If you’ve never had a galette before you are missing out! It’s like an easier version of a pie, except a whole lot easier. This vegan peach almond galette is bursting with fresh, juicy peaches, a toasted almond crust, and just a dash of cinnamon. The best part is, the more rustic it looks, the more charming it is. This makes it a perfect thing to bake if you’re new to baking!
I have to be honest with you, this was the first galette I’ve ever made, but it most certainly won’t be the last! I was amazed at how easy it came together and how delicious it tastes too! If you are new to baking, or vegan baking, this is the PERFECT thing to try.
Tips for making the perfect vegan peach almond galette
- Use cold butter: Like most pastry dough this recipe calls for cold butter. You can use a pastry cutter to chop the butter and incorporate it into the flour or two knives work just fine too! Truth be told, I don’t own a pastry cutter and always slice it up with two knives!
- Use ice water: I think you are catching the theme here! You want to keep the butter in the dough cold to create the perfect flakey crust.
- Chill the crust: While you are making the filling, place the crust in the fridge until you are ready to use it.
- Thinly slice the fruit: This helps ensure that the fruit is fully cooked at the same time as the crust!
- Brush the crust with date caramel sauce: Yeah, you read that right! I always have a batch of my homemade vegan salted caramel sauce in the fridge because it’s literally good for anything. But, if you don’t have the time or ingredients to make a batch, you can brush the crust with coconut cream!
- Sprinkle the crust with almond slivers: Chop up some almonds and spread the on top of the caramel sauce for an extra crunch!
- A hint of almond extract: This is a game-changer. Just a splash of almond extract makes the dough taste like a buttery almond cookie.
- Top it with ice cream or coconut whip cream: Alright so this is optional but, highly recommend.
Can I make the galette ahead of time?
Once you mix up the dough it can be tightly covered and refrigerated for up to three days before rolling and baking. You could also bake the galette entirely before cooling and then freeze it. Thaw it in the refrigerator overnight and bake just until warm before serving.
Galettes are versatile and can be made savory too
Another key point to mention is the endless options for galettes. You can use whatever kind of fruit you have and even make it savory! Once you learn how to make the dough, the possibilities are virtually endless. As you can see from the pictures, I ran out of peaches. I reached into the bowl and two of my peaches went bad before I got around to making this so I had to improvise. So, I tossed in a pear! I will definitely be whipping up more galettes soon, so keep your eyes out! But until then, try this vegan peach almond galette out and make sure to leave a comment below when you do!
