Juicy fresh peaches are baked in a delicious, flaky crust for this super easy Peach Skillet Galette that is baked in your favorite cast iron skillet.
Today I am sharing this super easy Peach Skillet Galette in honor of #TeamRyan.
In December of 2013 just after fellow food blogger Ashley of Center Cut Cook found out she was expecting her first child, her husband Ryan was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon Cancer. At just 8 weeks old they discovered their son Miles has a rare disease called Primary Hyperoxaluria (type 1) and is in need of a life-saving liver and kidney transplant. Their days are busy keeping up with bi-weekly chemotherapy for Ryan and around the clock care of Miles who needs hemodialysis four days per week and peritoneal dialysis daily along with too many medications to count. If you would like to help donate to a truly good cause, please don’t hesitate to, every little bit counts. Also you can find out more and follow their journey on Facebook.
Today I’ve teamed up with a great group of bloggers to help support the Wagner family in raising awareness of their cause and by sharing comfort food recipes. Nothing makes a bad day better like a nice comfort meal, but let’s not forget about dessert too.
You know those days when you just want a nice warm slice of comforting pie, yeah me too! This Peach Skillet Galette is super easy to make and perfect for satisfying your pie cravings. Sweet fresh peaches are baked in a delicious flaky pie crust and it’s really simple to make, no fancy pie crust forming skills required.
Honestly I think one of the reasons I love baking galettes is the lack of technical skill it requires, my crust shaping skills are seriously lacking. Like seriously! I am sure if I really put the effort into baking pies more often I could quickly become awesome at it, but for now I am content to eat my pie rustic-style.

Oh, yum!! Of course, don’t forget about dessert! Your galette looks amazing and I’m loving the idea of making it in a cast iron pan. I’ll be trying this one for sure!
Thank you Sheila 🙂
Gretchen @ Two Healthy Kitchens says
Oh Emily … I want to make this pretty much every single day! I don’t have excellent crust-making skills either … so you and I should just stick to galettes! 🙂 And peaches?? Oh I can’t wait for summer!!!
This has been such a great experience to work together for such a worthy cause … and to help such an amazingly sweet family!
Thank you Gretchen, I totally feel the same way! I am a huge fan of cooking, baking or just plain eating fresh peaches 🙂
Great recipe! I’m always looking for good galette recipes. My bf prefers pie, but anything but the fruit to crust ratio in a galette is blasphemy in my book. And since I’m the baker in the family, I decide. Mwahahahaha.
thank you Devin, you will love this galette, lots of tasty peach flavor!
Made this Galette today and it was delicious, super easy to make and very tasty. I will definitely save this recipe!
