Peach and Raspberry Gallete with Almond Crust (+ Bourbon!)

Peach and Raspberry Galette

What’s so great about galettes? Pretty much everything. They’re easier to make than a pie, plus you can make them either sweet or savory. I like to use the most seasonal fruit I find, so this week I made a Peach and Raspberry Galette with an Almond Crust (and some bourbon!). I’m obsessed with the flavor combination of peaches and raspberries; it’s incredible.

Peaches and Raspberries

I love it so much, that I just made the most amazing ode to this recipe in a cocktail form: Nectarine and Raspberry Daiquiri. If you love this dessert, then you will freak out over the flavors in the cocktail, too.

The recipe below calls for half whole wheat flour and all-purpose flour, however you can absolutely use all all-purpose flour for this galette recipe if you don’t’ have any whole wheat flour laying around your pantry. I like the using whole wheat flour because it is slightly more nutritious for you. The color of the whole wheat mixed crust will be slightly darker than the all-purpose flour, but I think it adds a nice color contrast.

I’ve added some extra delicious elements to this Raspberry and Peach Galette that really make it stand out: bourbon and almond extract. That’s right, the Love Happy Hour lady added bourbon to her galette – surprised? Thought so. The bourbon is completely optional, but I love it. The almond extract kicks things up a notch, too, especially when you are mixing the fruit together. You can really smell it!

Another important note is that I only mix half the raspberries into the mix with the peaches and then save the other half for the very top. Not only will this help make your galette more Instagram-worthy, but it will prevent them from getting smashed with the peaches in the bottom layer (which is completely fine for the first half). Raspberries are so delicate.

I wanted the the touch of almond extract to pair with the crust, so I lined it with slivered almonds. It gives it a wonderful texture! You can give your galette that extra shiny look by brushing the the tops of the peach slices with apricot jam once your baked galette has cooled – I learned that from Julia Child. Lastly, I highly recommend topping your galette with caramel ice cream if you want to take this recipe above and beyond. Mouth-gasm…just saying.

Happy summer, and please tag me if you make this on Instagram @lovehappyhour!
