulas and some care.
