TWD: White Peach & Strawberry Galette

So upon hearing what this weeks TWD challenge was I thought "what in the world is a galette?" I ran to get Dorie's Baking cookbook, found the recipe & then went to my best friend Google to see some pictures. Looks like a pie without the sides or top. You can make a fruit galette with anything you'd like. I went to whole foods this weekend and got the most amazing, juicy white peaches & nice looking strawberries. I used a ginger marmalade to spread over the dough thinking it would be a great compliment to the peaches & I was right. The crust..........OMG the crust is soooo good. Really sweet, flaky & perfect. It's not as dense as a pie crust, definitely more light. When I took my first bite.........mmmmm the sweet fruit, creamy custard mixed with the flaky crust. A symphony of flavors exploding in my mouth. I will definitely make this recipe again. I am taking it to work tomorrow for breakfast (I had to try a tiny piece though first to make sure the galette tasted good). But if you feel adventurous, definitely give this a try. It does looks very impressive to serve.
