Bourbon Peach Galette Recipe

Natalie Paramore | NatalieParamore.com Updated

Bourbon Peach Galette has sweet brown sugar and a touch of bourbon. The best dessert for summer.

This pie is an end of a really long work week, so I'm going to get drunk on pie-pie. But seriously. I have had a series of really busy weeks, so when Friday came along, I decided to forgo happy hour and dinner plans to come home and dive straight into this galette.

My mom came for a visit and brought me the most wonderfully ripe peaches from a local peach festival near her town. I know, I know it's a little cliché to say, but really, these peaches were so much sweeter and better than the ones I usually get at the store.

They were perfectly tender and juicy. Even their scent made my mouth water! So thanks, Mom, for saving a few of these peaches to bring to me!

My mom used her peaches and made some pies with brown sugar crumble crust. I decided to take mine up a notch or two with a little bourbon.

Perfect for a Friday evening happy hour, don't ya think?

I half-way had the idea to turn this whole recipe into a cocktail. I mean, brown sugar bourbon peach smash sounds just as good a pie, right?

When cooking and baking with adult spirits, I highly recommend keeping things as simple as possible. I think it makes the whole experience a little more enjoyable.

Enter the galette. It has all the flakiness and taste of a regular pie crust, but without the hassle of getting everything to look super perfect like lots of pies.

When I started on my pie adventure almost a year ago, I started with a galette! They are also wonderful for showing off gorgeous stone fruits which are in season right now, like peaches.

If you're trying to decide between happy hour or dessert, I say just combine the two and have a peach galette!
