Rustic Peach Galette

Aren't these just beautiful?

As promised, continuing with Peach week here at Sweet and Spicy Monkey, today’s recipe is my Rustic Peach Galette!!
In case you’re wondering, galette’s are from the tart family with the exception that they are often placed on a single layer of pie crust with a layer of fruit, often one variety, in the middle. Instead of the straight, square sides of a tart, the galette’s edges are folded over, creating an open middle displaying the fruit. A simple pie.

But don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing simple about the taste of this peach galette. It still has the flaky, buttery pie crust with the taste of sweet, juicy summer peaches baked in cinnamon that reminds you of your grandma’s peach pie. It’s just a little bit healthier than grandmas and a whole lot easier to make. And y’all know how I feel about easy!

When I first made this last week, I sliced up two peaches and laid them out all pretty looking like the picture below. The only problem with it was there just wasn’t enough peaches. So that’s why I wanted to make another one before sharing.  

And I’m so glad I went back to the kitchen with this recipe before sharing with y’all. The extra peaches I added in the different shapes with the drizzle of honey over the top made this peach galette taste even more like my grandma’s peach pie!

It definitely has enough peaches now and the taste of cinnamon baked into those sweet, juicy peaches… mmm!  The tastes reminds me of everything summer…
Rustic Peach Galette


1 ready-made pie crust, room temperature

4 peaches, washed and rinsed, diced thin into any shape you desire

½ teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon flour (I used my GF flour)

1 Tablespoon + 1 teaspoon coconut oil, melted

1 Tablespoon + 1 teaspoon honey

1-2 Tablespoons water

Pinch of granulated sugar


Preheat oven to 325F degrees.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

Dice peaches thinly into any shape you desire (I cut my peaches into small squares) and place into a medium size bowl.

Add in coconut oil, cinnamon, honey, and flour. Mix well, making sure all peaches are covered with honey mixture. Set aside.

Roll out room temperature pie crust onto parchment paper.

Spoon peach mixture onto pie crust, leaving a 1 inch border on edges. Gently fold pie crust up and over peaches. Don’t worry if it tears just push together with dampened fingers.

Mix together water and sugar to a small bowl. Lightly brush water and sugar mixture around the edges of the pie crust. You won’t be using all of the water and sugar mixture so don’t worry about leftovers here.

Place baking sheet with galette into oven for 30-40 minutes or until edges are a golden brown.

Remove from oven and drizzle some honey over the peaches. Let cool for 10-15 minutes before serving.

These are delicious as is or you can serve topped with your choice of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
