Ingredients
  • For the Pie Crust:
  • All Purpose Flour (maida), 1½ cups
  • Caster Sugar, 3 tablespoons
  • Salt, ¼ teaspoon
  • Chilled Butter, ½ cup (cubed)
  • Chilled Water, ¼ cup
  • Egg (beaten), 1
  • For the Filling
  • Ripe Plums, 4-5 (sliced)
  • Pitted Fresh Cherries, ⅓ cup
  • Lemon Juice, of 1 lemon
  • Cinnamon Powder, ½ teaspoon
  • Caster Sugar, 2 tablespoons
  • Egg, beaten, 1
Method
  1. For the crust: In a bowl mix flour, sugar and butter with your finger tips until all the butter is incorporated and you have grainy mix.
  2. Add in the water and knead lightly to get the mixture together. Knead until you'e formed a dough. P.S. Do not knead the dough too much, only until it comes together.

  4. Form a disc of the dough, wrap it in cling film and refrigerate for at least an hour.
  5. For the topping: Mix together peaches, blueberries, lemon juice, sugar and cinnamon powder and set aside until your dough is ready. Make sure there are no juices in the filling leftover from the fruit because that could make your dough galette soggy.
  6. Mount the filling in the centre. Leave about 2 inches of dough around the filling. This is what you will fold over the filling to get that quintessential galette shape.
