Stone Fruit Galette

Makes 1-10 inch galette

 

Ingredients:

Dough:

1 1/4 oz (2 1/2 cups) all-purpose flour, more for rolling

12 TBSP (6 oz) cold, unsalted butter; cut into 1/2 inch pieces

1 TSP sugar

1/4 TSP kosher salt

1/2 cup ice-cold water, more as needed

 

Filling:

1/2 cup plus 2 TBSP sugar

2 TSP all-purpose flour

1 TSP finely grated lemon zest

Kosher salt

3 cups pitted, sliced peaches, nectarines or plums. or a mixture (about 1 1/4 lb whole fruit)

1 TSP freshly squeezed lemon juice  (about 1/2 lemon)

1 egg white, beaten

 

Directions:

For dough:

Place the flour. butter, sugar and salt ina bowl of a stand mixer* and freeze for 30 minutes. Take the bowl from the freezer and put it on the mixer with the paddle attachment. Mix on low speed until it resembles a crumbly meal with the biggest pieces about the size of a pea, about 2 minutes. With the motor running, drizzle in the water, 1 tablespoon at a time. You may need a little more or less than 1/2 cup; use just enough for the mixture to come together into shaggy clumps. Stop mixing as soon as you acheive this consistency. Dump the dough onto a large piece of plastic wrap and use your hands to press and shape the dough into a 7 inch disk. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for at least 1 hour or overnight. Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment or a nonstick liner. 

*Can substitute with hand blender OR by hand, stirring vigorously. 

 

To make the filling:

Combine the 1/2 cup sugar, the flour, the zest and a pinch of salt in a large bowl and whisk to combine. Add the fruit to the bowl, along with the fresh lemon juice. Toss to combine and set aside. Take the dough from the fridge and put on a lightly floured work surface. Roll the dough into a 1/8 inch thick round, about 17 inches across. Loosely roll up around the rolling pin and unroll onto baking sheet. Put the fruit mixture in the center of the dough, leaving a 3 inch rim all around. Fold the excess dough up and over the fruit, overlapping as neccessary. Brush the shaped dough with the egg white sand sprinkle with remaining 2 TBSP sugar. Bake until the crust is golden and the fruit is tender, 45 to 55 minutes. Let rest on the baking sheet for 20 minutes before serving. *

 

*For variety in color and flavor, you can replace up to 1 cup of the stone fruit with an equal amount of fresh blueberries.
