How to Make a (Really Good) Peach Galette in Under an Hour

I’m doing my best to make the most out of all the peaches I picked on the farm. Sooooo…peach galette for everyone!

Today is peach pie day (along with national waffle day), so even though a galette isn’t quite a pie, I figured it was close enough for the occasion. What do you say?

We made this one with fresh peaches and homemade filling, but skipped the homemade crust for a store-bought version to keep things easy. It is Monday after all, right?

peach galette recipe


– store-bought pie crust
– 4 peaches, sliced thin
– 1/2 cup sugar
– 3 tbsp corn starch
– 1 tsp lime juice
– 1/4 tsp salt
– 1 tbsp cold butter, cut into small cubes
– 1 egg white
– 1 tbsp water
– granulated sugar


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

In the large bowl, mix sugar, corn starch, lime juice, and salt. Add the peach slices and toss gently.

In a small prep bowl, combine the egg white and water and whisk to combine. Set aside.

Place the pie crust on the baking sheet and arrange the peach slices in a circular pattern in the middle. Leave about 2″ of pie crust around the sides for folding in the next step. Dot the top of the peaches with butter cubes.

Fold the sides inward, overlapping each new fold slightly over the prior fold. Lightly brush the crust with egg wash. While the egg wash is still wet, sprinkle with sugar.

Bake for approximately 30 minutes.

Serve with whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, or as is, depending on your mood.

There’s still a few more weeks of peach season, in some cases even longer than that, depending on where you live. So what do you say?

Think you’ll make one of these galettes before the summer ends?

This is a perfect recipe. My first Galette I used fresh wild blackberries. Yummy. Just tried the peach one. Being diabetic I have been using Travia as a substitute for the sugar. Only 1/4 cup. Just the right amount of sweetness. I will be using this recipe for all of my fruit “pies” now. Love the rustic look and only one crust.

This looks so yummy! I am curious how important the sugar and butter is. If I’m looking for a healthier alternative would you recommend something like honey and coconut oil? Or something else?

I am definitely going to try this! Just as soon as I can find some peaches that actually taste like peaches. Very disappointed in what I’m finding in my area. I’ve come close with some locally grown peaches but they are quite small. I absolutely love how easy yet attractive this dessert is. Thank you for sharing this recipe.


I made your galette this morning for my staff meeting. I would attach a picture, but the guys INHALED it. So simple. Turned out perfectly! Thanks!!!
