This week’s recipe was Dorie’s Summer Fruit Galette (delicious!) chosen by Michelle of Michelle In Colorado Springs. Lately, over at TWD, we’ve started doing things a wee bit differently; for instance, now we’ve started being informed of the chosen recipes for the entire month, instead of one week at a time. I think I’m the only person out of the entire group who doesn’t really cozy up to this idea. Call me crazy, but I enjoy finding out one recipe at a time – its like a little weekly surprise! It sure makes Mondays a little more enjoyable, I’ll say that! But, I understand most of the members’ reasonings for wanting this new method- going to the grocery store sucks. Let’s just come right out and say it. Nobody likes to go more than they absolutely have to, so by finding out the whole month’s TWD recipes, it allows us to go the the store one time and get everything we need for the whole month of baking. I get it.  No judgement here, ladies. That’s why I didn’t make a peep when the idea was proposed…I’m just one of those weird people who like the spontaneity, I guess. I don’t have to have it, though….therefore, no gripes from SingForYourSupper!

Anyway, this galette rocked, in my fruit-and-pie-crust-lovin’ opinion! It starts with Dorie’s perfect Pie Crust, followed by apricot jam, graham cracker crumbs, plenty of fresh sliced summer fruit, such as nectarines, plums, apricots, peaches…(whatever your heart desires! I used nectarines and apricots), then topped with a surprisingly yummy pastry creme and baked….pure delicious, people! If you would like the recipe, and trust me, you do, you can visit Michelle’s blog and she’ll fix you right up! As always, you can see TONS more galettes on the other TWD members’ rockin’ blogs here.

  1. This looks so yummy. Your crust looks so delicious! I know what you mean about the weekly recipe surprise…but this time it really helped me b/c I went on a trip. And I think I need to get myself an ice cream maker soon! :) Great job!

  8. Beautiful pictures of your galette! I’m a fruit and pie crust lover too. I know what you mean about the little weekly surprises about the recipe, I enjoyed those too, but no complaints from me either, it is nice to be able to consolidate grocery shopping trips :)

  15. This looks delicious! I didn’t mind finding out on Mondays. I kind of like the advanced notice, though. I could go either way.

  23. Lovely galette! It was a big hit here, too.

    I liked the surprise too, but as I live a long way from town and only shop every other week, the advance notice sure helps!
