White Peach and Lemon Thyme Galettebyvvvanessa

WHO: vvvanessa is a recreational baker in Berkeley, CA who is constantly inspired by new ingredients. WHAT: A fragrant summer tart that's sure to be the centerpiece of your next dinner party. HOW: Toss peaches with honey and lemon thyme, wrap in a flaky dough, and serve with a dollop of honeyed crème fraîche. WHY WE LOVE IT: Finally, a dessert that incorporates fresh herbs without making us feel like we're eating a bar of soap. Instead of overpowering the galette, the thyme amplifies the sweet honey and the tart peaches. And it certainly doesn't hurt that the filling comes enveloped in a wonderfully buttery crust. We'll have seconds, please.

Keep folding, keep repeating the word rustic.

Because a little extra sheen is never a bad thing. Are we right?
