Galettes are such an easy dessert option. The combination of thyme and fresh peaches in there recipe gives it a sophisticated flare. With a gluten free crust, and some blueberries for a pop of flavor; there’s something for everyone in this dessert.
Whenever we have company I always love to serve a homemade dessert. Pie’s are always a crowd pleaser, but they can be time consuming. Especially if they’re gluten free! So I decided to jump on the band wagon and try my hand at making a galette.
This recipe was inspired by one of my favorite bloggers Against All Grain. Every Tuesday she posts a live video and a few weeks ago it was a blueberry galette. Since I aspire to be just like her when I grow up I knew I had to make one! Generally when I have company it’s on 4-6 people, and I don’t want lots of leftover dessert that I’ll snack on all week. So I scaled mine down, it makes six pieces instead of a full pie size. Perfect for a small dinner party!
Generally I try to make my own flour blends, but that can difficult. For this recipe I decided to use an all purpose blend to make life easier. I used some Sunshine’s Gluten Free All Purpose Flour and was so happy with the results! The dough was a little crumbly when rolling the sides up around the filling, however a little water and my finger tips smoothed it right out. Easy peasy!
Oh and have a mentioned the best part yet? There’s no added sugar! All the sugar comes from peaches, I used white peaches, and dried blueberries. That’s all the sugar you need! What really makes this dish unique in the thyme. It adds a savory quality that will keep everyone going back for more!
