Peach, Blackberry, and Thyme Galette

Another perfect summer time pie using up all of the local fruit that Washington has to offer! This galette is super easy to make. I did it while drinking beers at my beach house with friends and family; it was perfection. I wish that summer could be like that ever day!

Peach, Blackberry, and Thyme Galette

Yields three small galettes, about 12 servings

For the whole wheat pie dough...

Ingredients:

2 1/4 Cup whole wheat flour

1/4 Cup brown sugar

1/2 tsp. salt

1 Cup unsalted butter, cold, cut into small pieces

1/4 Cup ice water, plus more if needed

Instructions:

1. Combine whole wheat flour, brown sugar, and salt in a medium bowl and whisk until combined. Use a pastry cutter to cut the butter in until mixture is crumbly and no pieces of butter are larger than peas. Pour the ice water over the dough and mix with a wooden spoon or a spatula until the dough comes together. If the dough isn't coming together, add more ice water 1 Tbsp at a time. Pat the dough into a ball, wrap it in saran wrap, and refrigerate for at least one hour or over night.
