Here is a recipe for a beautiful rustic dessert - puff pastry peach galette - that combines a buttery puff pastry, sweet peaches, the tangy note of lime, and the delightful flavor of rosemary. It is a must-make dessert during the summer months!
For the galette:
For the lime whipped cream:
Preheat the oven to 350 F/180 C. To toss peaches, in a large bowl, mix lime juice made out of two limes, granulated sugar, 7 long strips made by peeling the lime skin, and rosemary sprigs. Add peaches, stoned, and cut into 1/5 inches/1/2 cm-thick slices (about 10.5 oz (300 g) net weight). Soak peaches in the lime and rosemary-infused syrup at room temperature for 40 minutes to 2 hours.
Roll out the puff pastry under 1/5 inches/1/2 cm think into a 10 inches/26 cm-wide circle, then place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Arrange strained peaches in the middle of the puff pastry. Place them haphazardly or going around the circle like for an apple pie. Leave a clear 2 inches/5 cm border all around the edge. Then fold this 5 cm rim up and over the fruit, slightly covering them. Place small butter cubes over peaches. Brush folds of the puff pastry all over with the beaten egg. Sprinkle folds of the pastry with 1 tablespoon of sugar and bake for 20 minutes. Watch out for the golden edges of the pastry and bubbling of the filling.
While the galette is baking, whisk cornflour into the reserved peach syrup. Heat over medium-high heat for 2 minutes until it thickens (the consistency has to look like honey). Then pour this preparation over half-baked peaches. Sprinkle the rosemary leaves on top and bake for the other 15 minutes until the pastry is golden and the filling bubbling.
To make the lime whipped cream, whisk whipping cream with sugar and lime zest, refrigerate till serving.
Take the galette out of the oven, let it cool slightly. Serve the galette with the lime-infused whipped cream on top.
