A sweet summer treat, my Easy Ginger Peach Galette. Layered with sweet peaches, candied pieces of ginger, peach jam, and lightly sweetened with honey. And made using flakey, buttery, puff pastry. It’s beyond delicious, so incredibly easy, and always comes out of the oven looking pretty. You can’t go wrong with this peachy galette plus a scoop of ice cream. A wonderful summer delicacy!

Come the end of July, the sweet summer peaches are really rolling in. They’re filling the shelves of our local grocery stores, farmers markets, and if you’re lucky enough – there at your local farm.

It’s so exciting! I said this last week when I shared my peach cobbler, but I’ve so many new ideas for peaches this summer. This is just the beginning!

We can’t really get berries year-round, but stone fruits are a totally different story. They’re at their peak season at the end of July through early September. Meaning now is the time to be eating them fresh and using them in both sweet and savory recipes.

One of my all-time favorite summer sweets is a stone fruit galette, but anytime I make a galette, I usually create a “cheaters” galette.

Instead of using homemade pie dough, I love to take a little help from the freezer aisle and use frozen sheets of puff pastry. In my opinion, it saves so much time. I almost always prefer a puff pastry over plain pie dough. Much more buttery, flaky, and delish!

Here are details

Step 1: toss and sweeten up the peaches

First, locate your best sweet peaches. Ideally, you want them to have a little bit of firmness to them. Avoid picking up anything overly soft. Of course, that will still be delicious, but tricker to bake with.

Toss the peaches with arrowroot powder (a less processed substitution for cornstarch, but you can also use cornstarch), ground ginger, and vanilla. Then add honey to sweeten to taste, and a high-quality peach jam.

Why use jam when you already have peaches?

The jam bakes into the tart and creates a sweet, glassy peach glaze. It’s so yummy and my secret to creating a really special galette.

Step 2: roll out the pastry

I like to roll the pastry out just slightly, then create a border with the extra sheet of pastry. It’s so easy to do. Just cut strips of pastry from the second sheet, then attach them to the larger sheet of pastry with a beaten egg. The egg will act like a “glue”.

This is an extra step, but the results are worth it! And you’ll love how pretty the galette turns out with the added depth from the pastry.

Step 3: layer the peaches

Grab the peaches from step 1 and start arranging them as best you can in a single layer. Placing them on the inside of the pastry dough. I like to tuck a few of the peaches underneath the border of the pastry to get the most peach slices packed in.

The honey and ginger we tossed with the peaches will add an extra layer of sweet, gingery flavor. And I just love the ginger spices with the flavor from the peaches. It’s an unexpected pairing, but currently one of my favorites.

Step 4: the ginger sugar

So this is a fancy, extra step, but you all, it’s so special. I took candied ginger chunks and pulsed them into fine pieces using a food processor. I would also imagine that you can do this with a blender. Then add a little coarse ginger sugar, it’s so sweet and fun!

Sprinkle the ginger sugar all along the pastry edges. When it bakes up you have the sparkly, golden ginger crust. It’s stunning and smells yummy too.

Every piece is bursting with sweet gingery peach flavor – THE BEST!

Of course, I serve this easy ginger peach galette up warm, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It’s really the only way to do it if you ask me!

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 375° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
    2. In a medium bowl, combine the peaches, arrowroot, ground ginger, and vanilla. Toss, then add the jam and honey. Gently toss again.
    3. Roll the pastry out a little to stretch it and then transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Brush the edges of the pastry with the beaten egg. Take the second sheet of pastry and cut 4 (1/2 inch) wide strips. Stick the strips around the edges of the larger sheet of pastry, pressing to adhere.
    4. Working inside the borders, arrange the peaches on top, gently wiggling them just slightly under the edge of the pastry. Use a fork to crimp the edges of the pastry shut to prevent any leaking, then brush the edges with the egg.
    5. In a food processor, pulse the ginger chunks into small pieces, add the course sugar, and pulse a few times to combine. Sprinkle the pastry edges with ginger sugar. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown. It's OK if the edges get dark. 
    7. Let cool slightly and serve with ice cream. Enjoy!

  1. Did you mean to link sushi ginger to the candied ginger in the recipe? I used sushi ginger, chopped it finely, and mixed it with sugar for the ginger sugar. Turned out perfect, but was just wondering if I made a mistake!

  2. 5 stars
    Such an amazing, easy recipie. The ginger sugar is next level amazing! I only had regular sugar to work with and it turned out great 🙂 Thanks for another great recipie!

  3. Two questions:
    1) Approximately what size should this galette be? 8 x 10? 6 x 8?
    2) Could I make this in the morning and serve it at room temperature at dinner time?

    Thanks! I love your recipes!

    We made the ginger peach galette. So easy. Ate it, next day we made a ginger pear galette. Added minced ginger to the fruit and peach jelly. OMG!

    EASY & DELISH!!! I rolled/stretched the pastry a bit too much but everything worked. I love ginger but the crystalized ginger chunks I had stuck to my blades in food processor and didn’t get as chopped up as I was hoping. Need to try again or come up with a plan B on that part. I like another comment that mentioned cinnamon. Cinnamon/sugar on the edges might work better for me. The pastry was nice and crisp underneath. Easy recipe and I will definitely make again. Wonder if it would work with thin apple slices in the fall!

    1. Hi! You could try to order peach jam online! You could use another flavored jam for a sub, maybe apricot for a similar flavor? xT

    Made this yesterday — so delicious! I omitted the ginger and added cinnamon (due to family preference) and it was perfect!

    1. Hi there,
      I think you could make this ahead of time and just serve at room temp:) If you wanted to reheat you could try just warming on very low for 10ish minutes. I hope this helps! xT

    First time making one of your desserts. Turned out gorgeous! Can’t wait to serve it tonight to friends.

    1. Hi Vicki,
      So glad to hear that this recipe turned out well for you, thanks for making it! Have a great Saturday! xT

  8. This looks wonderful, Tieghan! I love making galettes/crostatas, and peaches are especially delicious and pretty. Love your photos!🍑

  9. This looks amazing. The little bit of peach jam is interesting. Question: When you bake with peaches do you peel them first?

    1. Thanks so much Elizabeth! I did not peel my peaches:) Please let me know if you have any other questions! xT

  10. This looks so delicious. Peaches are our favorite fruit. We usually go to SC and get about 42 boxes for friends and family. However, this year they lost about 70% of their crop. We will not be going as it stands now. They are very expensive this year around here.

    1. Hi Charlotte,
      Thanks so much!! So sorry to hear about the peaches! Please let me know if you give this recipe a try! xT
