The perfect Summer Dessert : galette

what’s not too love : puff pastry and fruits with cream – YES please!

Basically a galette is a French flat and round pastry. Use a little puff pastry, fill it with fruits and bake, it’s that easy.

I like to try different filling, I posted in fall 2015 mini galettes with plums. Now in full summer, I want to use my favourite fruit of all time : peaches! (thank you Pascale for the peaches!) I combined my love for champagne and rose water in this dessert as well.

I served the galette with fresh whipped cream with crushed raspberries, chopped pistachios and a spritz of rose water and petals.

I soaked the fruit in champagne for a few hours, the fruit got all fresh and bubbly and I drank the infused champers while cooking 🙂
