Tuesdays with Dorie: White Peach and Honey Galette with Blackberry Salty Cashew Ice Cream

Grab a fork, and tuck a napkin under your chin. It's Tuesdays with Dorie....
But first, I've got good news: four fun give-aways from yesterday's post in honor of 100 Prudy posts in about as many days. Scroll down for a chance to win a copy of Dorie's cookbook, plus some other fun prizes.
This week, our assignment was a galette, which is essentially a free form pie-no pie dish needed. Sorry, old buddy Pyrex- but we can still be friends. I don't mean to be a rebel, but I just can't seem to follow the recipes exactly as I'm told. Try to understand, oh skinny Dorie. I had to make my tried and true old pie crust (with half whole wheat) from the Joy of Cooking. I never thought it was a low fat pie crust, until I made Dorie's super-EXTRA buttery crust, so now I make just a regular super buttery pie crust so I can fit into my jeans on Wednesdays.
The Quiet Man bought me a paper sack full of gorgeous white peaches. Who needs a dozen roses when such Garden of Eden fruit is to be had? It was hard to not eat them pie-less, plain, and perfect.
Dorie's recipe calls for a jam brushing over the center of the rolled-out crust; I used honey to compliment the natural sweetness of the peaches. The cut peaches are place in the center of the crust and then the edges are crimped and folded to encase the edges of the fruit. A sprinkling of sugar (I ditched the original recipe's custard topping) was all that rustic simplicity required.
DEE-LISH-US! Really truly. I made my pie for about $5.00, but the cost will vary greatly depending on your choice of fruit. Always try to use what you can find fresh and cheap. For complete recipe, click here.
But I couldn't stop there. If I'm going to indulge in pie, well, by golly it might as well be pie and ice cream. Peaches and blackberries are a marriage made in heaven, particularly with some roasted salted cashews thrown in for crunch and flavor balance. The ice cream is a simple adaptation on my friend Stephanie's vanilla ice cream.
Blackberry and Salty Cashew Ice Cream
Estimated Cost: $5.00
1 (10 ounce) can sweetened, condensed milk
1 cup whipping cream
3 cups milk (low fat is fine)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup blackberries, crushed (I used frozen)
1/2 cup chopped roasted salted cashews

Combine condensed milk, cream, milk, and vanilla in the bowl of the ice cream maker. Process according to manufacturer's directions in ice cream maker. When ice cream is thick, stir in blackberries and cashews.

Your peaches look wonderful, and I'm sure they made a delicious galette. And I'm intrigued by your ice cream flavor--I wouldn't have thought to pair blackberries and cashews, but it sounds yummy.

The Becketts said...

Marie said...

Oh gosh Erin! White peaches, blackberries, honey and the quiet man ... sounds like bliss! Your galette is fabulous and I Love the idea of the ice cream. I think I better dust off my ice cream maker, or at least make some room in the freezer for the insert. I am craving this now!

Natashya said...

Oh that looks so good! What a wonderful hubby you have who brings you presents of fruit.
The ice cream is a special touch, I love it!

Oh that,looks heavenly! I love white peaches. After seeing your ice cream posts, I might go out a buy an ice cream maker.

Good luck on bundt! Don't think I'll have a chance to enter but I did get one into Tillamook.

The DeLadurantey Sisters said...

Sweet and salty. Could it get any better?!?!?

Great job, it looks fabulous!

Andrea said...

Prudy you've done it again, everything looks amazing! I just keep adding your lovely recipes to my 'want to try' file, especially that ice cream, blackberry cashew, what a combo! The white peach honey galette is gorgeous as well.

my wonderful inlaws just brought a box of white peaches over from their neighbor's tree. there are plenty to eat while the juice drips down our faces and fingers and still many that look a little rough around the edges that are perfect for this galette. prudy, you read my mind by producing a white peach recipe today.
i have been on a homemade ice cream kick for the past few weeks. looks like it's time to go get more rock salt, ice, and whipping cream. i have GOT to try the blackberry cashew ice cream! (who wants to make a bundt on a hot summer day?:)

Aggie said...

That looks heavenly. I mean really, wow. What a creation!! I might have to start baking more, but it's hard enough to keep in shape without all these tempting sweets!!

Teresa Cordero Cordell said...

Prudy, thank you visiting my blog. I certainly like your site as well. Those peaches with honey galette look wonderful. I will be back. Thanks for sharing.

Birdie said...

I just found made my way to your blog and am I glad I did. I'll be visiting often! Love it

Sara said...

You are so creative. Love the different fruit combos you are using. I always just stick with the same thing. You are inspiring. Thanks!

gigi said...

Okay, first of all, I'm from the Peach state and I've never heard of a white peach?? Where have I been and where do you live? I feel like I'm losing it here?!? What's wrong with me? NO, don't answer that. Oh well when I get over the shock of this I'll try and come to grips with it all. I'm going straight for the ice cream! Yum, blackberries and cashews and creamy ice cream, oh yeah!

And second of all, back over on my blog about Cherry Delight, I went back in and posted that if you want to use the "light" versions of the cherries, sour cream and Eagle Brand Milk that it turns out just fine and you save yourself a lot of calories :)
Happy Days!

Mary Ann said...

Why must you torture me with the ice cream pic coming out of the ice cream maker? That looks so good and so does your only super buttery crust. I have to admit I liked the CL crust from the other galette I made. maybe because there was less guilt?

Susie Homemaker said...

ok, the galette looks fab, but the ice cream...WHOA! Gonna have to try me some of that!!

hornedfroggy said...

Yummy, yum, yum - Looks beautiful!! :)

Kayte said...

My, my, you certainly know how to add to the excitement of checking out these blogs...your photos, post, and food all look really great. I like your pie crust in this shot as it looks very rustic and healthy and I think a galette definitely fits more in that category than a regular pie...however, the ice cream just sends you right back to ARE YOU KIDDING WITH ALL THESE CALORIES???? LOL. Thanks for sharing your ideas...all great, and yes, I will try them. (In my little mini version ways, of course!)

taffi said...

oh my goodness... that is just divine.

Darius T. Williams said...

galettes much be the dessert of the season - I've been to quite a few blogs that speak of galettes. Yours looked good and those white peaches would have never made it on the pastry - lol. I would have been eating them.

As always, everything looks delicious. I love the idea of a free form pie. It looks so rustic and pioneer-ish! Very cute.

Beth said...

I love the sound ifthat ice crea. Blackberries are just coming to fruit over here. And as for the cashews - they are my all time favourite nut. Great match!

The Kitchen Vixen said...

oh your galette looks fab with all those lovely white peaches! The ice cream pushes my "safe food" boundaries a bit, but i may have to try it;)

PheMom said...

Oh my yum! Great idea!

Melissa said...

Wow, it looks amazing! I considered making ice cream to go with my galette, but I was just too plain lazy to follow through. Everything you made looks so delicious!

Jaime said...

Y-U-M!!! I just made a fresh peach crisp this weekend and my husband and I ate it up in ONE DAY (it was a small crisp...). We had some reduced fat vanilla ice cream withit, but MY-OH-MY, wouldn't blackberry salty cashew ice cream have put it over the top! Can I just say YUM, one more time?

Jaime

Jeena said...

Prudy your food always make me wish it were sat on a plate in front of me! This looks so tasty. :-)

Deanna said...

I am contemplating how to convince my husband to go by the Farmer's market to pick up the fruit so I can make this. Oh, yum!!

Engineer Baker said...

Wow, that ice cream sounds to-die-for! Beautiful.

Christine said...

The ice cream sound wonderful! Your galette is beautiful!

Madam Chow said...

I see that since low fat milk is fine in the ice cream, this now qualifies as "diet food!" I'll take a serving, and don't skimp!
