Easy Summer Fruit Galettes

2 (9 inch) refrigerated pie crusts
3 fresh peaches - peeled, pitted and sliced
1 pint fresh strawberries, sliced
1/2 pint fresh blueberries
4 tablespoons white sugar, divided
4 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided
6 tablespoons turbinado sugar, divided

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).               

Lay out one pie crust on a baking sheet lined with parchment or on a baking stone, leaving room
for the second pie crust next to it.               

Mix together the sliced peaches with half the blueberries, 2 tablespoons of the flour and 2 tablespoons of the sugar in a bowl.

Pour over one pie crust leaving a 1-inch border. Fold up the uncovered border over the edge of the fruit and pinch into pleats. Sprinkle the crust and fruit filling with 3 tablespoons of turbinado (or raw) sugar.               

Lay out the second pie crust on the baking sheet. Mix together the sliced strawberries, the rest of the blueberries, 2 tablespoons of flour and 2 tablespoons of sugar in the bowl. Pour over the second pie crust and form the galette the same as the first. Sprinkle with 3 tablespoons of turbinado sugar.               

Bake in preheated oven until crust is lightly browned, 12 to 14 minutes.

Sprinkle with more sugar if desired.

Serve warm or at room temperature.
