Whole wheat galette crust
- 1¼ cups white whole wheat flour
- ½ cup unsalted butter cubed and cold
- 2 tbsp turbinado sugar plus extra for sprinkling on crust before baking
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 large egg yolk
- 3 tbsp water ice cold
Maple Whiskey filling
- 1 lb peaches peeled, pitted and sliced

- 2 tbsp Whiskey Jack Daniel's
- 2 tbsp lemon juice fresh
- ⅛ tsp salt
- 2 tbsp light brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla bean paste

Whole wheat crust
Preheat the oven to 425°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside. Mix together the flour, sugar and salt. Cut unsalted cubed butter into the dough with a pastry cutter until the butter is about the size of a pea. Stir in the egg yolk.
Drizzle cold water over the flour mixture and mix until dough forms into a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and place in the refigerator for 20 minutes.
Remove dough from refrigerator and roll it out into a flat circle (⅛ inch thick). Place on baking sheet and set aside.
Maple Whiskey peaches
In a large bowl, mix the lemon juice, whiskey, maple syrup, salt, vanilla, brown sugar with the peaches. Be sure to coat them all.
Melt the unsalted butter in the skillet, pour peaches in and turn on medium-high for 10 minutes to caramelize them. Add cornstarch to thicken syrup.
Assembly of the galette
Arrange the caramelized peaches in the center of the dough, leaving about a 2 inch border. Gently fold up the edges of the dough all the way around. Brush edges with egg whites and spinkle with sugar.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the dough is golden and the peaches are bubbly. Remove and cool before cutting. Or you can serve it warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream!
