Apricot Peach Galette + A Giveaway!

Looking for a super simple yet super scrumptious summer dessert? Look no further! I’ve got the perfect thing for you!

I’ve worked with Libby’s a few times and they are always wonderful to work with! Most recently they challenged me to come up with a sweet brunch recipe using canned peaches and apricots. A galette immediately came to mind!

I love making galettes because they are beautiful in a very rustic way, and they always taste great, especially with a bit of ice cream on top! The big bonus for me, however, is that they are super easy to make. You know how I love easy!

I made this apricot peach galette for our little family and they gobbled it up! Cate and Nate even had seconds. Nate said he wished it was all apricots (he loves apricots) but Cate protested loudly that the peaches were her favorite part (she loves peaches). I’m sure you can play around with the fruit to your own taste, but I kind of like having both in there to keep things interesting!

Without further ado, I give you Apricot Peach Galette!

Apricot Peach Galette + A Giveaway!
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 1 store-bought, refrigerated 9-inch pie crust OR ½ recipe for Pate Brisee from Martha Stewart (the pate brisee is delicious and easy to make, but a store-bought crust is even easier and still super yummy!)
  • 1 can Libby’s sliced peaches or 3 fresh peaches, sliced
  • 1 can Libby’s apricot halves or ~8 fresh apricots, halved and pitted
  • Juice from ½ lemon (about 1-2 teaspoons lemon juice)
  • 3 pinches of salt
  • 1 – 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar (aka sugar in the raw)
  • 1 egg, whisked with a bit of water
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Place pie crust or rolled out pate brisee (when you halve the Martha Stewart recipe, you should roll it out to about 12 inches or so) on a rimmed cooking sheet lined with parchment paper or a Silpat. Drain peaches and apricots. Slice apricot halves into thirds. Place drained peaches and apricots on center of crust in an even pile, leaving about a 2-3 inch border of crust around the fruit (if you use the store-bought crust, your border will be a bit smaller than the pate brisee). Drizzle fruit with lemon juice, sprinkle with pinches of salt, then fold edges of crust up around the sides. You can be as tidy or as sloppy as you like with the edges – it comes out pretty either way!
  3. Once the border is folded up around the sides, brush the “crust” lightly but thoroughly with the egg wash. Sprinkle the crust liberally with turbinado sugar, and feel free to toss a few crystals of sugar on the fruit, too.
  4. Bake for about 40 minutes, until the crust has browned nicely. Remove from the oven, let cool a few minutes, then serve. If you let it cool a little longer, you can usually transfer the galette easily to a serving platter using a few flat spatulas and some care.

  37. 37

  72. 73

    Well, I’m a peach gal..being from Georgia and all. Though I’ve lived in New Orleans now for 15yrs…so maybe I should change it up. It looks beautiful with either fruit. Thanks for the giveaway.

  73. 74
    Jess S

    Love those trays! I like peaches and apricots equally but for my husband, it’s all peaches. My daughter’s thing is nectarines, though. Think I could use those in this?

  74. 75
    Kay Gee

    Love both fruits!

  75. The trays are beautiful, and your tart looks to die for!

  76. I also like Libby’s on Facebook

  77. 78

  78. 79
    Sarah B

    Wow – the Apricot Nectar cake (Libby’s) looks amazingly moist and yummy! Thanks for the chance to win the beautiful cutting board set. 😀

  79. 80

    This looks delish!

  80. 81

    It may seem twisted but I’m intrigued to try the salt and vinegar chick peas.

  81. Peaches all the way!

  82. 83

    Peaches please

  83. 84

    peaches. our home-grown ones! We make this every year – will have to do turbinado sugar this time instead of regular!

  84. 85

    black bean and bacon veggie bites! intriguing!

  85. 86

    I like the idea of combining the fruits, but peaches would be the favorite in our house!

    Peaches! And those are some gorgeous trays!!

  87. 88
    Sherry Lykins

    That looks amazing!! And peaches!!

  88. 89

    I love ANY fruit dessert like this. Looks delicious…especially on one of those beautiful trays!

  89. 90

    What about peaches and blueberries? Sounds mighty fine to me.

  90. 91
    Holly B

    That looks so amazing! I made strawberry pie this week that was….let’s just say less than successful. This is definitely inspiring me to keep trying 🙂

  91. peaches>apricots, but watermelon is better than both (not for baking though!) 🙂

  92. the smoky carrot hummus on the recipe app sounds so good 🙂

  93. 94

    This looks amazing! I think fresh nectarines(unpeeled) and raspberries would be a winning combo!
    Or canned pineapple and brown sugar with maraschino cherries!

  94. 95

    Those wood trays are beauuuuutiful.

  95. 96

    I just heated up some Trader Joe’s Pulled Pork..but the Sweet and Spicy Peachy BBQ Pork Sliders on Libby’s page looks sooo good.

  96. 97


  97. 98
    Cindy I

    Peaches wins for me, maybe an apricot jam glaze on top?

  98. 99

    I never thought of doing peaches and apricots together ”” I love doing a peach-blueberry galette and I’ve done a blueberry-apricot one too. I will try this combo next time!

  99. 100
    Kelly J

    Those trays are gorgeous!!

  100. 101

    Peaches are my favorite!

  101. I’m going to have to go with peaches!

  103. 105

    I’m about a week too late for the giveaway, but I couldn’t not comment on how absolutely gorgeous that galette is! That peachy orangey color is amazing.

  104. 106

    I can’t wait to try this! Apricots are one of my favorites,and it is pretty too!
