TBB: Perfect Peach Galette




I used frozen peach because there wasn't any peaches yet in stock.  I used 2 packets and they weigh 590g. I wished I had used 3 packets instead. Note to self: Next time used more peaches..the more the merrier..lol!  


Drained the juices. 


Microwaved the syrup juice for 6-7 mins.


Oh no..all hardened like candy.. Rose said not to worry..but I am still bothered by it. So I cut the caramel into tiny pieces..lol!  


Peaches look a lot but after baked..they shrink!  
I rolled the dough to 16" on the same baking paper that I am going to bake with. Easier for me imo...cos I rolled it the night before to 14" and then back in the fridge. The next day just before baking, I rolled it to 16" and then assembled and baked.   


Then wrapped it up like a big dumpling. 
I realised that there's a lot of pastry..and at this point I knew I wanted to have more peaches. But the pastry too thin and too soft to move it. 



I had extra pastry from the mulblueberry pie I made so I cut them up into hearts and put them all over.  Sprinkled 1 tsp of sugar all over too.


All baked. 


I managed to get a slice of photo before I left the house. 
That plate is a free plate - can't remember from where. I think Namiko Chan must be the designer.
And if you are wondering, I like to snack on popcorns..those are lightly salted popcorns :)  


There, another photo of the slice pie with the mulblueberry pie. 


Very yummy pie and pairs perfectly well with ice-cream. However, like I said I wished it had more peaches, at least 2x more imo.  Will definitely make this pie again.

That crust looks totally irresistible! I shall bake one before our peach season is over. Thanks for sharing, Faithy.

The frozen peaches look fine. They seem like a good option but they're not in supermarkets here. Your pie looks delish - more pastry is my preference!

Good idea to increase the peaches to crust ratio! Your galette looks so cute with the hearts.

I'm glad that it worked so well with frozen peaches--now I can bake it all year long.
