Author Notes: I lived in France for a while and learned a new appreciation for rustic, free-form pastries. The galette quickly became one of my favorites for its simplicity and versatility.Cynthia Groseclose

Thank you Apple Annie and this recipe could absolutely be adapted for plums or any fall/winter fruit. I have been thinking about one with pears or even an orange/cranberry galette recipe for the holidays...

This looks beautiful, I would love to make this before our Ohio peach season finishes. Could this recipe also be adapted for plums?
