TWD: Summer Fruit Galette


One word: delicious.
This free-from pie was stunning in presentation and taste. I had never made Dorie's pie crust before and found it incredibly tender and buttery. The custard was a good accent to the nectarines, and the blueberry jam rounded everything out without being overwhelming. I would definitely make this again.
I couldn't halve the nectarines like the recipe called for; when I tried they turned into a lot of mush. Also, the recipe called for 8-10 nectarines, but there was no way all of those would have fit. I used 6 and it was perfect, I was able to fit about half the custard into the galette.
My dad was at the Red Sox - Yankees game so I took these unattractive pictures on my 2.0 mega pixel phone. They don't do this delectable dessert justice.

Oh wow... I was beginning to lose my enthusiasm for making this (I'm supposed to do it tonight), but now I'm re-inspired!!

Having a photo makes all the difference. There isn't one in the book.

Thanks!!

Looks great. I'm not really a nectarine fan, but they look tempting your galette. I love the dough recipe, too.

Oooh, don't you hate it when there are camera issues?

It still looks good, though. Nice work!
