Nectarine Galette


I decided to experiment and made a nectarine galette with a cornmeal crust. Cornmeal is one of my most favorite ingredients to use and it gave this free form pie an additional texture. The flavor of the nectarines were a little too delicate to be cooked, but tasted great with the addition of raspberries.  Next time I will decrease the amount of cornmeal I used and use a combination of different fruits.

Also, welcome to the new home of Matchbox Kitchen! Things are still a little bit under construction while I work out the kinks, but I hope you like new design and additional content to come!

I have never made a galette before. This looks tasty! If the dough is anything like pie crust, count me in :)

galettes are one of my favorite desserts – although I haven’t tried a nectarine one. it sounds & looks delicious.

To be honest, I would not suggest using nectarines. The flavor is too delicate to be baked, but it was the only fruit I had. I did add raspberries on top and it added a burst of flavor.

Thanks, Mallory! I think I grew many grey hairs in the process. Next time I’m definitely hiring someone!
