I had a pretty epic Saturday and it all started out with A Cozy Kitchen’s Peach Pistachio Galette. I got up bright and early and had myself a little treat while the house was asleep. Galettes are not technically a breakfast food, but it was Saturday and I had a ripe peach just begging to be baked up in a buttery galette. I love pistachios in baked goods and this one did not disappoint.
My Saturday was off to a delicious start and it just kept getting better. It was one of those gloriously free days where we had nothing planned so we decided to go into the city. I did a quick google search to see what was going on and saw that John Mayer was in town. His show was sold out but we managed to snag some tickets on StubHub.
We drove into town, had some soup dumplings for lunch, did a little shopping, had some boba tea and saw John Mayer under the stars. It was a good day and I’d like to think it was because I started my day off with dessert. Lesson learned: be spontaneous and have dessert first!
- 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon flour
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- pinch of salt
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon water
- 2 tablespoons roughly chopped pistachio
- 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
- pinch of salt, cinnamon and ginger
- 1/2 peach, thinly sliced
Combine the flour, sugar and salt. Cut the butter into the flour mixture using a fork until the butter is the size of small peas. Add the apple cider vinegar and water and knead slightly until it comes together. Form a small disk, wrap in plastic wrap and rest in the fridge for 1 hour.
In a small bowl, mix together the pistachios, sugar, salt, cinnamon and ginger.
Remove the dough from the fridge and roll out until 1/4 in thickness. Spoon the pistachios in the centre and arrange the peaches in a snug circle. Fold in the edges of the dough and then refrigerate for 15 minutes.
While you’re waiting, preheat the oven to 400°F. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Enjoy warm with whipped cream.
