Mini Peach Galettes #FarmersMarketWeek


Here we are on Day Four - I skipped yesterday because my pickled eggs just weren't done in time! - of the 2018 #FarmersMarketWeek. This online Farmers' Market Week event is co-hosted by Ellen of Family Around the Table with help from Christie at A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures. I love those gals! They are so organized...which means the rest of us can just cook, post, and reap the benefits of this blogging community. Thank you, ladies.

Thursday #FarmersMarketWeek Recipes
   
Ingredients makes four small galettes
Crust 
  • 1-1/4 C flour
  • 1/4 C ground almonds
  • 2 T organic powdered sugar
  • 1/2 t vanilla salt
  • 1/2 C butter (1 stick), cubed
  • 1 t grappa or extract of your choice (I would use lemon extract)
  • cold water, as needed

Frangipane
  • 1/2 to 3/4 C ground almonds, as needed
  • 1/4 C organic granulated sugar
  • 1/4 C powdered sugar
  • 1/3 to 2/3 C melted butter, as needed
  • 1/4 t pure almond extract

To Finish
  • 2 organic, ripe peaches + more for garnish
  • organic granulated sugar
  • organic heavy whipping cream

Procedure
Crust
In a food processor, pulse the flour with the sugar and salt. Add the butter cubes and pulse until chunks the size of small peas form. Pour in grappa and 1/4 cup of cold water and pulse, again, till the dough comes together in a ball. Turn out the dough onto a piece of parchment paper and knead 2 to 3 times. Form into four balls, wrapping them in plastic and refrigerate until firm, approximately 1 hour.

Once they are chilled, press each ball out into a flat disk and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Frangipane
Mix everything together to form a thick paste. Form a disk slightly smaller in diameter than the crust and place the frangipane in the center of the crust.

To Finish
Place thin slices of peach on top of the frangipane and bring the crust up around the peach slices. Press gently to fold the crust onto the peaches. Sprinkle with sugar and bake for 45 to 50 minutes, until the peaches have softened and the crust has browned.



To Serve
Let cool slightly, then place the galettes on individual serving plates. Top with whipped cream and a peach slice as garnish.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
