Galettes taste just as wonderful as freshly baked pie but are much easier to make.
First things first. Just what exactly is a galette?
What is a galette?
A galette is a rustic French pastry made with a single layer crust folded over a sweet or savory filling, often made of fruit. The crusty, flat cake is similar to a pie or tart, but easier to make.
Easy Rustic Galette
Thes best part is that fruit galettes are an easy no-fuss dessert. There is no need to stress trying to roll out the dough into a perfect circle or fold the dough over neatly.
By nature, galettes are meant to look imperfect and rustic. Like something that grandma would have made in her kitchen, not like a fancy fruit tart that you would buy in the store.

How to Make a Blueberry Peach Galette
Once you have gathered your ingredients you can begin making the galette.
1. Make the galette dough: In a mixing bowl, cut the butter into the flour using a pastry cutter until the mixture is the size of small peas.
Add cottage cheese and stir until combined.
2. Chill the dough: Shape dough into a ball. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
3. Heat the oven: Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
4. Prepare the filling: Place peaches and blueberries in a large bowl. Add brown sugar, cornstarch, and almond extract. Gently toss to coat; set aside.
5. Roll the dough: On a piece of flour-dusted parchment paper, roll dough into a roughly 12-inch circle. Remember, it doesn’t have to look perfect. We are going for rustic vibes here! Leave the dough on the parchment paper and transfer to a baking sheet.
6. Assemble the galette: Spoon the fruit mixture onto the dough, leaving a 2-inch border along the perimeter.
Fold dough edges over, crimping and pleating as needed. Brush the beaten egg over the dough and sprinkle with 1-tbsp. brown sugar.
7. Bake: Bake on center rack until golden brown and bubbly, about 45 minutes. Cool on cooling rack for 20 minutes before slicing.
Serve with a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream, if desired.
If you are lucky enough to have any leftovers, simply cover and store at room temperate for up to 3 days.
