Peach Galette, formally known as Peach Tart, is a heavenly balance of a flaky, buttery, pastry lined with peaches and covered with an apricot glaze. It melts in your mouth with every bite. It is perfect for dessert or brunch and sure to impress!
Peach Galette is basically THE end-of-summer treat that you need.
