Ginger Peach Galette

Ginger Peach Galette | A Teaspoon of Happiness

It’s hard to believe that summer is pretty much over. It seems like just yesterday I was waking up to a frozen pond at our apartment in Green Bay. Somehow, it’s five months later and we’re living in France patiently waiting for the arrival of Baby Girl B. Can you believe we only have 5 weeks left until my due date?

Anyway the end of summer means peaches, and I’ve been devouring them like crazy – they’ve really always been one of my favorite fruits. So I decided to take my love of peaches and do a little easy baking, and I made a ginger peach galette for you.

I took some peaches, peeled them, sliced them, and seasoned them up a little before placing them into a pre-made pie crust. I didn’t even put it in a pie plate because that would take way too much effort.

After baking in the oven for a bit, the peaches transformed into a beautifully rustic dessert with just a hint of sugar and spice. The perfect way to celebrate the remainder of our summer season.

    I love that you paired fresh ginger with the peaches! That sounds so refreshing, and these pictures are beautiful. I felt the same way about this summer flying by… this year we had snow all the way through April, and I think that threw off my internal clock. Now the leaves are changing colors and I’m so not ready for it!

      We had snow all the way through April, too! It was such a horrible winter last year. Hopefully this one will be better though 🙂 I guess there’s always fall related cooking to look forward to – like pumpkins, apples and soup!

    Wow.. this looks beautiful! I love that you use premade pie crust to make a much more doable weeknight or even weekend dessert! And the ginger is genius. Because you are genius uh DUH!

      More like laziness! But, it was made pretty quickly so it’s perfect for any day of the week. I actually found some seemingly all-natural crust. I’m still not 100% sure how healthy it is, but it’s supposed to be made with real butter instead of lard-o shortening, which is good since I’m always so grossed out by shortening.

      Yes! Peaches are the best! You have to eat as many as you can before they’re gone 🙂
