Peaches and walnuts with a lemony tang. This recipe is simple with just a few ingredients and it's delicious!
Oh, it's beginning to taste a lot like summer, 
With every bite I take! 

Have ready:
5 sliced peaches
pie shell

mix together
1 C. finely chopped walnuts
1/4 C brown sugar
2 egg yolks
(save the egg whites for coating the pie shell)
entire zest from 1 lemon
Preheat oven at 375 degrees. 
Roll out the pie shell and set on a pizza tray sprayed with Pam and floured.
Spread the walnut mixture leaving 1 1/2 inches of free edge.
 Arrange sliced peaches on top of the mixture.

I made more of the walnut mixture for the top but instead of egg yolk I added 1 T. of butter.

Walnut Crumble

mix together
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 T. butter
lemon zest
1/2 C chopped walnuts
1 T. flour

Spread crumble on top of peaches.
Fold-over the edge of the pie shell and wet the over-layed edge with water and slightly press to keep in place. Coat the edge with egg white.

Bake for 35 minutes and crust is browned.
Let cool for 10 minutes then transfer onto a floured surface.
Do not use a cooling rack because the galette crust might fall apart.

Once completely cooled, set on a pretty pie plate.
Top it off with vanilla bean ice cream and
Bon Appetit!
Enjoy your summer and thank you for stopping by to bake with me.
