Colorado Peach Galette

Posted by - Ellebee

Well, it took Rena coming to Colorado to get my butt back into baking mode. Every year, my husband and I order two cases of Colorado western slope peaches, the most delicious peaches in the world, from our local Rotary club. Some we freeze, some we turn into jelly, and I always make a few peach pies right away. This year's peach pick-up corresponded with Rena's visit, so she got to taste these wonderful peaches and prompted me to use some for a delicious galette.

I used a really simple pie crust recipe - 1 stick of butter, 1 cup of flour, and enough cold water to stick it all together.

Piper was a champ and ate a peachy snack while we baked.
We couldn't wait for dessert to dig into the finished galette. We tasted it the afternoon it came out of the oven and finished it off after a dinner that night.
