As we are here at the end of the summer it is easy to find fruits of the season at a very good price, so Gerardo now arrived with a box of peaches.
Thank God it's a good kind of peaches that does not mature so quickly. In any case I put them all in the refrigerator and made this galette of peaches.
This recipe gives the dough for two galette (I put a dough in the refrigerator for a while) and you can use a mixture of peaches and plums but I really loved it with peaches and the crust is wonderful
It is not complicated to do.
It can be done with different fruits.
In summary a good recipe.
