Hi Bold Bakers!

A homemade Rustic Fruit Galette is the perfect summer dessert. It’s no-frills! Just wonderful, juicy summer fruits, and an incredibly soft and flavorful almond frangipane. 

It’s also super easy to make! This galette recipe uses any fruits you can grab at the farmers market, it can be made in advance, and, if you’re not up to making my Homemade Pie Crust, store-bought pie crust works just as well. We’re keeping it as simple as possible.

And yet, despite how easy it is, it still looks beautifully elegant. It’s the perfect dessert to serve outside on your picnic table, with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream, after a hot summer day.

What Is Summer Fruit Galette? 

A fruit galette is a lot like a tart or a pie but the best part, besides the fantastic flavor, is that they’re pretty hard to mess up. Making a pie look perfect takes some practice, but galettes are supposed to be rustic, and you’re supposed to see what delicious fruit is wrapped up in that yummy pie crust.

What Is Almond Frangipane?

This summer fruit galette also has my homemade frangipane in the center. Frangipane is a sweet almond-flavored pastry cream that is used in a lot of tarts and pastries. 

What You Need To Make Rustic Summer Fruit Galette

How To Make Rustic Summer Fruit Galette

This summer dessert couldn’t be more simple to make! (And don’t forget to get the full recipe with measurements, on the page down below.)

  1. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. Make the frangipane by melting the butter and then staring in the remaining ingredients. Place in the fridge to chill for at least 2 hours.
  3. Roll out your pie crust to about 1/8-inch thick circle and place on the prepped baking sheet. 
  4. Spread the frangipane in the center of the pie crust. You’ll want to leave about a 3 to 4-inch border all around.
  5. Place the sliced fruit on top of the frangipane.
  6. Fold the pie crust edges up over the fruit, pinching the crust together where it pleats to create a border.
  7. Brush the crust with egg wash and sprinkle it with sugar. 
  8. Bake in a preheated 425°F (210°C) oven for about 30 minutes, or until the crust is golden.

Gemma’s Pro Chef Tips For Making Rustic Summer Fruit Galette

  • Use my Homemade Pie Crust or a store-bought pie crust.
  • Use any mix of summer fruit you want!
  • You can make the frangipane up to 3 days in advance and the pie crust up to 2 days in advance. 
  • You can assemble the dessert up to 24 hours in advance and bake it fresh for when you need it!
  • Toward the end of summer, buy up the fruit from the farmers market and freeze it flat on trays. It’s a cheap trick, and the fruit will stay delicious! 

How Do I Store Rustic Summer Fruit Galette

This recipe is great for making in advance, but if you’ve already baked the galette, you can store any leftovers, loosely covered, at room temperature for up to 1 day, or in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. You can rewarm it in a 300°F (150°C) oven for 10 minutes.

Ingredients

Frangipane

  • ¾ cup (6oz/170g) butter
  • ¾ cup (6oz/170g) granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ cup (6oz/170g) almond meal (almond flour)
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Instructions

  • First, make the frangipane: In a heatproof bowl melt the butter either in the microwave or over a ban-marie.
  • Stir in the sugar, almond flour, flour, eggs, and almond extract. Chill for a minimum of 2 hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 425°F (210°C) and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Roll out the pie crust to roughly ⅛ inch thick round and place on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Spread the frangipane in the center of the pie crust, leaving about a 3-4 inch border all around.
  • Place the sliced fruit evenly on top of the frangipane.
  • Fold the edges of the pie crust over the fruit, pinching the crust together where it pleats, to create a border
  • Brush the crust with the egg wash and sprinkle the crust with sugar.
  • Bake for roughly 30 minutes, or until the crust is golden.
  • Serve warm with vanilla ice-cream. Store any leftovers loosely covered at room temperature for up to one day, or in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Rewarm, if desired, in a 300°F (150°C) oven for 10 minutes.

Nice Recipe Gemma! The perfect, easy, delicious dessert to complete a great dinner, serve with vanilla ice cream. The frangipane gives to this galette a special almond touch….Rustic and Elegant Dessert!!!

Well, I have to do it again!
The pie dough is super easy, shredding the frozen butter. Because our climate is hot, rather than use my hands, I mix with the wire whipper on my mixer. Quick and easy.

I cleaned out the bits and pieces of fruits into it. I love the mascarpone filling!

But! Somehow the crust opened and. The filling spilled. It’s still edible, but will try again. What’s the secret to prevent te crust from pending..coming unglued?

This dessert is so delicious! I made this recipe three times in one week for friends, family, and coworkers and they all wanted more. I used strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries (all perfect for summer) and it was a great combo with the almond frangipane. The recipe is very simple to follow and a perfect dessert for a warm summer day! Quick tip: If you are making this recipe on a hot day, try to work fast with the pie crust or it will start to melt a little in the oven. One time, I did put the whole thing in… Read more »

I never realized how easy frangipane is to make!! I only used half of the mixture for my galette and the portion was perfect. Also the added egg yolk in the crust made it so much easier to work with. My new favorite fool-proof crust recipe for sure!

That frangipane is such a perfect touch. My family enjoyed how fun and easy this recipe was using blueberries and rasberries.
