The recipe I use for the dough is my mom's recipe. She's the resident pie expert in our family her pies are always amazing.
2 cups of flour
1 cup of butter-flavored shortening
1/2 tsp. of salt
Mix together the first 3 ingredients. Slowly add ice water to form a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
After making the dough, I sliced the fruit for the filling. I used 2 nectarines and 2 plums.
After I chilled the dough, I rolled it out with my rolling pin and laid it on a parchment paper-covered baking sheet. I layered the fruit in the middle of the dough (leaving about two inches of extra dough around the fruit) and sprinkled 2 tbsp. of sugar and 2 tbsp. of butter over the top. Then I just folded the edges of the dough up over the middle of the galette.
The last thing I did was brush some melted butter on the outside of the dough. I cooked the galette for 35 minutes at 375 degrees.
The result is a delicious, flaky treat, perfect for a summer evening.
