This Brown Sugar and Nutmeg Peach Galette is SO. GOOD. Perfectly sweet with warming nutmeg undertones, and extra peachy. It's truly the perfect summer dessert!


Cream Cheese Crust

  • 1 ¾ cups all purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ cup salted butter, cold
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, cold
  • 1 ½ teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 3 ⅓ Tablespoons heavy cream


  • 3 cups sliced peaches
  • cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg



  • Combine flour, sugar, and baking powder in the bowl of a food processor.
  • Pulse a few times to combine.
  • Slice butter and cream cheese.
  • Add slices 1 or 2 at a time, pulsing a few times after each addition.
  • Add vinegar and cream.
  • Pulse until mixture comes together into a dough.
  • Lightly form into a ball and place on a piece of plastic wrap.
  • Flatten slightly and wrap securely.
  • Place in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  • Remove from refrigerator and place on a piece of lightly floured parchment.
  • Roll dough into a rectangle that is 1/4" thick. Set aside.


  • Combine peaches, brown sugar, and nutmeg in a medium bowl.
  • Toss to combine.

Putting It Together

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Layer peaches on crust, leaving a 2" edge of crust around the peaches.
  • Reserve any leftover liquid.
  • Fold the edges in over the peaches.
  • Bake for 45 minutes.
  • Brush reserved liquid over top of crust and over peaches.
  • Return to oven and continue to bake an additional 10-15 minutes, until crust is golden brown.


  • Don't overwork the pie dough!
  • Make sure your peach slices are uniform! This allows them to cook evenly.
  • You don't need a food processor to make this recipe. Just make sure to use a fork or a pastry blender to cut up the cream cheese and butter into the flour. The food processor just makes things easier!
  • Don't skip brushing the crust and peaches! This helps the crush brown, but also gives the peaches a little moisture without making the crust soggy.
