Last Sunday after church, my husband I stopped by my grandparents’ house and picked a few peaches from their garden. They were so sweet and juicy! My grandparents’ trees were packed with peaches so we had no choice but to pick a lot of them. With so many peaches at home my hands were itching to bake something with them. This peach galette definitely hit the spot. It’s best served warm, especially with some vanilla ice cream. I must warn you, it will disappear faster than you think 😉

3. Add in the cream cheese and form the dough into a flat disk shape. If the dough is too crumbly to form, add 1 tbsp of ice cold water. Careful not to over work the dough.

5. Slice the peaches about 1/4″ thick and toss them into a bowl. Add the cornstarch and 4 tbsp of sugar and gently mix just to combine.

6. On a floured surface, roll the dough out to a circle about 12-13″ in diameter. Using a rolling pin, transfer the dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. If some of the dough crumbles, just patch up cracks with the dough that crumbles off.

7. Begin arranging the sliced peaches into  circles starting for the outside in. Be sure to leave about 2 inches of space as the border.

8. Fold the edges of the dough over onto the peaches. With each fold slightly pinch the dough to keep it all together.
