One of my close friends from high school just finished her library sciences degree. The best way to celebrate the occasion is to bake, of course.
But I didn’t just want to bake some cookies. Cookies just don’t quite convey the “huzzah on your accomplishments, no more school for you ever again!!” message that I wanted. Naturally, I had to step up my baking game.
I used the peach galette recipe from Simply Recipes to make this beautiful creation. I didn’t get a chance to taste it, but my friend did give me the thumbs up on this.
- When I pulled the galette out of the oven, there was still a lot of liquid in the center of the galette. Don’t worry, the liquid will solidify once the galette is cooled.
- I baked the galette 5 minutes longer than the time posted in the recipe to make sure that the crust was adequately golden brown.
Peach season is upon us, so check out the original recipe at Simply Recipes to make of these galettes for yourself!
