Champagne and Cookies

Ahh, (insert long sigh here) Galettes... Even the sound of the word evokes visions of lovely golden flaky pastry, seasonal fruit and Vanilla Ice Cream. I love baking Galettes because they are rustic, free form and care free... Don't get me wrong, they are also an investment in time to make but well worth it...

Summertime lends its way to some of my favorite fruits, Stone-fruits that is including Peaches, Plums, Pluots, Apricots, Cherries and Nectarines. In this particular Galette, I've paired Nectarines with a few of my favorite Spices, Cardamom and Vanilla. And of course, I also added a little boozy element to this favorite lineup. I added a few splashes of Grand Marnier in the filling and in the glaze and it is a tasty combination.

You can serve this with either Whipped Cream, Vanilla Ice Cream or all on it's own. I like to serve my Galettes with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream... Enjoy either way... Roll up your sleeves and get started... Enjoy this recipe, I know we sure did..
