Nectarine Galette in Whole Grain Pastry

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

It seemed like perfect timing, I had the second half of the whole wheat pastry to use and four lovely nectarines waiting for me to do something with them. Besides just eating them fresh that is. Since we are headed to Vancouver in the morning, I thought about this presentation of nectarines in a whole grain crust, plus it will travel well.

I set the frozen pastry out to thaw while we ate dinner. At first, the pastry was at first a bit stiff, but it rolled out just fine, once I flattened it with the palm of my hand until it was about 1/2 inch thick. I also palm flatten white flour pastry dough also. Flattening with the palm of your hand seems to ease the mass into being rolled out with the pastry pin.

Fresh Nectarine Galette
inspired by this Pear Creme Pie
450-degree oven

pastry for 1 nine-inch crust
4 large nectarines - sliced but no need to peel
1 t lemon juice or cider vinegar
3/4 c sugar - divided
1 T cornstarch
1/4 c flour
1 egg
dash salt
1 t vanilla
1/4 t cinnamon
1/4 t ground nutmeg - divided

Roll out the pastry to fit a 9-inch pan, roll pastry up onto the rolling pin, then unroll to lay the pastry on a large baking sheet. This trick will help keep the pastry from stretching or ripping.

Slice nectarines, combine with 1/4 c sugar, 1 lemon juice, 1 T cornstarch, 1/8 t ground nutmeg, and the cinnamon.

Spoon into the center of the pastry circle. Arrange if needed to make a circle.

Combine remaining 1/2 c sugar, egg, flour, salt, 1 t vanilla, 1/8 t ground nutmeg. Stir until the mixture is smooth and falls from the spoon in a ribbon.

Pour evenly over the nectarines, fold pastry up over the fruit mixture, pleating the pastry as you work around the edge.

Nectarine Galette ready to bake.

Bake 450 degrees for 15 minutes, reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees and bake an addition 35-40 minutes or until done in your oven.

  1. A Galette is one of my favorite ways to make a summer pastry with fruit. It is so simple and yet has so much for the summer flavor, this looks fabulous! Thanks so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and have a great weekend!

  2. I'm with Miz. I adore summer fruit galettes. I haven't seen nectarines at the farmers market yet, but we do have peaches.

  3. I've never tried a galette - but now that peach season is in full swing, I think I might try it.
