I’ve been testing tons of seasonal fruit recipes for you guys and this Nectarine and Honey Galette is one of them.I can’t believe it’s already August! This summer has flown by.
Nectarines tend to get passed over for their more popular sibling, peaches. After reading this post, What’s The Difference Between Peaches and Nectarines? by The Kitchn, I decided to give nectarines a chance for my next recipe. I was not disappointed. After I made my Drunken Cherry Almond Galettes, I fell in love with making galettes. As you may already know from previous posts, I love easy recipes. Since I’ve been baking galettes non-stop, I have one pro tip: While generic brand pre-made pie crust can usually be a good option, I’ve found that Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crust has the best consistency for these galettes. Pillsbury’s pie crust unrolls really easily and is less likely to fall apart. If your dough does fall apart, simply knead the dough and roll it out again. It’ll be good as new!

Last weekend was Lollapalooza–did you go? If so, I’m jealous. I’m especially jealous if you got to see Paul McCartney perform Hey Jude. I was live streaming the performance, but I’m sure the in-person experience was a million times better. For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, here’s a video clip (Apologies in advance for the shaky quality, it was the best I could find!):
