TWD: Summer Fruit Galette

This weeks TWD couldn't be more perfect for summer.
I've never made a fruit galette before, and from the picture of Dories other Galette, the dough looked pretty hard to do...but I was determined to do it!

Thank you SO much Michelle from Michelle in Colorado , this was such a great pick!
In the recipe, Dorie says you can add any assortment of fruit to this, and since it's summer, there are sooo many great fruits in season, so choosing some was not hard at all.

I chose an assortment of peaches, plums, pears, apricots and blueberries.
All those different flavors turned out great!
We had all my grandparents, plus a bunch of family friends over for dinner, so I was happy I had another excuse to bake this!

What I served this with was a no brainer...VANILLA ICE CREAM!
If you make this, I HIGHLY suggest serving it with ice cream...it really does make it 100 times better!
And now, for the after picture...

...can you guess if they liked it or not?

There was a fight for the last little sliver... ;D
Be sure to head over to the Tuesdays With Dorie site to check out more Galettes!

It was great without the ice cream -- I can only imagine how good it would have been if that had occurred to us! Thanks for the idea for next time.
