Strawberry-peach galette

This turned out so well, that my husband seriously encouraged me not to post it and save it for a cookbook. Well, I don't think a cookbook is anywhere in my near future, so here it does. But if you make it, or plan to make it, leave me a comment please.

1x9-inch pie crust
3 yellow peaches
0.25 cup small, frozen strawberries
1/3 cu sugar
2 tbsp starch
0.25 tsp salt
0.25 tsp almond extract
0.25 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp sugar

Try to get ripe, but not squishy peaches. Peel them and slice them into quarter inch slices. Cut the strawberries into pieces. Mix with the almond and vanilla flavor.

Add the sugar, salt and starch on top. Mix well using your hand.

Preheat the oven to 400F. Pour the filling into the crust, then fold the edges over and brush the edges with milk. Sprinkle with sugar.

Bake for 30-40 minutes, until it reached the desired golden color. Allow to cool on a wire rack, serve with vanilla ice cream. The flavors are truly subliminal. The almond extract gives it just a hint of almond flavor.


  1. I will make this this weekend!
    how are you? when are you coming to Princeton?

  2. I'm doing fine...veeery busy. I haven't decided yet, if I'm coming or not. But if I am, it will be on the evening of the 10th. Next week.
