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.
