Peach galette



1.Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. Line oven tray with baking paper.
2.Halve peaches, discard seeds; slice peach halves thinly.
3.Place two pastry sheets on clean board; brush lightly with a third of the butter. Top with two more pastry sheets; brush lightly with half of the remaining butter. Repeat layering with remaining pastry and butter.
4.Fold pastry in half to form a square; cut 22cm-diameter circle from pastry square. Arrange peach slices on pastry circle; sprinkle with sugar.
5.Bake about 20 minutes or until galette browns. Serve warm galette brushed with jam.

Cover the pastry with greaseproof paper then a damp towel when you are working with it, to prevent it drying out. Nectarines, apricots, apples, plums and pears are all suitable fruits to use in place of the peaches.
