“Crostata”/Italian = “Galette”/French
Also called a Plum and Peach Galette – it’s a delicious fruit dessert that is easier to make than pie! Flaky pie crust gets folded over the edge of fresh juicy plums and peach slices! You don’t even need to peel the fruit!
Bake until the plum and peach slices are all juicy and bubbly! Let cool a bit to let the juices thicken up, then serve with some vanilla ice cream or whipped cream! It’s a little rustic and a lot delicious!
Prep the Fruit & Filling:
Slice Around the Plum Pits!
Removing pits from plums can be tricky – I find it easier to make two cuts on either side of the pit… Cut from next to the stem to the base of the plum, letting your knife slice around the pit – make this cut on both sides and you’ll slice off 2 plump plum “cheeks”. Then slice off the side pieces, letting your knife curve around the pit, to reduce any waste. Lastly, slice the side pieces and the cheeks to your desired thickness.
