I’m so glad that you liked the recipe. White peaches and amaretti cookies! sounds like perfection in a slice to me!

I’ve been dying to get my hands on Dorie’s book, but Amazon won’t deliver that particular book (along with several others) to Malaysia. It’s not fair! Especially since your galette looks so good.

I like the looks of this with the sliced peaches. Makes it look rustically elegant. And adding amaretti cookies rather than graham crackers. What a great idea. UUMMM!!!!

Lowfat cream cheese for the shortening! I love that idea! Anything to make this somewhat not as bad for you! Your galette looks just as you described it! Luscious!

I really should get this book.
Using amaretti cookies sound like a great idea.

Gorgeous! I love the white peaches. Is your cream cheese substitution for all of the shortening and butter or just shortening?

So pretty! May I have a slice? Please.

I love the cream cheese as a substitution. I just left the shortening out completely. The crust doesn’t need any more butter. We loved it, too. Yours is beautiful.

Man oh man…white peaches are good, but the custard is the perfect compliment to the fruit–even sparingly. Still, looks delicious :)

The cream cheese subbed for shortening is a smart idea. I will have to give that a try in the future. The galette is simply beautiful.

Agreed! Its my favorite Dorie recipe now (it 1-upped the lemon cream tart by a smidge). Too bad you didn’t try the custard. I thought it was amazing! But I hear ya on the extra calories. I couldn’t resist though…

This looks gorgeous! I love white peaches. Thanks for the tip on subbing low-fat cream cheese for the shortening. I just subbed w/ butter and that worked well too.

I thought the blueberry pie was my favorite, but the galette is running a close second. Yours looks beautiful and the white peach looks great fanned out.
