While thinking of the perf summer dessert and having a handful of blueberries and peaches on the verge of expiration, I instantly knew I had to remake one of my recipes from last year..
This gorgeous Peach and Blueberry Galette 🙂
On a personal note I love to remake recipes. It’s a way to not only perfect them, but relive the chapter of your life when you made it. The galette tasted just the same, but aesthetically the crust didn’t look the way I wanted, and the lighting was just off that day and the list goes on. As we all know, aesthetics matter! I’ve seen countless recipes that I know the flavors don’t blend, but the pictures were beautiful and people were drawn to it. It’s safe to say, although I captured these images while talking on the phone to my mom lol (true story), they do this dessert justice because it’s just so effortless and good!!
I love desserts, but I still don’t have a black belt in cake decorating or pies. I find them tedious, involved and just not practical for everyone. That being said, I love the concept of a galette. It’s easy breezy, can be thrown together in a short time, you can omit the sugar all together, you can modify the fruit to cater to the season, top with ice cream, infuse with herbs and the list goes on.
If you love a staple dessert, you have to try this vegan Peach & Blueberry Galette!
